I voted for you guys!! Incrociamo le dita! (let's cross our fingers!).

There was a right mix of albums in there- I think it would be a more interesting poll if they broke it down into decades. Not sure anyone will ever stand a chance in any poll which features The Beatles, but still. Let's go as high as we can!

Fabulous Album! They so deserve to win! All the concerts I’ve been to were amazing, but if I had to choose my favourite it has to be Paris. Just been lucky enough to see them this year in New York and can’t believe it’s coming up for a year since Bexhill (circle seat) and Rough Trade East (Record Store day). 02 London seriously lucky with our seats as right by catwalk. I’ve been told I have the traits of Mel from Flight of the Conchords (Kiwi tv comedy very funny) when I watch live. Good luck and hope you win! The vacantly staring one of many! xxx

I've already voted =) Of course, Hopes and fears album is a great masterpiece, I never get tired of listen to songs like Somewhere only we know, Everybody's changing or Bedshaped, they must have some kind of drug bcoz they're all so good, haha. Unless your second album is the best to me so far, Hopes and fears is so special for being the first, for including songs so brilliant and all good, and for being the step that allow me to know your music. As I always say, thanks for giving us such wonderful songs. By the way, I've bought the tickets for the Santander festival music!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you very much for coming again to Spain, I can't believe that I'll see you again in concert, you're so nice to come back to the countries of the tour. I love you so much, guys. Petons i una forta abraçada des de Noruega.
