Look who’s back at the top of the chart.

After a fortnight, Shady/Aftermath/Interscope hip-hop superstar Eminem returns to #1, as Recovery sells another 152k and climbs within several thousand of 2 million in its seventh week.

That’s enough to turn back Merge indie rockers Arcade Fire, whose critically acclaimed third album, The Suburbs, debuts at #2 with 143k.

Last week’s chart-topper, Warner Bros.Avenged Sevenfold (#3) is next, with a pair of debuts in Rap-a-Lot/Fontana’s Bun B (#4) and Interscope’s Lady Gaga Remix album (#5) rounding out the Top 5.

The rest of the Top 10 includes Def Jam/IDJ’s Rick Ross (#6), Island/IDJ’s Justin Bieber (#7), Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown’s Drake (#8), Capitol Nashville/EMI’s Lady Antebellum (#9) and new entry Eleven Seven’s Buckcherry (#10).

Silver Arrow/Megaforce’s Black Crowes return with a two-CD acoustic album, Croweology, which enters at #11.

Other chart newcomers include Glassnote’s Secondhand Serenade (#36) and Atlantic’s Step Up 3D soundtrack (#38), while Hollywood’s Selena Gomez & the Scene (#47) and Prospect Park’s Five Finger Death Punch (#48) both re-enter the Top 50.

Columbia’s Train, with a hot follow-up to the smash “Hey, Soul Sister” in “If It’s Love,” are the week’s big gainers, moving #28-20, +26%, followed by Big Machine’s Taylor Swift as Fearless moves #41-37, +12%, capitalizing on the release of her new #1 iTunes smash, “Mine.”

Other moves are registered by Hollywood’s Miley Cyrus (#33-28, +7%), Kemosabe/RCA/RMG’s Ke$ha (#32-27, +6%) and Reprise’s Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (#26-24, +5%).
