The Montreal band Arcade Fire's ‘Funeral' is the UK critics' Album of the Year, according to HMV's unique Poll of Polls.

Each year HMV compile the Polls of Polls, taken from 22 individual end-of-year lists published in national music magazines, newspapers, listings guides and, for the first time this year, radio. In an extremely close battle, The Arcade Fire's phenomenal debut album just edges out Gorillaz' huge hit, ‘Demon Days'. Last year's Poll of Polls' winner, hip-hop star Kanye West, comes in a very credible third with his 2005 release, ‘Late Registration'.
