We've got halfway through the number one albums of 1993 and have come across this beast which was at the top spot for seven weeks that summer. Is that because it's totally amazing and the British public were right to keep on buying it? Or is it because they did an Elvis cover that was lightweight enough to get on the radio constantly? It's a mystery.

Thankfully alongside having to discuss this record we get to talk about other acts such as Clutch, Cypress Hill and, er, Snow.

We'd also like to take the opportunity to plug some of our previous podcast guests who have new podcasts out themselves at the minute: Sean Mcloughlin who joined us for our ABBA special has a new one up and running with fellow comedian Jonny Pelham called Failing Better and their guest on the current episode is Ed Gamble; and Rob Mulholland who joined us for our Hip Hop in 1991 special is going great guns with his new podcast Dead Men Talking alongside co-host Freddy Quinne (warning - this one is not for the easily offended). So do go and check them out if they sound up your street.
