Following Thursday's reveal of this year's Mercury Prize nominees, Twitter has been alight with opinion as #MercuryPrize sat at the top of the trending list for a long while.
This year's nominees include artists as varied as David Bowie, The 1975, Bat For Lashes, Skepta and Michael Kiwanuka, among others.
And it seems that most music fans are thrilled with the line-up, with it being dubbed "diverse", and others pleased that this year there are two grime artists in the mix: Kano and Skepta.
Other notable mentions include previous winner Anohni, who won the prize back in 2005 with her album I Am Bird Now while under the name Antony and the Johnsons.
Glad to see Kano and Skepta representing grime on the shortlist #MercuryPrize

Stoked to see Kano in the #MercuryPrize and genuinely surprised 2 grime albums are there. The genre is moving up

A great year for mainstream Grime, and Anohni's 'Hopelessness' is fantastic, but you just can't look past Radiohead or Bowie. #MercuryPrize

Good to see UK rap/grime embraced by the #MercuryPrize and agree with Kano nod. But Konnichiwa, really?

Laura Mvula has received her second Mercury nomination for her sophomore album The Dreaming Room: the singer-songwriter's 2013 debut Sing To The Moon was also nominated.
The other nominees are The Comet Is Coming, Savages, Jamie Woon and Radiohead, which has become the most-nominated act in the Mercury Prize's history.
Many of the tweets shared on social media certainly range on the positive side following the announcement of the nominees.
An actually decent #MercuryPrize shortlist for once, be still my beating heart.

One of the strongest #MercuryPrize shortlists in a while. I'll be a little gutted if it doesn't go to Bowie

@laurenlaverne Good to see such a diverse lineup
Deserving for what he's done for Grime internationally

#MercuryPrize list is mostly decent this year - a few I love, a couple I wanted to investigate, and only one I hate. A pleasant surprise.
