1. No Monster Club - I Feel Magic

Unprecedented back to back wins for No Monster Club, which makes it two years running having written pretty much the soundtrack to my year. It's arguably an even better album than "People are Weird", more inventive and each song bursting with more ideas than some bands manage over their whole lifetime.
