Being a successful musician is one of the most difficult things to maintain. Though any average musician could be in the right place at the right time and have a huge hit, it takes a real artist to be able to maintain that over an album and career. It's nearly impossible for anyone to keep the momentum going forever, but these guys managed to pull it off with flying colors.
Regardless of decade, these bands have been able to make some of the most high quality music in the genre while staying consistent.
While many of their contemporaries may get laughed at for the one outlier in their catalog, you'd be hard-pressed to find a single dud amongst these bands' discographies. Granted, some albums may be better than others, but there has never been a release that has made fans cringe with pain.
Instead of just trying to build themselves up again and again, these artists gave us some of the best rock music ever made without ever losing that initial sonic spark. Whether it was because of the band breaking up or just raw talent, these are the artists that have been able to leave a spotless sonic legacy behind them.
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.
