I’m not very enthusiastic about these awards but I vote because the music gets a bit of promotion. This is how I voted:

  • Album Of The Year – The Unravelling by Knifeworld.
  • Limelight Award – It had to be Thieves Kitchen due to the fact that I’m not familiar with the other bands in the list.
  • Breakthrough – It has to be Matt Stevens this year.
  • Live Event – Steve Hackett, Genesis Revisited. Another default choice. At least the list is relevant to the whole country this year.
  • Anthem – The only song that qualifies as anthemic here is Make Some Noise by Big Big Train.
  • Band/Artist Of The Year – I voted for Fish for his tenacity and for releasing a great album under difficult conditions.
  • The Storm Thorgerson Grand Design Award – Fish gets my vote again for his A Feast Of Consequences set.
