It's called cd rot. Unfortunate. Sometimes being in sunlight causes that or being exposed to chemicals or the fumes of some chemicals can do that. Even using certain types of markers to label them can put them at risk of rot. In your case, it looks to me like the adhesive layers have separated. Real bummer cause I don't think there's anything you can do about it. Google "cd rot" and you might find something about fixing it (maybe getting it resurfaced would work, but I really have no idea).

You can do stuff to help reduce the risk to your other CDs like storing them upright and not touching the playing surface, etc.

yeah...I've been buying CDs for 30 years, around 900ish now, never had any issue before...

this was a still sealed copy (till I opened it) of the Armada compilation from 1998

Might have been faulty manufacturing then. Here's an interesting article on rot...

Guess that disc doesn't have any hope of glory. What a waste. Definitely not cool.
