Default Albums

I've never understood the upside to an "album." To be honest, I find the concept lazy and signifying a lack of creativity.

Maybe its me but great CD's should be like Mixed tapes, with a ton of diffrent styles and if the group can at least one diffrent singer.

Bands that do similarly themed releases are just mining the same rock over and over to me.

Does anyone feel that albums are boring like I do?

these days albums arent as good as they used to be.

there used to be singles bands and album bands and the albums bands did albums well and the singles bands did singles well.

albums used to have meaning, now they are just random collections of songs

I think Cds are the problem.

With Vinyl you only had to put 7 to 10 songs on an album. On a CD it can be anything to 12 to 16 songs, and a lot of bands struggle to make that number consistantly good.

Boris, thats what im saying I want. I like random colelctions of songs.

And to Urban, you may be onto something. I remember reading some interview where the artists were like "well i remember when Kiss would but out 2, 8 song albums a year"

I think it was Metallica but they went on to wistfully remember those particular heydays. If I ever make it big...
