The Raconteurs’ “Help Us Stranger” leads first “Rolling Stone” albums chart

Third Man RecordsThe Raconteurs‘ new album Help Us Stranger leads the inaugural edition of Rolling Stone‘s Top 200 Albums chart.

The ranking is part of the magazine’s newly launched foray into the chart game, which aims to combat “traditional once-a-week metrics” with “an interactive set of music charts that update on a daily basis and offer an impartial, in-depth and in-the-moment view of the biggest songs, albums and artists in music.”

In addition to the Top 200 Albums chart, the Rolling Stones charts will measure the top 100 songs, the top 500 artists, and the top 25 “breakthrough” artists and “trending” songs.

Help Us Stranger, the first Raconteurs album in over 10 years, also debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.
