There is an award in the United Kingdom called the Mercury Prize. For the last 20 years it has been awarded annually to the best album to come from the UK, and for the last 20 years it's been pretty much spot on. Elbow has won it, The xx has won it, Portishead and PJ Harvey. Lusty company. In 2012, Alt-J have won it for their brilliant genre-defying debut, An Awesome Wave.
Some resent the 'new Radiohead' tag that the band has acquired, and find it hard to believe (or even stand) the hype. Others even claim pretention at the heart of the band's motives. In the critiquing community, pretention is akin to polygamy. It isn't well recieved.
