It's hard to argue with a list like this. There's a very weak album here which I hope doesn't win. In terms of a deserved win the obvious choice is either Villagers or Cathy Davey. I'd love it if O Emperor got the nod. I hope James V McMorrow wins. Halves is another album I've enjoyed but I wouldn't hold out any hope for it. The Cast of Cheers and Adebisi Shank wont win and Two Door Cinema Club are almost too global. Imelda May has a good chance but I hope the judges don't settle on her for the win!

James Vincent McMorrow for the win! Fingers & toes crossed!
