albums aren't redundant, 11th december 2015

never trust anyone who refers to themselves in the third person.... (US republican candidates take note)....... music albums are not a dying breed, contrary to detractors who seem to have some kind of hidden agenda (notably, the iPod shufflers)...... it's like saying art exhibitions are dead and buried...... making a whole album work is an art form in itself.... some musicians/ bands/ artists are particularly skilled at this, whereas other (no less a skill of course) are more attuned to creating single songs........ you can put a collection of single songs on an album but they still may not work because they aren't created to compile together in a way that an album written as such does....... so albums aren't redundant, they are different, serving a different purpose, in themselves standing on their own......... which is why some albums simply don't sound right because perhaps they are designed simply to listen to as single songs..... whereas the album is like an exhibition in a gallery...... something to spend and take time immersing oneself in........... it's not rocket science, if it was I wouldn't be broaching it, much as I'm fascinated with rockets, and science, my brain is a bit useless when it comes to anything mathematical and tends to run and hide inside itself with its fingers in its ears going "lalalalala..."........... listen to the rob (that's me by the way), he knows what he's talking about..... or, maybe not.... what does it matter I'm surplus to requirements anyway........
