    Congrats to singer PJ Harvey on winning Britain's prestigious Uncut Music Award 2011 for her album Let England Shake. The award is bestowed by the editors of Uncut, a music magazine.

    It's not the first major award the record has landed. Harvey notched the equally prestigious Mercury Prize in September for the war-themed record.

    Harvey snatched the award from the clutches of fellow amazing artists like Radiohead, Paul Simon, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes. So she was in good company.

    Harvey, 42, accepted the award gracefully and said, "I'm very pleased to get the Uncut Music Award 2011, and it strengthens my desire to carry on pursuing the avenues of work I have been for the last 20 years. It strengthens my conviction to always trust my instincts and to continue to do work of meaning and importance, in some way."

    Have you enjoyed Let England Shake yet?
