Who Should Win The Mercury Music Prize?

We've been speculating about the Mercury Prize for a while now, (since Laura Snapes' blog back in May), but with the shortlist announced today (Tuesday 19 July) we thought it's time we asked you who you'd like to win.

Adele and James Blake were favourites to scoop the award a few weeks back, at 4/1 and 5/1 respectively, while previous winner PJ Harvey, who received a rare 10/10 from NME, came in at 10/1. Wild Beasts, meanwhile, proved most popular with NME.COM's commenters.
