Albums are still one of the greatest ways of listening to music. While any band can just pump out a few singles and pad out the rest of their album with filler, writing a collection of songs that play off of one another is something that is insanely difficult to pull off.
As opposed to just writing the same type of party song over and over again, these acts have taken some of their best work and crammed it into lean sonic packages. Not only do each of these songs speak to each other, but it's even more awe-inspiring when any track from your album could constitute being released as a single.
These didn't come without a fight though. Throughout most of these records' production cycle, these bands often had to move the moon and the stars in order to come up with the results they were finally satisfied with. Since these records have gone on to become staples in the rock genre and templates for up and coming musicians, suffice to say we're glad that they put in the hours.
Whether you listen to these tracks on their own or as part of the album experience, you'd be hard-pressed to find a single dud on any of these records.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
