Adele annoys me; I really like BSP but didn't really think much to the last album; Estelle's great, though she seems to have lost the sparkle from her first album; Laura Marling is just lovely, I'd like to see her get a bit of exposure from this; In Rainbows is a terrific album and I'm quite taken with The Last Shadow Puppets album.

However, out of all of them, it'd have to be Elbow for me. I absolutely love them and, even though I don't think it quite lives up to their previous work, it's a damn fine album.
