Last weekend’s Sunday Times magazine had an article on the Choice Music Prize that I couldn’t help but think was both a little snide in tone and missing the point. Every year, it seems like a certain pocket of the media thinks that there’s some kind of agenda behind the judging process – that the nominated albums have been chosen for reasons related more to diplomacy than merit, or that the winner should be chosen solely on the basis that it’ll do well in other territories. This year, the fact that the list is apparently more ‘mainstream’ is compensating for the fact that the Meteor Awards aren’t taking place this year. Gimme a break!
