Springsteen enters at #1 in 10 countries, including the United States

Bruce Springsteen's 'Magic' (Columbia Records) will make its entrance on Billboard's Top 200 album chart at the number one spot this week.

The album, released on October 2, debuted at number one in the UK, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Canada and on the pan-European chart. The album has already been certified Platinum in Ireland and Italy and Gold in Austria, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Spain, Sweden, UK and Canada.

Springsteen has earned raves for his new record across the board:

"A firm beat, some Telecaster sting and the robust peal of Clarence Clemons' saxophone can still tell you more about the human condition than a thousand op-ed words... Five stars " - Rolling Stone

"A" - Entertainment Weekly

"Spellbinding... a revved-up triumph... Four stars" - USA Today

"Four stars" - LA Times

"The new Bruce Springsteen album is everything you want it to be." - People Magazine

"Gripping... poignant." - NY Daily News

"'Magic' adds to Mr. Springsteen's legacy." - The Wall Street Journal

"Nothing short of an answered prayer." - The Village Voice

Springsteen is currently on tour with The E Street Band. The vast majority of concerts have sold out. Fan demand has driven the addition of a second Oakland show, to be held October 25 at Oracle Arena. Reviews have been exemplary:

"These blue-collar prophets still can cast a potent spell." - USA Today

"At the Wachovia Center, [Springsteen] restored one's faith in rock and roll." - Philadelphia Inquirer
