    i like the little of her i have heard. id rather friendly fires win, but i cant see that happening. i think it still means alot as bands get alot of recognition from it, that is if you disclude roni size, miss dynamite and the many others who careers have failed from it. buuuuut didnt elbow have a good year last year? :p

    I'm not convinced the best artist always wins this - they seem to pick the most obscure so they can appear really cutting edge.

    Weren't Friendly Fires, Flo or Kasabian better?

    I hate Mumford & Sons seriously is this the 70's do we really need another English folk revival? Sweaty, ugly, Vom.

    Corinne Bailey Rae is meh.

    Paul Weller? WTF? Isn't he dead yet?

    Dizzee Rascal- only cool if your 40 and have just heard of him. Over.

    I am Kloot could win, despite being boring.

    I quite like The xx. I'd be happy if they won.

    Wild Beasts are alright too. Wouldn't mind if they won.

    Villagers- fey bullshit for posh students.

    The rest are non-enntities in my opinion.

    I might shock one or two people to say Biffy's album shouldnt win. It was a weak album for them. Better then most other bands still, but weak.

    Mumford and Sons are actually really cool. The album is really good, and whilst one of a number of folk pop acts about, are better than most.

    Dont like Marling. She irritates me. Like Weller, but havent heard this.

    Wonder why Noah and the Whale were not in it. First day of Spring is a really good album.

    We'll definitely not discuss Mumford & Sons :biggrin1:

    Surely you agree about Dizzee Rascal and Corinne Bailey Rae though right?

    I want The xx to win. Or Mumford (but they won't).

    Surely Weller can't be nominated EVERY year?!!!

    Dizzee's ok. Not arsed about Bailey Rae.

    Haven't heard Marling, but doesn't she go out with most of the nominees (that dude from Noah and the Whale, and now Mumfordboy)?
