Although Spoon has dominated the local charts over the past few weeks, there were no clear winners across the board for the week ending February 7. New releases from Album Leaf and Lil Wayne -- his ill advised rock album -- who begins serving his one year jail sentence today and Vampire Weekend's Contra topped last week's charts, while Midlake's Courage of Others and Rob Zombie's Hellbilly Deluxe 2 debuted in the top ten. See the full breakdown after the jump.
