It’s just way beautiful, way romantic, a very memorable video indeed.
Album Of The Year: Will Young - Echoes (RCA/ Sony)
Elegantly depressed… fantastic new style and direction while at the core you still find the real him. I seem can’t stop playing it, I’ve been playing this album for months, it’s grown so much on me. Each time, I found something different and wonderful in a particular song, a fine, wonderfully crafted album, that said it all. It is not an album for everyone but if you dive into it, you may get rewarded. I think this could be his best album by far…
Albums - Hornable Mentions: (in no preference order)

Artist Of The Year: Will Young
Yeah, anyone who gets the title of album of the year should get this one, it makes sense. That’s it, good work, Mr Young.
Music year 2011 in conclusion: This had been a good year of music, especially the latter half of it when it seemed there’s suddenly a rush of good works, fine and varied. Looking forward for a brand new year of good music, keep up the good work artists!!
A instant catch on me when it was first released, and it’s been there in my head, in my heart since then, it’s just I haven’t really realized that it’s always been there, until now. And now, it’s still here, maybe it will never really go away, so any song reaching this state will at least get some title like this one if not more, bravo!!

Part 2 with video of the year, album of the year and artist of the year…
Her voice is so pure and innocent, she’s very young though, but that’s still talented. These are all covers (PHTP: Cherry Ghost, S: The XX, SL: Bon Iver), but I think the magic of her is that she makes them more mainstream and accessible but still retains the genuine, raw goodness, wonderful.
