Ah well, it was a fun revolution while it lasted.
After chart-toppers from Modest Mouse and the Arcade Fire (OK, it was a #2), I fully expected that Bright Eyes new album, Cassadaga, would enter the Billboard chart at #1. Well, I was 3 spots off, as Yahoo! reports that Cassadaga enters at #4 with 58,000 records sold. NOW 24 and Tim McGraw jumped back up to the top 2 spots, leaving Conor to merely be content with having the highest debut on this charts for this week (and highest for Bright Eyes ever).
