5.0 out of 5 stars This is for mothers and fathers also January 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I turned 40 almost 12 years ago I realized that my taste in music had not really evolved since I was 25. I worked late hours and focused on my career and starting a family. For some reason, at that point I purchased my first Grammy CD. I really
did not like a lot of the music on the CD. But, it remained in my car. I skipped the songs that did not appeal to me.

Over the course of a month there were times when I would forget to skip a track and listen to songs that were not my preference. As I became more familiar with these songs, I began to appreciate genres that had previously not appealed to me. Among others, I came to enjoy and understand hip hop and rap, and to recognize the popular artists.

Each year since then, I have purchased the Grammy CD (and mp3 now) and I follow the same pattern of exposing myself to new music and new artists. I look forward to purchasing the CD, though from year to year the changes now are less dramatic than when I began. I also began having friends by to watch the awards show, which has been fun.

I am by no means an audiophile. However, while many of my peers hear new music as noise, I have acquired a much better appreciation of popular artists. My son's college aged friends are usually shocked that his decrepit father likes songs by eminem or TI. Maybe in 20 years my grandchildren will be the ones asking: "how does grandpa know about that?".

Even if you listen to the radio every day you probably hear a narrow range of music. This CD will broaden your perspective. It is a great anti-aging product.

There are other annual compilations, but this is the best from my perspective. I listen to other music during the year, but buying this CD each year hopefully will keep me open to enjoying new music. I would hate to become stuck again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Album Where You Know Every Song! January 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am so glad the Grammy organization decided to put together a nominees album. But, there has always been a song or three that I did not know or like. This 2011 album is perfect. Every song on here I have heard before at some point. This album is just good music. AOL Music has a New Music section where you can listen to whole albums and this is on the list right now. So if you want to hear the whole album not just 30 sec snippets, go there. But, definitely get the album because it won't be listed on there for long. A lover of music will find him or herself singing along or snapping their fingers. I even got up at one point to dance a little bit. And, I was at work. This is a keeper. It's listed for a great price which is why I will buy instead of waiting for it to be listed in the mp3 store to download it. Get this one.
