After nearly a week of voting, we're proud to announce that Mastersystem are the winners of our alternative to the Mercury Prize, the Neptune Award. The band garnered 28% of the vote, beating Hannah Peel (16%) and Manic Street Preachers (13%) to the top spot.
As ever though, the point of the Neptune is not simply to pick a winner - worthy though Mastersystem are - but to shine a light on a whole range of albums and artists that we believe deserve wider recognition. If you haven't yet listened to all 20, dig in - each is unique and special in their own way, and hopefully you'll find something you love that you might not have come across otherwise.
