Mudcub's Best CD Reissues, Best CD Artwork, and Worst CD Artwork

Here are some more lists I try to do every year: resissues and artwork. I love CD packaging. Even though purist may miss the larger size of record albums, I love what some artists are doing with the CD. And not just the cover, but the tray and the case and the top of the CD itself. It helps convey a whole atmosphere is the artist wants to - it's that little extra that can really make a CD "important". At the very least it shows that someone out there cares enough to a coherent package and vision.
