Glad I’m not making this decision….I think Wilco or Arcade Fire takes the prize.

Today fifty-four albums were announced as the nominees for the 2007 Shortlist Music Prize, which will be handed out early next year. The prize is for albums released between January and November 2007 that have yet to be certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for U.S. shipments of 500,000 units.

The Shortlist prize is a peer-selected award that recognizes the most creative and adventurous albums of the year. The 54 nominees were selected by a panel of five Listmakers: recording artists Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) and Ronnie Vannucci (the Killers), journalist Rev. Moose (CMJ), radio DJ Chris Douridas (KCRW) and the hosts of Hunnypot Internet Radio.

Among the nominees are Wilco, Feist, M.I.A., the Arcade Fire, Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Spoon, Eddie Vedder, Iron & Wine, Kings Of Leon, PJ Harvey, Stars, Underworld and Robert Pollard.
