Who’s the frontrunner here?
This one is very tricky, since there is very little support for the albums outside of this category. LCD Soundsystem and Gorillaz have the veteran thing going for them, Arcade Fire has never won this category after countless nominations here, The National and Father John are critically acclaimed sleepers…
Going with LCD Soundsystem.
I think we can’t take out Humanz and Everything Now. Both albums were met with lukewarm reception.
It’s a toss up between the remaining albums. I’d probably say the national will win this.
I’m going with LCD – acclaimed album from veterans coming back from a hiatus and that haven’t won before. It’ll also get the votes of any electronic/dance field members who feel like voting here.
