As with previous years, Xfm listeners will vote for their favourite British debut albums of the year at xfm.co.uk. These votes then create a short list of 10 albums that our panel of judges score and debate at a meeting from which we name the overall winner.

This yearís judging panel includes...

Brett Anderson (Suede)
Andy Ashton (Xfm Programme Director)
Dave Berry (Xfm)
Clint Boon (Xfm)
Tim Burgess (The Charlatans)
Ben Cardew (Music Week)
Peter Hook (Joy Division / New Order)
Dom Howard (Muse)
John Kennedy (Xfm)
John Leckie (legendary producer of Radiohead, Stone Roses, Muse, The Verve etc)
David Mogendorff (MTV)
Craig Potter (Elbow)
Shaun Ryder (Happy Mondays / Black Grape)
Frank Turner
Gary Warren (MD of Content and Talent at MAMA Group)s

...and one Xfm voter, who will be picked at random and invited to take part in the judging process.

Voting opens at 8am on Monday, January 17 and the shortlist will be announced in breakfast on Monday January 31.

Thanks :)

I'm not too bothered about Brett Anderson :p but I'd love to meet Dom, and John Leckie and a couple of the others. I've already met Dave Berry (breakfast show host) at a Biffy Clyro aftershow party.
