Chart Moves: Garbage Returns to Billboard 200 Albums Chart, 'Newsies' Cast Recording Rebounds

The Billboard 200:

As previously reported, former "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert grabbed his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as his Trespassing set started atop the list with 77,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. He bumped fellow "Idol" Carrie Underwood's Blown Away out of the No. 1 slot, marking the first time one "Idol" has replaced another at No. 1.

Now, let's look at some of the movers and shakers farther down this week's list:

Garbage: The band's new album, Not Your Kind of People, debuts at No. 17 with 19,000 sold -- the group's sixth overall chart entry. The new set is its first studio offering since 2005's Bleed Like Me, which bowed and peaked at No. 4 with 75,000. Meanwhile, the new album's single "Blood for Poppies" rises 32-31 on Rock Songs.

Bleed Like Me also happens to be the act's highest-charting set, and its only top 10 album. But, it only spent 11 weeks on the chart. It's breakthrough self-titled debut album spent a whopping 81 weeks on the list, but only rose to No. 20. Garbage's next two albums -- 1998's Version 2.0 and 2001's BeautifulGarbage -- both debuted and peaked at No. 13. (Their sixth entry on the list was the 2007 greatest hits package Absolute Garbage, which topped out at No. 68.)

Pantera: The 20th anniversary deluxe reissue of its Vulgar Display of Power album -- which originally peaked at No. 44 on March 14, 1992 -- is the reason behind its return to the list at No. 88 this week. The set boasts an unreleased "lost" song as well as a concert DVD. In turn, it sold 5,000 copies last week -- up from basically nothing the week previous.

"Newsies" Original Broadway Cast Recording: The album jets back onto the list (a reentry, and new peak, at No. 72) after its physical CD was released on May 15. Overall, the album moved a little over 6,000 last week (up 618%) -- its best sales frame yet. The set initially debuted on the Billboard 200 six weeks ago (No. 74), exclusively as a digital download (just under 6,000). Over on the Top Cast Albums chart this week, it returns to No. 1 (moving up five slots) while its cumulative sales now stand at 16,000.

Guns N' Roses, Michael Jackson, Journey: A number of '80s-oriented albums earned discounts and promotions in the iTunes Store last week, including Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction (No. 151, up 34%), Michael Jackson's Number Ones (No. 96, up 91%) and Journey's Greatest Hits (No. 65, up 48%).
