This Year's Mercury Music Prize Shortlist

This year’s shortlist is:

Basement Jaxx – ‘Kish Kash’
Belle & Sebastian – ‘Dear Catastrophe Waitress’
Franz Ferdinand – ‘Franz Ferdinand’
Jamelia – ‘Thank You’
Keane – ‘Hopes And Fears’
Snow Patrol – ‘Final Straw’
Joss Stone – ‘The Soul Sessions’
The Streets – ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’
Ty – ‘Upwards’
Amy Winehouse – ‘Frank’
Robert Wyatt – ‘Cuckooland’
The Zutons – ‘Who Killed The Zutons’

http://www.nme.com/news/109226.htm


It says in the article that bookmakers are looking to Franz and The Streets as joint favourites to win the award, with odds of 3-1. Not too surprising.

hmm

I love:
Belle & Sebastian – ‘Dear Catastrophe Waitress’
Joss Stone – ‘The Soul Sessions’
The Streets – ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’


Belle & Sebastian have been great for long enough and 'Waitress' is a wonderful album
Joss Stone has the most lovely voice I've heard the last decade
and right now my guess is that not even U2 will release a better the ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ this year


so my vote goes to The Streets

I also like basement jaxx, but i'm not familiar with that album really, and I prefer the first Streets album. Hmm...I really think I might have to go with Snow Patrol...

Franz Ferdinand is the only album on there I've heard. But I like the songs I've heard from Keane and Snow Patrol, and I know people around here speak highly of the other artists. I'm sure whoever wins will be worthy.

I grabbed their CD and listened to it on the way home from work today. Hadn't listened to it in weeks.

The question marks are inside little diamonds for me. Theyre not for you? I use Mozilla.

edited: I just checked in IE, just question marks without the surrounding diamond.

Still weird either which way.

Im not sure why.. but when I upgraded the database for the new server... it seems to have had a problem with ' and " characters.
