- Delphic and Two Door Cinema Club were glaring, glaring omissions.
- I also expected Marina and the Diamonds and Jack Penate to receive nominations.
- Mumford and Sons OR Laura Marling should have been nominated, not both. as cited by this Clash article, it's a little weird that dating front people should both be in the running.
- Had I the choice to ditch one of the above two folkies, I would have swapped them with Fanfarlo.
- the xx being nominated was a given. however, considering how massive they already are, they don't need to win. let's see album #2 first. I can't believe I'm saying this b/c 6 months ago I was a massive supporter of theirs but but I'm actually bored of them now.
- Villagers / Conor O'Brien for the win!
