Altogether, Hypnotic Eye moved 131,000 copies in its first week, enough to bump Aussie boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer‘s self-titled debut off the top and down to #4. Coming in just behind Petty at #2 is another rock legend, Eric Clapton, with his latest album The Breeze: An Appreciation Of JJ Cale (61,000). The Guardians Of The Galaxy companion album/soundtrack Awesome Mix Vol. 1 rounds out the upper portion of debuts by entering at #3 (60,000).
One noteworthy bit of activity on this week’s album chart: the Frozen soundtrack slips to #6 after an epic 31 weeks inside the Top 5.
