I hope 1999 wins even though it doesnt need a award.We all know its among the best prince albums.
Is it bad that I have never heard of the other nominated albums for this award?

Kinda like when PR was nominated for best original score at the Oscars...just checked and Google says he also won for best original musical but he only got one Oscar.

Indeed, I don't understand, not a single nomination for such a good album and such good songs like Blinding Lights? suspicious.

I just looked at some of the videos from The Weeknd's project and I was thinking that the grammies, being the conservative organization that they are, just couldn't get behind the dark, violent content?

WTF!?

How can 'record' company that threats the whole SDE thing as separate projects for each album, that cannot think about consistency, about completeness, about straight back refusal of the PR PP 'remaster', etc, etc, get nominated for this prodyct?

Are they blind? Insane? Bribed?

Nothing like the industry itself patting itself on the back to convince customers to buy, buy, buy. Awards are fantastic sales tools.

Sure, but wouldn't one expect some more scrutiny from peers than from the public?

If so, the peers fail miserably.

Good news! Both Deep Discount and Importcds currently have it in stock for $39. Importcds has it listed on ebay also, but it costs $58 on there. Maybe Amazon will get some in eventually.

Deep Discount and Importcds sold out quick. Walmart has it, but only 4 copies left. Barnes and Noble had it for most of the day, but now says "out of stock online".

This Grammy would be the icing on the cake. Plus is my ALL TIME favorite Prince(r.i.p.) allbum. It would go great in my archives. I have just the place for it.
