Mercury Prize on Spotify (2011 Shortlisted + historical playlists)

Bookmakers say it will be a female fight, with Adele and PJ Harvey being the great favourites for winning 2011 Mercury Prize (the music-lovers approved alternative to Brit Awards for best UK and Irish albums of the year). The shortlist include 12 albums, and I built a couple of Spotify playlists on it. The mammoth one is for you avid 21st century listeners who want to have a complete collection of full albums. The lite one (three tracks each album) is for you busy 21st century listeners who wanna get a general idea of the music of the shortlist, but don't have nine hours free to get it.

The other playlists come from the past (from 500 Spotirama playlists ago!) and require many many many hours more. One is about Mercury Prize 2010 (won by The XX), one is made with winning albums since 1992 to 2010 (I will update it when the 2011 winner will be announced), two are made with shortlisted albums since 1992 to 2011 (one full, one lite) and the final one is made with my personal 69 favorite songs since 1992 to 2010 (amongst shortlisted and winning albums). I just checked and updated them! Mercurialy enjoy!
