Best Overall Album - The best of the best. This is the album with the best songs, best flow, best collection, and you just can’t stop listening to it.

Best Cover - Good-looking, smooth, stylish, and makes you melt when you see it, kinda like James Bond, but not… or it could be totally funny and hi-lariously cool, kinda like Conan, except not…

Best Liners - “Me fail English? That’s unpossible!” is only one of many good one-liners out there which would not win this category. :) This would go to the most well-thought out, well-written pieces of cr… work we’ve seen. :)
Best Layout/Design - From the front cover to the back, the layout of the liners and the interior art and designs are superb.

Best Theme - Webster’s dictionary describes a “theme” as: a subject or topic of discourse or of artistic representation, and also: a specific and distinctive quality, characteristic, or concern. The winner has the best of both worlds. It also describes it as: a stem, or: a written exercise… errr… moving on…

Best Title - Not “Claymates”! It’s the album (not “Claymates”) with the catchiest (not “Claymates”) title ever (not “Claymates”), that just gets (not “Claymates”) stuck in your head (not “Claymates”). :)
Best Flow/Selection - From beginning to end, you never feel as though you were driving on a bumpy road. And the songs just mesh together perfectly.

Best Single/Song - The most riveting, heart-wrenching, shirt-ripping, baby-dropping, drunk-driving, getting maried then divorced, absolute best song of them all!

Best Gimmick - It could be anything from theme, inserts, extras, even how you deliver it or present it to people.
