Every year, we try to screen the Grammy Award Nominees and pick who we think the winners might be. This year I decided to make Spotify playlists of some of our relevant categories. Anyone can use Spotify for free, just click on the links below!
Let us know what you think. We will order the most loved/acclaimed albums for our collection.
Any category without at least the majority of nominees available in Spotify was not included, and I have indicated which nominees were not included.
