Katie Kim should win this.

All of the twins will probably win though
admittedly I have only heard katie kim's album from that list but its really great, hope she gets it. each albums she has released tops her previous one i reckon. loved Cover and Flood (that what it called?) but Salt is spot on. maybe down to the length of Salt, Cover and Flood was a bit too long o thought. no filler at all in Salt

I've only heard ALL TVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVWWWWWWVVVVVins and Katie Kim off this and have to admit neither did loads for me.

I look forward to the paranoid irish times articles about the judging panel.
