Re: (TV) Grammys

Good point-but again we are talking (ultra-conservative)
Grammys here-so no.1-the record had to sell(I think it topped the charts?)

"Supernatural" is no groundbreaker-just a good album-but compared to some of
the previous "Albums of the Year"(Grammys)+ Carlos's prior achievements -In
that context I thought It was well deserved
