    At this point I don’t even think St. Vincen is getting nommed. Her album is crap and she went into the deep-end and too referential, and offered nothing original. Daddy’s Home doesn’t hold a candle to either self-titled or Masseduction.

    I don’t really care much for the album outside of a few songs and don’t think it’s on the level of her previous two works. But it’s unlikely she gets snubbed. The competition for slots is not that sturdy this year. The album still got a fair amount of acclaim. And her last couple albums each won a Grammy.

    You might be right but I think it would be good for the Grammys to not just namecheck but actually listen to the work. I was pretty disappointed with Daddy’s Home. I’ve tried MANY times to get into it and I was pretty much addicted to St.
    Vincent/Masseduction. Shame.

    Most likely she gets a raincheck. This is how the Grammys work, she got ignored by the Grammys when she released Strange Mercy, which many people still consider her best, but now she’s appears to be an established favourite in her genre.

    Yeah, it sucks. She deserved more love for Strange Mercy FOR SURE and “Cruel” was a fantastic rock song.

    She was still too much of an unknown and on the fringes to get nominations for Strange Mercy. Plus, bands were dominating the Alternative/Rock nominations at that time. So, I don’t think voters care about making up for that. Her self-titled album and Love This Giant is really where the attention and critical acclaim blew up. Working with someone as groundbreaking and respected as David Byrne really set her up for more attention and broader appeal. But yes, as long as the competition isn’t too stiff and the album is at least decently received then she’s gonna be a player in the Alternative/Rock categories. And there are folks who really love the album. Not me of course.

    Can Wolf Alice get across the board nominations? Was their last nomination just a committee pick?

    oh my god i disagree… even tho maybe daddy’s home will not take album, i think pay your way in pain, melting of the sun, down are very strong contenders for song and performance categories. I think she should submit down for performance and melting of the sun for song

    Her album with David Byrne is probably the worst received of her career, tied at 76 in reception with her debut Marry Me. The rest have all received 80+ average rating scores per AlbumOfTheYear, so I’m not exactly sure where you’re pulling all this from. Besides, it’s not like the Grammys haven’t ever awarded lesser-known acts throughout their history-

    Strange Mercy was her first album to get any real buzz and first to appear in a decent amount of best of lists. Her first two albums barely even charted and didn’t get much attention from the press outside of the initial reviews. Love This Giant appeared in a lot of best-of lists. While she got a lot of press for working with David Byrne and broadened her name rec, especially with old heads who might have been unfamiliar with her previous work. And then her self-titled album was widely acclaimed, got a decent amount of press coverage outside of initial reviews, made a decent impression on social media and was easily her best selling work up until then.

    The point is that I don’t think she’s a safe bet because voters are trying to make up for snubbing her Strange Mercy.

    James Blake could replace Clairo or Julien Baker, but I’m not counting on Big Red Machine unless it’s highly acclaimed and undeniable.

    Ye I would agree with Jay, James Blake so long as its successful and it gets campaigned in that category I could easily see a nomination, sometimes hard to tell with him since he has done other genres.

    As for Big Red Machine, their first album got acceptable reviews but wasn’t particularly successful commercially, this would have to be a home run I think for this to happen.

    Updated predictions

    Best Alternative Album

    1. Daddy’s Home-St. Vincent
    2. Jamie (reimagined)-Brittany Howard
    3. Blue Weekend-Wolf Alice
    4. Sling-Clairo
    5. Home Video-Lucy Dacus
    6. (Friends That Break Your Heart-James Blake)

    Would love if this ends up being an all female lineup (I know there’s some men in Wolf Alice, but it’s led by a woman). St. Vincent is the clear frontrunner but I could see Brittany upsetting.

    Best Rock Album

    1. Medicine At Midnight-Foo Fighters
    2. Letter To You-Bruce Springsteen
    3. Teatro d’ira-Vol. 1-Måneskin
    4. Sob Rock-John Mayer
    5. Pressure Machine-The Killers

    Best Rock Performance

    1. Waiting On A War-Foo Fighters
    2. Letter To You-Bruce Springsteen
    3. Pay Your Way In Pain-St. Vincent
    4. History Repeats-Brittany Howard & Georgia Anne Muldrow
    5. I Wanna Be Your Slave-Måneskin
    6. (Last Train Home-John Mayer)

    Best Rock Song

    1. Waiting On A War-Foo Fighters
    2. Letter To You-Bruce Springsteen
    3. Pay Your Way In Pain-St. Vincent
    4. I Wanna Be Your Slave-Måneskin
    5. Last Train Home-John Mayer
    6. (Smile-Wolf Alice)

    It feels pretty obvious that the Foo Fighters will sweep rock.

    It seems that there is differing opinions on which Foo Fighters song will be recognised between Shame Shame and Waiting on a War.
