The pop music world tends to be all about the singles. Whereas many bands from other genres have infiltrated the charts on occasion, most pop listeners don't bother themselves with the less catchy material from their favorite artists. However, every once in a while you get that one artist who's able to provide solid hooks and incredible performances in one perfect package.
It's never easy trying to write something for the pop market. Not only do you have to come up with something that you think is artistically significant, but also able to stick in the listener's brain throughout their day. These albums may have been able to keep us singing along, but they also left us with some more material to sift through on repeated plays. Whether it's the lyrical style or the performance itself, these albums are able to keep the listener engaged with every track without ever losing their momentum.
Regardless of release date, each of the albums on here have the potential to outlast any of the junk food music that tends to permeate the pop sphere. It might be a bit of a longer sit for most pop fans, but these records are journeys you'll be glad to have taken.
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.
