5.0 out of 5 stars Take a Break from Winter - It's Grammy Time! January 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 2014 version of the Grammy Nominees is a solid album. There are a lot of stand-out songs in this collection. "Brave," for example, is brilliant, and it has a powerful social message, too. This year's collection includes some selections that are edgier and riskier than songs included in previous collections. With great risks, the highs can be higher than normal ("Just Give Me a Reason"), but the lows can be lower than normal ("Retrograde").

The songs selected for this CD seemed to represent the different types of music more equally this year than has been the case in the past; previous collections have been more heavily weighted towards the pop charts than those selected this year. The collection also included multiple examples of blended genres ("Highway Don't Care" - country, pop and classic rock, for example), following a growing trend in the music industry.

A short overview of each song follows.

"Locked Out of Heaven," has a 1980's style introduction, and segues into a more modern dance song though the use of sound effects. The song is full of sexual innuendo, and some people (but not me) may consider the lyrics sacrilegious. ***WINNER - Best Pop Album, "Unorthodox Jukebox"***

"Blurred Lines," blends reggae with a 1970's disco beat and current day lingo, and then throws in some rap for good measure. The topic covered here is sexual fantasies about a good girl. The more explicit aspects of the lyrics have been glossed over, giving this song a bit of a blurry effect.

In "Royals," the singers reject the materialism of everyday society. They ( aren't into money or status symbols, and the music cleverly reflects that message. It's very creative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Grammy Nominees CD January 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love the 2014 Grammy Nominees CD. I buy the Grammy Nominees CD every year and this CD does not disappoint with 18 of the best selling songs of the year. I also like the fact that I can AutoRip this CD. This means that I can play or download the MP3 version of the album for free. What a great deal. I highly recommend this album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wish it had other nominees January 25, 2014
By A. Lee
Format:Audio CD
Instead of just the mainstream top-40 music that's been nominated, it would be awesome if they included other nominees on the album (Vampire Weekend, The National, etc). If the Grammys are about celebrating music, then why just pay attention to the stuff everyone knows already and give a little credit to great bands and artists that aren't as well known?

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed most of the songs on this disc. January 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD
My favorite track is "Same Love" by Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis. This is the first rap song that touches me. This song is about having acceptance of every person regardless of their sexual orientation. This is the strongest lyrical resonant song on the disc. "Brave" by Sara Bareilles is another song that speaks to me lyrically. This song makes me feel strong and to be afraid to say what I feel. I am a big fan of Pink. "Just Give Me A Reason" is a great pop duet. I never thought I would like a song by Justin Timberlake. I must confess that "Mirrors" is a song that has grown on me in the last year. I like this song very much.

I am not a big country fan, but I must confess that I like every country song on here. "Merry Go Round" features superb banjo playing. This is the happiest song about dysfunctional lives I have ever heard. Jason Aldean proves that country tunes can be simple subjects like taking a pretty girl out for a ride in a truck. "Take A Little Ride" is a country song that really rocks. Taylor Swift proves that she is a talent as a solo artist with the pretty song "Begin Again". She also teams up on a touching duet entitled "Highway Don't Care". Blake Shelton has the kind of voice that touches me on the song "Mine Would Be You". I like this romantically sensitive country song.

This disc also contains great dance jams like "Locked Out Of Heaven", "Blurred Lines" and "Get Lucky". I'm sure I would hear these three tunes the next time I am in a club or at a party. I could not get into the song "Radioactive" lyrically, but I think it has a good beat to it. I couldn't get into the song "Swimming Pools". This song just turned me off lyrically with the use of the N word. "Lego House" is another song that did not appeal to me.

It really bothers me that the songs are not at the proper speed. The music seems to drag so slow, not at the right upbeat speed/

5.0 out of 5 stars Loooveee it.... January 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My 10 year old daughter and I have been rocking this CD everyday since receiving it. All the songs we like and best of all they are kid friendly. It's a nice mixture of several genres.

Love it. Love it. Love it!

We do this every year. It collects good, popular music in one CDC. It is much more efficient than trying to collect them from separate CDs.

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked part of the artists but not all.
I think it was probably consistent with the artists who were Grammy Nominees but I was a little disappointed because I would have preferred more soft rock type music.
