Hilltop HoodsDrinking From The Sun clings on to the number one slot for a second week, edging out a revitalised One Direction and the evergreen Adele.

At number four comes The Shins’ new album Port Of Morrow, leading a chunk of new entries just outside the top ten.

At 14 is the soundtrack to The Hunger Games, at 15 is the Hoodoo Gurus collection Gold Watch: 20 Golden Greats, at 16 is Miike Snow’s Happy To You, and at 18 we have McAlister Kemp’s Country Proud.

Tours help Tim McGraw’s Emotional Traffic up from 40 to 20, and Evanescence’s self-titled album back into the chart at 42.

The biggest slump of the week is Hot Chelle Rae, who plummeted from 21 to 50 in their second week.

Otherwise, the big story is that Bruno MarsDoo-Wops And Hooligans is still in the top ten – at nine – after spending a whopping 75 weeks in the chart.

On the Singles Chart, fun and Janelle Monae hold the top slot with ‘We Are Young’, Canadian Idol Carly Rae Jepsen goes even higher with ‘Call Me Maybe’, from 15 to number three, and Ed Sheeran’s ‘Lego House’ shoots up from 49 to 19.
