Eagles' new album beats Spears' "Blackout" on U.S. Billboard top chart

The Eagles beat Britney Spears for the top spot on the Billboard 200 Top Albums chart this week.

The band's new album, "Long Road Out of Eden," debuted at No. 1 on the chart by selling 711,000 copies during its first week of release, Billboard.com reported Tuesday.

Spears' album "Blackout" sold 290,000 copies.

The Eagles' first album in 28 years landed on top after Billboard revised a policy which considers albums sales even when they are sold exclusively by one retailer.

Billboard changed its policy after Wal-Mart, which had exclusive rights to sell the Eagles album in its stores and on its Web site, agreed to release its sales numbers, Geoff Mayfield, Billboard's director of charts said.
