Mercury Music Prize 2007

A Listmania! list by Uncle Fidgi
 
Nationwide Mercury Prize: 2007 Album Of The Year
1.  Nationwide Mercury Prize: 2007 Album Of The Year by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "This is the sampler, with a track from each nominated album. Makes strange listening, because it jumps between different styles and genres."
3.76   Used & New from: 0.01

Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford
2.  Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford by Stanley Clarke
The list author says:
  "A stand-out jazz offering. Probably there as a token gesture, but I'd like to think it could win because it's one of the few that deserve it."
9.83   Used & New from: 1.27
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Back To Black
3.  Back To Black by Amy Winehouse
The list author says:
  "Press interest about her gets boring, and I've always thought she sounds like Eric Cartman from South Park."
6.22   Used & New from: 0.72
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (450 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Favourite Worst Nightmare
4.  Favourite Worst Nightmare by Arctic Monkeys
The list author says:
  "More of the same. While a definite cut above the bog-stnadard indie band tat, I see no reason for this to be on the list, and even less reason for it to win."
10.99   Used & New from: 0.15
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (130 customer reviews)

Fantastic Playroom
5.  Fantastic Playroom by New Young Pony Club
The list author says:
  "Putting aside that their song advertises Intel processors, this lot are good, worth being on the shortlist, but I can't see it winning."
6.99   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Fur And Gold
6.  Fur And Gold by Bat for Lashes
The list author says:
  "A true stand-out that deserves to win. Throwing together Portishead, Kate Bush, Goldfrapp and baroque era-choral music is so inspired it deserves recognition."
4.88   Used & New from: 0.17
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (55 customer reviews)

Hats Off To The Buskers
7.  Hats Off To The Buskers by The View
The list author says:
  "I really can't work out what this run-of-the-mill, decent enough, pedestrian album is doing on a list of 'albums of the year'."
9.79   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

We Can Create
8.  We Can Create by Maps
The list author says:
  "See 'The View'"
7.55   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Myths Of The Near Future
9.  Myths Of The Near Future by Klaxons
The list author says:
  "Klaxons definitely have some good tunes, and a funky sound, but they haven't stretched that talent to a full album, with some definite filler in this one."
5.48   Used & New from: 0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Panic Prevention
10.  Panic Prevention by Jamie T.
The list author says:
  "Another token gesture, to include the emerging ska/londonbeat/white-young-rap movement."
5.29   Used & New from: 1.26
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Voices Of Animals And Men
11.  Voices Of Animals And Men by Young Knives
The list author says:
  "Another stand-out for me, and while I can't see it winning, I'd really like it to."
3.05   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

The End Of History
12.  The End Of History by Fionn Regan
The list author says:
  "A decent listen, but probably only there to represent the folk quarter."
6.00   Used & New from: 1.69
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Maths and English
13.  Maths and English by Dizzee Rascal
The list author says:
  "Apart from 'Fix-up Look Sharp', I've never had interest in his music, but understand others do. He's not doing anything new, emphasising that this year's list is poor and weak."
3.99   Used & New from: 0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)
