Best dance/electronic album
"Migration," Bonobo
"3-D The Catalogue," Kraftwerk
"Mura Masa," Mura Masa
"A Moment Apart," Odesza
"What Now," Sylvan Esso
no idea, no idea

I'd say Kraftwerk would win it on account of them never winning this award before, but Bonobo deserves it.

My pick would be Sylvan Esso. That album is great.
I couldn't tell you about a single moment on Migration after listening to it twice through.

Is it a new Kraftwerk album? Or another best of?

A compilation of best, yes.
Hi Kevin!

Hmmmm. I'm not sure I agree with a compilation being nominated. I mean, sure, Singles 93-03 is all gold but it was a collection of previously released (for the most part) material.

I've just seen that it's a live album, which is a little different, but it's also 8 discs!!! I mean, sure, if the prize is for the most content. And chances are with 69 tracks, you're likely to have 'an albums worth' of good stuff on it. But I still don't see it being a fair contender.

I'm not nocking Kraftwerk. Tour De France is a big favourite of mine. But THAT should have been nominated back in 2003.

In my humble opinion.

^ IMO, them receiving this award would be the equivalent of them receiving a lifetime achievement Grammy. Which would be appropriate, but they literally won one 3 years ago, which is why I kinda don't see it happening.

Correct. Winner.

And Tonite by LCD Soundsystem won Best Dance recording.
