Conceptualize This

By Dani Rosen

A concept album is defined as an album where all musical or lyrical ideas contribute to a single overall theme or unified story. In contrast, typical studio albums consist of a number of unconnected songs performed by the artist. Surprisingly, concept albums are more common than you think. From Green Day to The Who to Broadway smash hit Hamilton, concept albums are growing in popularity (I see you Lemonade). So rather than give you something you could find on Wikipedia let me break down a few different albums from various eras and genres. Disclaimer(!!!!!!!!) these are not reviews, just my thoughts on some of the great concept albums of the last 50ish years.

The Black Parade, Track-by-Track

By Sean Carolan

My Chemical Romance’s 2006 album, The Black Parade, is one of my favorites of all time. And, while I haven’t listened to it in its entirety in a couple years, I’m still just as familiar with the songs as I was in 2007. And so this is me, as a 21-year-old, revisiting the album and reacting through the lens of an early-teenage-years emo kid who just got it (henceforth referred to as “you”).

​A Coloring Book for the Soul

By Calkie Fisseha

DISCLAIMER: This isn’t a review, it’s just a look into my brain as I first listened to Coloring Book.

After a very very long and hard time getting Apple music (I am a very stubborn person), I finally got my hands on Coloring Book. Chance the Rapper is something else, in the best way possible. I’m not even that religious but Chance got me ready to go to church with this one. Chance is the future of music. Notice how I said music, and not just rap or Hip Hop.

A View on "Views"

By Calkie Fisseha

I’m not going to lie to you and say Views is Drake’s best album. At first, I wanted to do a track by track review but I ultimately decided against it. There're just many too many emotions I have connected to Drake, both musically and aesthetically (we will discuss this another time). So, I chose to go through the track list and talk about my favorites or just ones I have something to say about. This album is Take Care and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, with some Nothing Was the Same, and a pinch of So Far Gone. What I’m trying to get at is that it sounds like Drake throughout different points of his career.
