CD Packaging: What Do You Think of the 2010 Grammy Nominees?


To be honest, I’m not too ecstatic to find out the winners for the 2010 Grammy Awards …particularly in the album cover category. If I were to describe the nominees in a word it would be… UNEXCEPTIONAL. Last year, I had a tough time choosing only one winner because the 2009 Grammy nominees were all so awesome. But for this year…ho-hum.

Do check em out and tell me your bets.
