Guns N' Roses soars to the top of the new European Top 100 Albums survey with "Chinese Democracy" (Black Frog/Geffen/Universal), as Beyoncé's "If I Were A Boy" (Columbia/Sony BMG) starts a second week at No. 1 on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles.

"Democracy" races 36-1 after making a series of notable debuts in European markets. That includes only one No. 1 debut, in Switzerland, but the album secures a second week at the helm in Finland and debuts at No.2 in the United Kingdom (on 119,000 sales) and Germany, No. 3 in Italy, Austria and Ireland, No. 4 in Holland, Sweden and Hungary and No. 9 in Portugal. The comeback release also climbs 5-2 in Norway and 26-10 in France.

The Killers' third studio album "Day & Age" (Def Jam/Universal Island) arrives at No. 2 overall, missing the top spot despite a bestselling debut in the United Kingdom on robust sales of 200,000. The new title hits No. 1 in Norway and Ireland, No. 4 in Switzerland and No. 8 in Germany. The Killers' previous studio set "Sam's Town" also started at No. 2 on the composite survey, in October 2006.

The next three titles each fall one place on Top 100 Albums. AC/DC's "Black Ice" (Columbia/Sony BMG) is at No. 3 overall, holding at No. 4 in France; Enya's "And Winter Came" (Warner Bros.) is at No. 4, enjoying climbs of 5-2 in the Belgian region of Flanders and 3-2 in neighboring Wallony and Holland; and Il Divo's "The Promise" (Syco Music/Sony BMG) is at No. 5, debuting at No. 2 in Greece and holding at No. 2 in Spain, but dropping 1-3 in Flanders and 1-2 in Portugal.

Seal's "Soul" (Warner Bros.) holds at No. 6 on the pan-European chart, benefiting from a 5-1 climb in Wallony and a second week at No. 1 in France. Pink also holds steady, at No. 7, with "Funhouse" (LaFace/Sony BMG), improving 10-8 in Greece and holding at No. 8 in its fifth week on the U.K. chart. Dido's "Safe Trip Home" (Cheeky/RCA) slides from No. 1 to No. 8 on the composite chart, falling from No. 2 to No. 18 in the U.K.

The other top ten pan-European newcomer is perennial German favorite Herbert Grönemeyer's "Was Muss Muss" compilation (Capitol), new at No. 9 after a customary No. 1 start in his home market. The best-of also debuts at No. 1 in Austria, while the single "Gluck" is up 10-7 in Germany.

Closing out the Europe-wide top ten, Walt Disney/Hollywood's "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" soundtrack holds at No. 10, posting a 2-1 climb in Hungary and holding at No. 4 in Spain, where the single "Be Mine" is at No. 2 again.

The Beyoncé single is No. 1 again in Norway and Sweden and up 7-3 in Austria, but falls 1-2 in the United Kingdom and Denmark. The Eurochart top three is unchanged, with Guru Josh Project's former No. 1 "Infinity 2008" (Bigcitybeats) in runner-up place again and Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" (Virgin/EMI) steady at No. 3. The top newcomer is British pop quartet Take That's "Greatest Day" (Polydor), in at No. 8 after a No. 1 start in the United Kingdom on sales of 70,000.
