the original release of damien rice's o album were packaged in small cd-sized clothed covered hardback books (that would fit in to one's record's collection just nicely)...

also sometimes older compilations or foreign versions of albums have better tracklists...

i really don't like digipaks and other flimsy cardboard packaging which some albums only seem available in . i much prefer digipaks or at least something reasonably substantial (like small hardback books). the card style packaging doesn't age or travel well and it's nice to have something you can take in the car. plastic jewelboxes can be cannibalised and you can recycle plastic as well as card.

also, a bugbear are bonus tracks tacked on the end of albums which ruin the flow of records. i'd prefer them on a separate disc or maybe hidden on the pregap. and inlay booklets designed as posters seem designed almost never to fold back into position.
