The Album of the Year nominees at this year's Grammys are:
"El Camino" - The Black Keys
"Some Nights" - Fun
"Babel" - Mumford & Sons
"Channel Orange" - Frank Ocean
"Blunderbuss" - Jack White
The Black Keys and Jack White represent the Rock Field, Fun. is from Pop, Frank Ocean is R&B and Mumford & Sons cover the American Roots Field.
The Black Keys and Jack White discs are competing for Best Rock Album; both may lose to Bruce Springsteen’s “Wrecking Ball.”
Despite six nominations, Ocean missed out on important bids in the R&B Field -- Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song. Song of the Year nominee Miguel is the frontrunner in those races and may sweep the R&B field.
Fun is likely to win Best Pop Vocal Album but faces stiff competition from 2004 Best New Artist winner Maroon 5 who contend with "Overexposed."
Mumford & Sons are most likely to win in their genre, taking Best Americana Album. And they have been slowly moving up the pyramid of the General Field, nominated in 2010 for Best New Artist and in 2011 for Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “The Cave."
I think “Babel” will win Album of the Year.
