The Top TenXW

1Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends - Coldplay (2009)

In my view, this could be the best album ever made. - keyson

2American Idiot - Green Day (2005)

This iconic album containing American Idiot, Jesus of Suburbia, Holiday, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, St. Jimmy and Wake Me Up When September Ends among other brilliant songs didn't win. It's a deception, at least. - keyson

I'm surprised that this album didn't win. "Wake me Up When September Ends" Actully got me into Green Day and is the first song I cried to. And this album of course, should of won. - Mumbizz01

3X - Ed Sheeran (2015)

A fantastic album that had all chances of winning, but didn't. - keyson

So surprised and disappointed Ed didn't win. What a fantastic talent he has. Ah well... He's still a winner in my eyes.
Lovely list, Martin :) I love you! - Britgirl
