There used to be the Shortlist Prize, but that didn't last too long. The Canadian Mercury is the Polaris Prize, and that tends to be much more interesting than the Mercury lately

The Juno isn't the Canadian Mercury though, it's the Canadian Brits/Grammys (and the Brits/Grammys are awful)

I do like Wolf Alice, but I think they can make a better album than Visions of a Life, and I would have preferred Nadine Shah (who probably scuttled her chances when she slated the prize) or Everything Everything to win. I predicted Wolf Alice would win though, most of the time the Mercury goes for an act on its first/second album, and in the last few years it's become really London-centric - six winners this decade from London, including four of the last five

Wasn't Robert Lopez younger than John Legend when he achieved EGOT status?

#1 album of all-time in the US, right? Am I right in thinking that Thriller is still the biggest seller worldwide?

The last three definitely won't happen in 2018. Chromatics probably won't either. Of the remainder only Vampire Weekend, Chance and Anderson have a chance. And there's a decent chance none of those will be out this year either.

I find it quite funny that with these five albums done, that Kanye's own one has had the worst reception (OK, maybe second worst, but certainly Ye and Nasir are below the others) and was the most half-arsed. He's a madman, but you certainly can't accuse him of being selfish, he's done the best work for others here!

Fair enough but let's not kid ourselves that this sort of thing gets applied consistently. Hell, if I applied this consistently, I'd never listen to e.g. The Beatles or James Brown or Miles Davis or Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground again (and there's a gazillion more lauded music acts where that came from)

Looking forward to the new Gruff Rhys, I've given hope of another SFA album, but his solo stuff has been pretty great and helps to fill the void. Not sure about what I've heard from the new Lykke Li yet (bar Utopia, which is great), but I Never Learn was my favourite album of 2014 so I'll still be getting it for sure.

Mosquito is their weakest album, but I'd definitely have Sacrilege in my top 10.

Waiting for Kanye to do some Twitter thread on his new obsession with the number 7 (if he hasn't already) - or maybe he just watched an episode of Sesame Street where it was the number of the day and got fixated on it

They've given out one 10.0 in the last 15 years. If Kendrick Lamar didn't get one yet, it suggests 10.0 is not happening any time soon.
