agreed. Polica and Alt-j deserve to be in there. despite them not being big in the states YET, it should not take away from them having incredible albums! it should be less of a popularity contest, and more on talent.
I feel the only reason Taylor Swifts album is in there is because of popularity, not because the music is good. Just because it is played on the radio a lot doesn’t necessarily mean it is worthy of being in the top album of the year chart!
So nice to see genuine talent getting recognition, definitely deserves to be up there. Amazing album from Jessie Ware!!
