With news of the Mercury Prize returning to the BBC, it's as good a time as ever to reflect on the past winners. The Mercury has represented the best of British and Irish alternative music since 1992. Every year reminds us of how many amazing artists we have produced and continue to produce over the years.
Unfortunately, some great artists have since faded into obscurity since these moments of glory only to end up on a 'worst to best' list a number of years later. For the luckier few, the Mercury has awarded veteran artists a new lease of life and catalysed numerous success stories.
From Arctic Monkeys to Ms.Dynamite, Suede to Young Fathers, here is the worst to best of every Mercury Prize winning album.
