This year’s nominations for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize have been announced.

The twelve albums in the ‘2010 Album of the Year’ category are as follows:

Biffy Clyro – ‘Only Revolutions’
Villagers – ‘Becoming A Jackal’
Corinne Bailey Rae –  ‘The Sea’
Mumford & Sons – ‘Sigh No More’
Paul Weller – ‘Wake Up The Nation’
Wild Beasts – ‘Two Dancers’
Kit Downes Trio – ‘Golden’
Laura Marling – ‘I Speak Because I Can’
Dizzee Rascal – ‘Tongue N’ Cheek’
Foals – ‘Total Life Forever’
I Am Kloot – ‘Sky At Night’
The xx – ‘xx’

The winner will be announced at the award show that is taking place on Tuesday 7 September, for me it’s a tough call between The xx and Mumford and Sons. Both have produced albums this year which are truely outstanding and I am glad they have received recognition they deserve for them.
