lol how did M-People ever win this? it was over Blur's Parklife as well wasn't it. wacko.gif

to be fair I haven't heard any of the albums in that list. Elbow had a really good single out recently. not grounds for divorce, the next one after that.

Elbow's album is pretty good, although similar to the previous one I thought. Still a very good listen.

British Sea Power's is also ok, but again, I liked their earlier stuff.

Haven't heard much from the others, but Laura Marling produces quite a nice sound, the Last Shadow Puppets are ok but don't rev my engine and I really dislike Adele.

The only one on there with any interest for me is Plant/Krauss!

Alison Kraus is a fine musician, and what more needs to be said about Mr. Plant?

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.
