Florence and the Machine – Lungssh*t. I really can't stand her.Kasabian – West Ryder Pauper Lunatic AsylumI used to hate these guys, but I saw them last year & they were thoroughly entertaining, I've developed a bit of a soft spot for them. Not heard this album yet though.Bat for Lashes – Two SunsStunning record. Definitely in my top 10 of the year. Should win, but probably won't.La Roux – La RouxLiked the first single, not feeling the second. Doesn't bode well for the album.Glasvegas – GlasvegasThe singer's a complete c*nt, but their songs are so catchy. Also, he supports Celtic, so I can't really be mad at him.Speech Debelle – Speech TherapyKeep hearing she's really good, but I'm yet to investigate. She's basically on the shortlist as the token black artist though, Mercury do it every year.Friendly Fires – Friendly FiresSaw them once and they were pretty fun, but I haven't really been into the records I've heard by them since.The Horrors – Primary ColoursPosh wankers.Lisa Hannigan – Sea SewNever heard of her.The Invisible – The InvisibleNever heard of them.Led Bib – Sensible ShoesNever heard of it.Sweet Billy Pilgrim – Twice Born MenNever heard of him.Conclusion: Bat For Lashes should win, but Florence & The Machine or Glasvegas will get it.

Hope Florence & The Machine or Friendly Fires win.The Horrors could definitely win it, it received surprisingly positive press.

Rarely do they pick the obvious ones, saying that I'd like Kasabian to win but Florance and The Machines might take this one.

Is it me or is bat for lashes always nominated for a mercury music prize. I feel like this awards ceremony has lost its prestige now.

What's wrong with The Horrors?Fantastic debut album with a incredible unique production styleSecond was great as well, proves they have a lot of quality to them and they aren't one trick pony's which is a lot more than you can say for most bands in the list.
