IN a week with few high-profile new releases, Staind's "Chapter V" captured the No. 1 spot on the national album chart by selling 185,000 copies in its first week in stores, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the third consecutive album by the rock band to enter the chart at No. 1.
No other new release sold more than 50,000 copies last week.
Nickel Creek's "Why Should the Fire Die?" entered the chart at No. 17 with first-week sales of 42,000, while Michael McDonald's "Ultimate Collection" debuted at No. 19 with sales of 40,000.
