I like the Elbow album (well, the majority of it), but it isn't all that innovative or different (but then, neither was the rest of the list), which I always thought the Mercurys tried to celebrate. Discuss.

I think the Mercury's have a reputation for celebrating innovation, yet have never awarded the prize to anything especially innovative (except M People of course)

What the Mercury Award has done is introduced me to some stuff I would never usually have listened to. Seth Lakeman for instance. How else would I have got to hear about a Cornish folk singer/fiddle player
