From Start To Finish
Today I listened to a whole album. It wasn’t a planned “aural experience”, I just had my iPod with me while walking around, and on my way back home I realized that I had listened to the whole thing.
It’s been a while since I’ve done that, and it’s been a while since artists of any genre made an album that you can actually sit through and enjoy. (This one wasn’t some classic album from yesteryear, it was very recent and nothing groundbreaking, genre-wise.)
In our short-attention-span, singles-driven market, does a full album even matter?
