im hoping for Maps for best album.
they did this sweet studio session
one good album on the list.
because that is a genuinely good album.
I might have to say Arctic Monkeys / Amy Winehouse, on the strength that they've got 4 good songs on each one. Which is 2 more than most of the others...
Bat For Lashes to win.
I'd like to see Fionn Regan winning it.
the regan all the way
i think Jamie T
it wont win though
Bat For Lashes win actually, even if it seems to have been around for more than a year.
They do a great version of 'Sarah' live
it's a terrible list this year.
this is a rubbish article about the contenders: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6976063.stm
Bat For Lashes both "little known" and "too obvious"?
really made me angry reading it.
They constantly rant about Amy Winehouse like there's no tomorrow, and they've basically just dismissed almost everything else on the list with the words, "too obvious" and "mediocore".
until you get to this bit:

If you want a guess though, Arctic Monkeys.
But there isn't so the Arctic Monkeys will probably get the award.
