Legendary metal band Iron Maiden return to the top of the album chart for the first time since 1992. This knocks Eminem from the summit after he logged six weeks at #1. Three years makes a big difference for Hoosiers. Their first album hit #1 in 2007 with two top 10 pop singles. Their follow up only manages to open at #10 and is yet to produce a top 10 hit. After five consecutive top 10 studio releases, singer-songwriter David Gray limps to a #18 opening with Foundling.
