We assess the sophomore album from the Down Under pop punk band.

Sydney pop punk quartet 5 Seconds Of Summer land their second consecutive #1 album on the Billboard 200 this week, as Sounds Good Feels Good (192,000 units; 179,000 sales) manages to force Carrie Underwood‘s Storyteller (177,000 units; 164,000 sales) into a #2 debut. This marks only the second time American Idol alum Underwood has had to settle for a #2 peak (so far) with a studio album, the first time being with 2005 debut Some Hearts. Her following three studio albums each debuted at #1.

Elsewhere, Voice coach Blake Shelton‘s second hits collection, Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits (40,0000 units; 33,000 sales) goes in at #5, while Pentatonix‘s self-titled LP, which was last week’s chart-topper, drops to #8 and Demi Lovato‘s Confident (#2 last week) tumbles out of the Top 10 altogether.
