, Grammy Awards 2012 - Album of the Year
Mumford and Sons are tied with multiple artists for the most nominations (six) at this year's Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year rivals the Black Keys, Frank Ocean, and Fun..
However, the British folk quartet is our experts' pick to win for their sophomore album, "Babel."
Seven out of nine experts are forecasting a win for "Babel": Leah Greenblatt (Entertainment Weekly), Edna Gundersen (USA Today), Shirley Halperin (Hollywood Reporter), Lyndsey Parker (Yahoo! Music), Chris Willman, and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil and Paul Sheehan.
Two experts disagree, both picking the Black Keys' critically acclaimed hit "El Camino": Phil Gallo (Billboard) and Glenn Gamboa (Newsday).
None of them are picking Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange," Fun's "Some Nights," or Jack White's "Blunderbuss."
All are first-time nominees in this category except for White, who was nominated in 2003 for "Elephant" as half of the alt rock duo the White Stripes.
