So the 2014 Barclaycard Mercury Prize ‘Albums of the Year’ were announced last week

Anna Calvi - One Breath / Bombay Bicycle Club - So Long, See You Tomorrow / Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots / East India Youth - Total Strife Forever / FKA twigs - LP1 / GoGo Penguin - v2.0 / Jungle - Jungle / Kate Tempest - Everybody Down / Nick Mulvey - First Mind / Polar Bear - In Each and Every One / Royal Blood - Royal Blood / Young Fathers - Dead

I've got to admit that I've only really heard Jungle and Nick Mulvey properly, but I'd be happy if either picked it up. The very fact that labels have to pay to have albums nominated strikes me as restrictive and smacks of industry 'stitch up'.

Feel free to comment or suggest one's you'd have picked

I'm sure Milton Keynes' based Reporters would love to think they'd feature in a future Mercury list, but for now they'll have to settle for an appearance on here.

Give us your track reactions
