Well, those Brits have their own thing going on music-wise sometimes (Robbie Williams!?) but at least it's a much more interesting roster than the MTV/VH1 awards we've got. I don't know quite a few of these but think the Burial album is esp. excellent and the Plant/Krauss is great, if a bit boring. They announce the winner in the next week or so I think.

The 2008 albums of the year are:

* Adele - 19
* British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?
* Burial - Untrue
* Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid
* Estelle - Shine
* Laura Marling - Alas I Cannot Swim
* Neon Neon - Stainless Style
* Portico Quartet - Knee-Deep in the North Sea
* Rachel Unthank & The Winterset - The Bairns
* Radiohead - In Rainbows
* Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Raising Sand
* The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age of the Understatement

Maybe Mike will stop by and weigh in on some of these that we may not be familiar with on this side of the pond.
