Mercury meh


So it’s Klaxons then. This year has succeeded in being one of the most underwhelming yet, not just in the choices of shortlisted albums, but in the eventual winners being the most uninspired verdict in years. Honestly, of all the potential winners, the only ones I’d have liked less to see winning were The View. Oh, well, at least Amy turned up.

The point of this post, as well as to whinge, is to do something that I meant to do when the shortlist was announced a couple of months back. Here are my 12-album preferences of British artists over the last Mercury year.

Jeremy Warmsley – The Art of Fiction
Amy Winehouse – Back to Black
Barbarossa – Chemical Campfires
James Yorkston – Year of the Leopard
Electrelane – No Shouts, No Calls
Alastair Roberts – The Amber Gatherers
Various Production – The World is Gone
The Early Years – The Early Years
The Aliens – Astronomy for Dogs
Fireworks Night – As Fools We Are
Lucky Soul – The Great Unwanted
Jarvis – Jarvis

And the winner in my panel of one? A toss-up between Warmsley and Winehouse, I think…

Not sure about your winner, but a far worthier shortlist. And I definitely agree that the only ones further down my list were the View.
