PAZZ AND JOP PREDICTIONS?

Hey all - long time member, first time poster.

So - I threw this question up on Pop Life but I wanted to put this towards the FM clan since I'm sure most of you will be voting in the Pazz and Jop. Who's gonna chart on the Top 10? As I noted, this has less to do with your own personal favorites and more to do with guessing what the P&J consensus is going to end up with.

A personal shot in the dark, in vague order of ranking (but don't hold me to it)

1 & 2) Kanye West and Franz Ferdinand.
3, 4 & 5) Brian Wilson, The Streets, Loretta Lynn
6, 7 & 8) U2, TV on the Radio, Modest Mouse
9 & 10) Dizzee Rascal, Danger Mouse
 
Comments:
I'm thinking more indie-schrock. ze' arcade fire is sure-fire lurking near the top ten for all the kiddies. same goes for junior boys.
 
considering what i saw in the ilm thread and my personal assumptioned:

1. kanye west (this was not on my list and i don't like it anymore. i gave it to my 10 year old sister for christmas. probably the most overrated album of this decade)
2. the streets
3. junior boys
4. dizzee rascal
5. franz ferdinand
6. the arcade fire
7. the go team (it's okay, but come on people)
8. erland oye (i still need to hear this)
9. m.i.a & diplo
10. loretta lynn/brian wilson
 
Brian Wilson will be #2, F-Freezy at #3 or #4. I'd be shocked if TV on the Radio was any higher than #10. Don't forget that there are 1400 critics voting in the poll, and most of them are not whacked-out hardcore hipster nerds like us. I'm guessing that you're forgetting the massive love for a little band I like to call GREEN DAY, who is going to go top 10 based on their adherence to the crit-beloved format of the Who's "A Quick One While He's Away," and based on general lefty politics. No?
 
I already did the "net folks not realizing about the red states" thing in November. Unless a lot of young bloggers registered to vote this year, Brian Wilson takes the nod (if not Kanye, who will definitely be #2).
 
I will bet you that
Kanye squeaks it out this year:
one great mix CD
 
I wish I could vote for P&J if only to mention Tom Barman/dEUS. But that's not what you're asking so...

The Streets
Dizzee Rascal
Modest Mouse
Kanye West
Junior Boys
Franz Ferdinand
MIA & Diplo
Wiley maybe/hopefully
