Very predictable shortlist. Jon Hopkins is my favourite by a country mile.

I have a feeling they'll go for David Bowie, but Savages should win this.

Bowie was always going to be nominated, but I think they'll go for Disclosure.

I remember how The Guardian went apeshit a couple of years ago when they wanted Bring Me the Horizon to get nominated and they got overlooked.

Oh hey, it's the most redundant UK award outside of the BRIT awards.

Jon Hopkins would win this in a perfect world. Unfortunately we live on Earth.

What, Mumford and sons weren't nominated . . . Bowie can't win because the winner of the Mercury Prize historically goes on to do nothing, and you know Bowie won't be doing nothing.
