No More Doubt

Madonna’s “Evita” soundtrack has finally broken the stranglehold of No Doubt’s “Tragic Kingdom” on the top spot of The Times’ Southern California album sales chart. Meanwhile, soundtracks continue to do well, with “Romeo & Juliet” and “The Preacher’s Wife” both continuing to rank in the Top 10 among all albums and “Rhyme & Reason” breaking into the rap Top 10. Moving up: The Wallflowers’ “Bringing Down the Horse,” which is No. 11 on the Southern California album chart and No. 17 nationally.
