No idea why Mumford & Sons are being considered for a BRIT Award for Sigh No More when it came out in 2009 over here, but there you go. Must be because of a reissue or special edition.

It's been so long since there was a fight on this thing. Someone better get Kanye drunk at least.

This awards are over-hyped and over-rated by the British mainstream media (for example Newspaper like The Sun). It's a joke. I have no interest in these at all (unless Arcade Fire perform.)

Amen brother. The fact The National are even considered a "Breakthrough Act" this many albums later is fucking stupid.

Truth, more proof of how dumb they are.

'You've Got The Love' will be best single. How can it not?

I've genuinely not even heard a good portion of those singles. I think "You've Got The Love" should get it too, or "Pass Out".

Ellie Goulding is a bit overrated, in my opinion. Love the xx though. Hope they take home a few wins from this.
