Last week, you'll remember, Mumford & Sons' Babel trounced new albums by such heavyweights as Green Day and No Doubt. This week, Babel stays on top of The Billboard 200 for a second week, but the big surprise is that Green Day's Uno! and No Doubt's Push And Shove both drop out of the top 10. Uno! drops from #2 to #11. Push And Shove drops from #3 to #13.
