You read it first in The Seattle Times. This week’s industry bible, Billboard magazine, arrived today and, as we predicted, the new disc by The Head and the Heart, “Let’s Be Still” (Sub Pop), debuted in the Top 10 on the album charts, with sales of 42,000 copies in its first week.

And guess what the No. 1 album is?  Pearl Jam’s “Lightning Bolt.” Let’s see, can Seattle take credit for any of the other top tenners? Okay, fine. We don’t want Miley Cyrus, anyway. Nice to see country youngster Scotty McCreery back in the race, though.

Here are the Top 10 albums, in order:

Pearl Jam, “Lightning Bolt”

Miley Cyrus, “Bangerz”

Paul McCartney, “New”

Drake, “Magpie and the Dandelion”

Scotty McCreery, “See You Tonight”

Lorde, “Pure Heroine”

Cher, “Closer to The Truth”

Willie Nelson, “To All the Girls…”

The Head and the Heart, “Let’s Be Still”
