THE CHART

OH MY GODSMACK!

Never underestimate America's appetite for good old-fashioned metal. Faceless, the third album from New England thrashers Godsmack, sounds a lot like the band's first and second discs, which is probably why it entered at No. 1, drawing 267,000 devil-sign-pumping fans. In other chart news, 142,000 Lisa Marie Presley fans can't be wrong: They sent her debut CD, To Whom It May Concern, to the No. 5 spot in its first week of release. Ginuwine's The Senior jumped in at No. 6 thanks to ''Hell Yeah,'' his duet with Baby, while sweet baby James Taylor lured 73,000 buyers to his greatest-hits set for a No. 11 finish.
