So many good albums there. Would love to see Daughter get some big recognition.

That's not the actual shortlist though? Just the current betting market (which I guess would be a decent reflection) but yeah, shortlist is out on Wednesday..

I have no idea why you can't even find odds for Bonobo's album.

Not sure, but I'm sure there are a lot of others missing. That list is quite NME focussed. I suspect people like Jon Hopkins might get on there. Don't forget the token Jazz entry too.

Although Daughter, Tom Odell and Peace would keep me happy too.

Bullet For My Valentine at 50/1? I'd put it at about 1000/1.
