Below are 2013's nominations for the Mercury Prize.
Some great titles in there (lets not bang on about all the superb albums that are absent) in particular Jon Hopkins astonishing "Immunity", David Bowie's "The Next Day", Savages' "Silence Yourself" and Arctic Monkeys' "AM" (of which we're becoming more and more taken with as the weeks go by).
