Anyone know anything about these CD-Rs and if they are any good? I bought them for temporary storage of data only:

The reason I'm asking is I just opened up the pack and an awful smell is emanating from the CD-Rs. It smells like a cross between burnt oranges and dead animals mixed with paint thinner (that's the closest I can come up with). Also, on the side of the stack it looks like a bunch of little bubbles. Strange?
My lord, maybe I should just use Taiyo Yuden for everything.
