The shortlist was revealed today for the National Mercury Music Prize, awarded annually to the top British or Irish act by music critics and other "experts."

Unsurprisingly, Amy Winehouse's Back To Black is on there, as are the latest releases by last year's winner, Arctic Monkeys, and 2003's winner, Dizzee Rascal. Here's the complete list of nominees: Arctic Monkeys - Favorite Worst Nightmare Dizzee Rascal - Maths And English The View - Hats Off To The Buskers Maps - We Can Create Bat For Lashes - Fur And Gold Klaxons - Myths Of The Near Future Jamie T - Panic Prevention The Young Knives - Voices Of Animals And Men Fionn Regan - The End Of History Basquiat Strings With Seb Rochford - Basquiat Strings Amy Winehouse - Back To Black New Young Pony Club - Fantastic Playroom
