Who will win Best Rock Album?December 10, 2015 at 9:09 am #415186
This is a tough one. I’m going for the newbie, James Bay. Critical darling.December 10, 2015 at 9:56 am #415187
This category is crappy. Death Cab for Cutie and Highly Suspect don’t have a chance. Slipknot could creep in. Muse are previous winners. But, their latest effort was forgettable. James Bay has the most nominations, including BNA. So, he edges out the win.
SHOULD WIN: James Bay, Chaos and The Calm
WILL WIN: James Bay, Chaos and The CalmDecember 11, 2015 at 12:34 pm #415188
James BayDecember 11, 2015 at 10:17 pm #415189
I believe James Bay will take it.December 12, 2015 at 9:27 am #415190
Death Cab. They keep nominating them. They clearly like them. They’re overdue at this point.December 12, 2015 at 11:51 am #415191
I think people are overestimating James Bay. He barely made an impression in the U.S., which is important to win Grammys. The critics liked Drones more than Kintsungi, so I’ll have to go with Muse for the win.December 14, 2015 at 12:31 pm #415192
I think Death Cab for Cutie might actually take this. It was their “final” album, and the Grammy voters LOVE them some Death Cab.
Truly Grammy darlings.January 2, 2016 at 9:47 pm #415193
I really do not want Muse to win. I like them but the thought of them at the after party with Bieber comparing grammys or taking award pictures with him is unbearable.January 3, 2016 at 8:29 am #415195
I doubt James Bay will win this one. The last “debut” to win this category was Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill in 1996. It is really hard to predict a winner without an AOTY nomination, or the presence of some ‘veteran’.
To me, Muse’s Drones is the most likely choice. It was considered one of the best albums of the year. They are the only previous winners in this category. The producer, Robert John Mutt Lange, is a multiple-GRAMMY winner.January 4, 2016 at 4:08 pm #415196

I’m just curious if the band members even like him. It’s just a terrible year imo to win an award because of his nomination and probable win. I’m talking about all the winners taking shots with other winners and showing off their grammys and all.
