Greatest Runs Of Classic Albums
Written by Urban Mogul Life on November 11, 2014
A classic album is a term that is thrown around way too much these days. To some people out there a classic album is one that includes the “hot” song of the day and a few other commercialized jams. With so much garbage being released it is hard not to call a “good” album classic, especially when compared to what is out currently. However a classic album is defined as a work of art that not only stands the test of time, but also can be played straight through with little to no skips. You may be able to get away with one skip, but most classic albums you can play from A – Z! It is a hard mission, however some artist have successfully created their moment in time and dropped a jewel on us, leaving a testament that we can vibe out to for years to come.
Every once in a while an artist or group gets into a zone where everything they drop is classic! Not one album, not two, but try about four or five classics in a row? Sounds hard doesn’t it? Well a select few have mastered the classic album making business during some point in their career. Leaving behind a body of work that speaks for itself cementing their legacy in the mind of the fickle public forever.
