I'll tell you why. Because the artist(s) released an album, not a single. A lot of thought goes into which tracks go on an album and even which order they go in. These musicians want us to listen to their whole album, not just the single that gets all the radio play.
Some of my favorites:
Mika - Life in Cartoon Motion
Saccharine sweet bubblegum pop out of Britain, people either love this album or loathe it. A guilty pleasure for me certainly, I'll dance like nobody is watching, as long as nobody is watching...
Air - Talkie Walkie
This is an album for sexy-time. French duo Air delivers an album with delicious pacing that gets more exciting track by track, just like good sexy-time. ;)
Rush - 2112
Love me some concept albums, and Canadian rock band Rush does it better than most. In a post-apocalyptic future where music is outlawed by the religious totalitarian state a man finds an old guitar in a cave, figures out how to play it, & is blown away. When he shows the Priests his discovery Bad Stuff happens.
Dream Theater - Metropolis: Part 2
Prog-rock at its finest as only America's Dream Theater can do. This is another concept album featuring past life regression, epic tech-metal riffs, and a twist ending that would make M. Night Shamalamadingdong jealous.
Please give me your favorite albums Topia. I'm not the only one who can commit to 40-80 minutes of music at once, am I?
