don't cover your mouth about the Grammys. I'd like to hear why you hate them so. Plus this is musicbanter, banter away.

Dixie Chicks won album of the year one year. Apart from 'Thriller'(which I don't like in the slightest, but giving the devil it's due, at least from a historical perspective), and Sgt. Pepper not a singular significant album has ever won 'the big one'.

hmmm what do you consider significant?

Supernatural/Santana
Speakerboxxx/The Love Below/OutKast , I would rather have had them win a grammy for Stankonia though than this one.
O Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill/Lauryn Hill
Jagged Little Pill/Alanis Morissette
No Jacket Required/Phil Collins
Toto IV/Toto
52nd Street/Billy Joel
Come Dance with Me!/Frank Sinatra
Bridge over Troubled Water/Simon & Garfunkel

you don't think all of those albums deserved it? there are winners also that deserved it but I didn't feel like posting the whole list

Not particularly. I mean ones like "O Brother, Where Art Thou" soundtrack are interesting... but seriously, are these significant achievements? I'll give say "A Bridge over Troubled Water" a nod, as well as a few others. However, even among these be good albums or not, they aren't the kind that are recognized for years, and years to come.

Ever notice a hard rock, jazz, blues, or any genre like that winning the 'album of the year'? No Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, etc. There is an obvious bias for vocal/studio based music over instrumental music(which sort of pigeonholes them in lesser categories). IE. Grammies is more for the producers than it is for the musicians themselves.

Besides there's a lot of crap ones that won. Especially later on there's ones that seem like they're picked simply for name value: "Unplugged - Eric Clapton", "Raising Sand - Robert Plant and Alison Krauss", etc.

Besides, why are all the Ray Charles, Robert Plant, Bob Dylan, U2, etc. winning post 1990s well past their primes? Feels like a lot of "Yeah, we didn't get around to you the first time so we're going to undercut everything new and interesting to give you a reward now" going on.

Yeah i agree with you, They tend to say, hey we think you deserved this but didn't get around to giving it to you during your hay day so now that you have something new, we will give it to you and shun the newcomers that year.

Think he's a real talent, loving all his music. Shame about the drugs though. Let himself down there.

yeah I'm really liking Bruno and the rest of his production team. The are writing/producing some great hits.

The Smeezingtons

this is a little more info about them from their wiki page

Quote:
The Smeezingtons is the name of a production and writing trio consisting of Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine.

They have produced and written songs for artists and groups such as Sugababes, Travie McCoy, B.o.B, Justin Bieber, Brandy Norwood, K'naan, Flo Rida, Chad Hugo, Lil Eddie, Kid Cudi and Cee Lo Green among others.

They have produced many smash hits including the number 1 hit Nothin' On You by B.o.B, as well as being involved in the writing of the number 1 hit Right Round by Flo Rida.

Initially formed following Bruno Mars' disillusionment with his first solo deal with Motown, The Smeezingtons have since gone on to provide the springboard for Mars' international-chart-topping solo success as an artist with Elektra Records.

I disagree, thought it was a great song. It's chart success proves that.
