Eminem's 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' tops this week's Official Record Store Chart.

The album, which is also Number One in the Official Albums Chart, beat off competition from last week's Number One album, Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor', and Midlake's 'Antiphon' to land the top spot. The Official Record Store Chart reflects sales in the UK's independent record shops. It was launched as part of last year's Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record shops.

Elsewhere in the Top 10 there is a new entry from Connan Mockasin with his album 'Caramel' at Number Four, while Arctic Monkeys shift to Number Five with 'AM'. The deluxe reissue of David Bowie's 'The Next Day' is a new entry at Number Six, while Andre Rieu & His Johann Strauss Orchestra, James Arthur and Young Knives also have new albums in the Top 10.

Sales of albums from around 100 independent record retailers who participate in Record Store Day UK. The full Top 40 featuring every week in the new-look NME.
