Snow Patrol Final Straw

Joss Stone The Soul Sessions

The Streets A Grand Dont Come For Free

I would put my money on the Zutons. Great album and not the bookmakers favourite (12-1 to win the award).

the mercury music prize reassuringly remains the most pointless exercise on the music business calender.

if its a popular choice, then it has to be Franz Ferdinand

if its a "future projection" bollox, it'll be keane

if it's a "they deserve it, after all these years" it'll be B&S

if it's an "urban nod", it'll obviously be TY

if it's one for yer mum, it'll be Joss Stone.

I'd like snow patrol to win...just cos my wife would beat me up if I didn;t....he he

I'd like to see Basement Jaxx or Ty win it this year.

Does indeed still remain a pretty pointless exercise though...

I hope Popcorn Fiend gets it. Now there's an act that deserves some fucking recognition.

Popcorn Fiend have been excluded from all music awards.

I reckon Keane will get it unfortunately.

I really hope not. Their music is very boring and the singers voice goes through my head.
