The other Top 50 newcomer is ABKCO’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World soundtrack (#26), while both Columbia’s Glee Journey to Regionals (#44) and Mercury’s Taio Cruz (#48) re-enter.

Biggest gainer is Monkeywrench’s Eat Pray Love soundtrack, featuring Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, which moves #44-16, +120%, after the Julia Roberts movie opened wide last Friday.

Other double-digit moves are registered by Glassnote’s surging Mumford & Sons (#32-21, +30%) and Atlantic’s Step Up 3D soundtrack (#38-29, +22%).
