Nelly Furtado's "Loose" (Mosley/Geffen) returns to No. 1 on European Top 100 Albums, ending Norah Jones' five-week tenure with "Not Too Late" (Blue Note/Parlophone), which dips to No. 3.

"Loose" led the composite chart for two non-consecutive weeks earlier this year. "The Sweet Escape" (Interscope) by Gwen Stefani featuring Akon tops Eurochart Hot 100 Singles for a second week.

Furtado's return to the albums peak is aided by climbs of 3-2 in Germany and 5-3 in the Belgian region of Flanders, while "Loose" also holds at No. 3 in Switzerland and No. 4 in Portugal. Its current single "Say It Right" completes a steady climb into the U.K. top ten, 11-10 in its sixth week. It also debuts at No. 2 in Germany and climbs 6-1 in Switzerland, statistics which fuel a 31-3 jump on the Eurochart. Remarkably, Furtado has two of the top three pan-European singles titles of the week, since its predecessor and former Eurochart No. 1 "All Good Things (Come To An End)" climbs back 6-2 after a 2-1 climb in Norway and No. 9 debut in France.

The Arcade Fire's "Neon Bible" (Merge) debuts at No. 2 on Top 100 Albums, posting a series of top ten debuts across Europe. It's in at No. 1 in Ireland, No. 2 in the United Kingdom (on sales of 65,000) and Portugal, No. 3 in Norway, No. 5 in Finland, No. 9 in France and No. 10 in Germany, and climbs 35-5 in Flanders.

Herbert Grönemeyer's "12" (Capitol) lands on the Europe-wide chart at No. 5, as the German superstar makes his customary clean sweep of the G/S/A territories, hitting No. 1 in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

French electro duo Air's fourth studio album "Pocket Symphony" (Virgin) is new at No. 7 on Top 100 Albums, starting at No. 7 in the United Kingdom, No. 8 in Germany and France, No. 9 in Portugal, and climbing 31-4 in Flanders. Its predecessor "Talkie Walkie" opened at No. 1 on Top 100 Albums in February 2004.

The last of four top-ten newcomers on the aggregate album chart is Bryan Ferry's collection of Bob Dylan covers, "Dylanesque" (Virgin) at No. 10. That follows a No. 5 start in the United Kingdom on sales of 29,000. In 1973, some 14 months after first charting there as frontman of Roxy Music, Ferry launched a concurrent solo career with a top ten hit version of Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall."

The classical work "Duets" (Deutsche Grammophon) by Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon arrives on Top 100 Albums at No. 13, after charting in Germany at No. 3 and Austria at No. 4. The album contains interpretations of compositions by Puccini, Donizetti and Verdi.

"The Sweet Escape" snags a second week atop the Eurochart after moving up 3-2 in the United Kingdom and 6-5 in Ireland, although it falls back 6-8 in Germany.

Also moving well on the collective singles survey is "She's Madonna" (Chrysalis) by Robbie Williams featuring the Pet Shop Boys, 10-4. It's in at No. 3 in Spain and No. 16 in the United Kingdom, up 5-3 in Holland and 19-5 in Flanders, and holds at No. 4 in Germany.
