If Alasdair was in charge of the Mercury Music Prize Shortlist

July 23, 2008

Well, yet again, another largely rubbish shortlist (with the exception of In Rainbows). Not that I really care, but it was in the news and gives me something to write about). So, here’s my list of the best British albums of the past year:

(in no particular order)

Portishead – Third

Radiohead – In Rainbows

Róisín Murphy – Overpowered

Richard Thompson – Sweet Warrior

Porcupine Tree – Fear the Blank Planet

Richard Thompson – Sweet Warrior

Nostalgia 77 – Everything Under the Sun
