I don't think it needs controversy to be less boring. There was a good interview on Drowned in Sound with the guy who used to produce the Brit Awards show where he was lamenting how safe and...

I'm not sure it's really improved very much by artists acting in that way. It makes me laugh when artists such as the Gallaghers/Oasis etc. act all anti-establishment like they're too cool to be...

All quite predictable. Probably the only surprise is the token nomination for John Grant. Although the love for Bastille and no nominations for Foals is a little surprising I suppose. The lack of...

The most predictable shortlist ever. Have to agree with others that this poll has become far too samey in recent years. It's never really been very significant anyway but it would still be nice to...

They're not really great thinkers though are they?...and their subject range seems quite narrow :D.

Or maybe the ones that don't really have anything interesting or meaningful to say? But yes, I was thinking the same thing....most female artists don't 'strip off' but the ones that do tend to get a...

Not really because I'm going by the general consensus rather than solely your or my opinion. Somehow I doubt it would have been so well received if things had 'gone awry'.

Yeah I wouldn't expect too much. The progression I would like to see is more in the songwriting than the sound/production.

I disagree with that. All of the acclaim and awards for 'Let England Shake' shows that keeping things relatively simple can be very effective and her vocals are fine still. I would say the rawness...

Maybe 25 as that's what she is now and not far off 26. Although I doubt she will continue with that as she gets older :D.

She won't sell as much as 21 but will probably have the best selling album...

Sam Smith has won the Brits critics choice award so he'll probably be everywhere. The other two artists shortlisted were Ella Eyre and Chloe Howl so they'll probably be promoted quite heavily too.

I get the feeling that George Ezra could do really well. I can see him appealing to a lot of people with the right type of songs.

Laura's shouldn't be too far away as she was taking about recording it before Xmas. That probably didn't happen and things could change but I'd expect it sooner rather than later.

My experience of those speakers (Logitech S120) is not good. Sound is OK but they started making popping noises and the volume knob kept falling off. This was with light use. If you want a pair...

So I guess you're saying that it's not possible to measure the 'quality' of a year's music since no one can listen to all the music released in a year? Or that you can't measure music 'quality'...

Why could she not appeal to older listeners? With the right kind of music she could appeal to the radio 2 crowd no problem.

She'll fail because the record company probably won't make the effort...
