Corrine Bailey Rae's album is kind of soulful, kind of mellow, very pleasant. I don't think it's all that great, but there you go.

And I bought St. Elsewhere based on the strength of the many rave reviews I read, and the awesomeness of "Crazy," and I thought it wasn't very good at all, other than two or three songs.

The video for "Gone Daddy Gone" is awesome, though.

Best Alternative Music Album
(Vocal or Instrumental.)


* Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
Arctic Monkeys
[Domino Recording]

* At War With The Mystics
The Flaming Lips
[Warner Bros.]

* St. Elsewhere
Gnarls Barkley
[Downtown/Atlantic]

* Show Your Bones
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
[Interscope Records]

* The Eraser
Thom Yorke
[XL Recordings]
Four very good albums there, one overhyped piece of shit.

If Flips or Thom win, then times will be good.


It's also really funny to me to see Imogen Heap nominated for Best New Artist since she's been around for quite awhile. Regardless, I hope she wins. I saw her two weeks ago and it was a really good show. She's excellent.

Wow, this has to be the worst nominations I've seen, and that's saying a lot considering the absence of quality in previous years. Record Of The Year is hysterical, and how the FUCK did Timberlake get nominated for Album Of The Year?

Hm...

That Natasha Bedingfield song in the pop category is two years old.

Nice to see Goldfrapp, Zero 7 and Pet Shop Boys get nods in the dance category.

But otherwise the Grammys have always been rubbish affairs.

And I wouldn't say that that Thom Yorke album was all that overhyped either.

By making a quality album.

And no, you are not allowed to refute that based on the fact that you hate the entire genre to begin with.

I hope U2 loses both the nominations.

You're kidding, right? I remember when I had the misfortune to catch Timberlake's lead single on the radio: I just burst out laughing at how horrific it was. His singing's bloody dreadful. I can't believe he's successful.
