Bruce Springsteen makes a victorious debut on Billboard's European Top 100 Albums chart, as "Working On A Dream" (Colmbia/Sony Music Entertainment) enters at No. 1, outselling Franz Ferdinand's "Tonight: Franz Ferdinand" (Domino), which is new at No. 2. Eurochart Hot 100 Singles is led for a fifth week by Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold" (Virgin/EMI).

Springsteen is a frequent visitor to the top of the pan-European sales chart. His last album "Magic" had three weeks at the summit in October and November 2007, "We Shall Overcome - The Seeger Sessions" a week there in 2006, "Devils & Dust" three weeks in 2005 and "The Rising" one week in 2002.

"Dream" sells 67,000 for a No. 1 debut in the United Kingdom, about 10,000 units down on opening sales for "Magic." The new set also arrives in pole position in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Ireland.

The Franz Ferdinand album is also behind Springsteen at No. 2 in the United Kingdom with sales of 27,000, modest by comparison to the 101,000 opening tally for its predecessor "You Could Have It So Much Better" in 2005. "Tonight" is new at No. 2 in Germany, No. 3 in Switzerland, No. 4 in Holland, No. 5 in Austria and No. 8 in Italy.

Seal's "Soul" (Warner Bros.) has another good European sales week, moving up two places to No. 3 after an 8-5 move in Denmark. The album has Platinum Europe certification for one million shipments across the region. Kings of Leon's "Only By The Night" (Hand Me Down/Sony Music Entertainment) is steady at No. 4 on the composite chart, improving 5-3 in Holland, and Amy Macdonald moves back up a place to No. 5 overall with "This Is The Life" (Vertigo/Universal), which is up 10-6 in Italy, fuelled by the success there of the title track single, which is up 3-2.

Pink's "Funhouse" (LaFace/Sony Music Entertainment) drops 3-6 on Top 100 Albums, and 7-8 in Germany, and there's a sharp decline for Antony & the Johnsons' "The Crying Light" (Rough Trade). After a pan-European No. 1 debut last week, the album falls to No. 7 after declining 2-4 in Sweden and 18-38 in the United Kingdom.

Beyoncé spends a third straight week at No. 8 overall with "I Am...Sasha Fierce" (Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment), which is also steady at No. 7 in the United Kingdom. But Duffy's "Rockferry" (A&M/Universal) slides 2-9 on the aggregate survey after falling 1-6 in Greece and 1-3 in Denmark. The soundtrack of "Twilight" (Atlantic/Warner Music) makes its first appearance in the Europe-wide top ten, climbing 11-10 after moving 6-2 in Greece, 4-3 in Austria and 6-5 in Germany.

Perry's single is up 3-2 in Austria, 8-5 in Italy and is at No. 1 again in Switzerland, No. 2 in Norway and No. 3 in Germany. "Broken Strings" (Polydor/Universal) by James Morrison featuring Nelly Furtado holds at No. 2 on the Eurochart, and Interscope/Universal's Lady Gaga scores simultaneous top five singles, racing 29-3 with "Poker Face" and slipping 3-4 with "Just Dance" featuring Colby O'Donis.
