It goes without saying that many artists tend to enjoy the type of music they play. I mean, how many people would be willing to say that they hate their material after having to labor over it hour after hour in the studio? Actually, you'd be surprised at how much material was never supposed to see the light of day to begin with.
Instead of being the labor of love that many may expect, there are tons of songs that artists would have preferred to leave on the cutting room floor. If you spent hours recording it though, why not put it out? Well, it's more complicated than just not liking the song. Some might feel like it's not the right time to put it out, while others may feel too connected to the song to actually release it into the wild just yet. Regardless, the powers that be twisted their arm and gave us some of the most underrated cuts of these acts' careers.
Whether it's a bold new sound for the time or just outright garbage, these certainly stand out as something unique amongst the catalog. Even though they may be streaming everywhere now, there's always that artistic side that would have preferred them to be held in secrecy.
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.
