Like the piercing pain in the gut that follows a heartbreaking loss, the dark, emotive sounds of Massachusetts metal quartet Staind stay with you long after you hear them. The band's soul-baring lyrics of isolation, anger and confusion are a huge part of its appeal, but it's Staind's ability to mesh infectious melodies with raw yet lustrous vocals and expressive guitar work that made its "Break the Cycle" one of the most anticipated rock albums of the year.

Staind's new "14 Shades of Grey" album sold a modest 221,000 copies in its first week in the stores, but it was enough to capture No. 1 on the nation's sales chart Wednesday, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The Massachusetts rock group's last album, "Break the Cycle," sold more than three times that number -- 717,000 copies -- during its first week in the stores two years ago. The album, which featured the radio hit "It's Been Awhile," went on to sell more than 5 million copies.
