I don't understand how we are to judge them. I may sound like an idiot here, but they both have different titles. Does the new CD have a name? Or are you just making them up?
Either way they are both good. My opinion may not count but here's what I think.
GP - I like the BG of this. The font for "Finch" really goes well with the rest of the pic. The only bad thing I can see, is the way the CD name arches weired. I think it would have been better to follow the curve of the CD.
SS - I really like the way the BG and the font used for Finch go together.The mane of the CD could have done with a different font, or been a bit bigger and not all on one line. The only other thing is I don't like the silver ring going around the outside of the pic.
