As while bookmakers are good at predicting the 2:30 at Ascot they are rubbish at predicting twisted evil thoughts that inside music critics’ heads.

5:1 Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I”m Not
5:1 Thom Yorke – The Eraser
6:1 Muse – Black Holes And Revelations
6:1 Guillemots – Through The Windowpane
6:1 Editors – The Back Room
8:1 Richard Hawley – Coles Corner
8:1 Sway – This Is My Demo (obligatory urban act)
8:1 Hot Chip – The Warning
10:1 Lou Rhodes – Beloved One (obligatory avant garde act no.2)
10:1 Scritti Politti – White Bread Black Beer
10:1 Zoe Rahman – Melting Pot (obligatory avant garde act no.1)
