Who Is The Front Runner For Album Of The Year, Part Deux?

Back in May I gave my half year assessment as to the front runner for album of the year, remember?! It is now September, so I felt it appropriate to outline the new contenders that have entered the race. Alot has happened since May I think it’s fair to say, so here we go.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

 

Bon Iver – Bon Iver

 

Shine 2009 – Realism

 

Neon Indian – Era Extrana
