The success of music albums is the finest example of how appreciating a track by a specific artist differs from becoming a follower of the artist in general. The great album of all time is a matter of opinion because various people have different perspectives on music. They continue to be well-liked even today, when music streaming allows fans to select certain songs rather than downloading entire albums. Here are a few of the best music albums of all time.
What’s Going On
Marvin Gaye, an American Motown singer, released his eleventh studio album, What’s Going On, in May 1971. From the perspective of a Vietnam veteran who has arrived home to see a nation rife with hatred, suffering, and injustice, the concept album is told. Prior to public outrage over these contentious subjects, this album is credited with raising awareness of problems including poverty, drug misuse, and war. What’s Going On, sung so beautifully by Marvin, is still extremely relevant in our post-pandemic days and speaks a much about the condition of our countries while also inspiring us to keep working for justice and embracing love.
Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell’s fourth studio album, Blue, was released on June 22, 1971, on Reprise Records. Blue is the first time any big rock or pop artist has been so completely exposed, from its smokey, introspective cover to its utterly unguarded approach to songwriting. It may be the ultimate breakup album and it sets a benchmark for confessional lyricism in pop music that is still unsurpassed. Mitchell presented herself as a solitary painter who yearned to understand all of her sadness using instruments and her mind-bending voice. She thinks back on previous interactions and connections. Even while Blue is an incredibly intimate representation, it is also incredibly generous and fair.
Songs In The Key Of Life
Stevie Wonder’s album Songs In The Key Of Life took all the elements that had made his previous albums so remarkable and brought them together around a central idea that had appeared to him in a dream. Jazz, funk, gospel, and classic soul music were all seamlessly blended together. Tamla Records, a branch of Motown, released it in 1976. Songs in the Key of Life‘s lyrics take us on a trip through life, true to the title of the album. The songs move fairly haphazardly through creation and destruction, happiness and melancholy, joy and anguish, and love and loss; there is no clear progression.
The Beatles, an English rock band, have released their eleventh studio album, titled Abbey Road. The makes little difference in how stunning of a farewell the record is. The Beatles had preliminary intentions to continue ahead following the September 1969 publication of Abbey Road, ideas that swiftly broke apart during the beginning of the new decade. In several ways, Abbey Road differs from the other of the Beatles’ discography. It is a recording so opulent that it weaves together a number of fragmented, incomplete songs into a cohesive suite. It also receives tremendous power from its rich, engulfing production.
