Apparently, that's not on the radio or TV. I must not be looking in the right places.....

Back when we would drop $15 of hard earned summer job money on a cd at an actual record store (remember those?), each cd meant a lot more. The cover art, listening through the first time, discussing with friends, etc.

The holy grail was the "album you could listen the whole way through".
Couple examples, for me anyway:
Stone Temple Pilots - Core
Pearl Jam - Ten
Nirvana - Nevermind
Pinkerton
Of course, pink floyd dark side and wish you were here. Then again those were from a different time where records were made to be listened completely through in one sitting.

CD's like that were semi-hard to come by back then, but now they just don't exist. The industry is 100% single focused. There is just no money in making a real album. It sucks, but it's just the way it is. Create 2 singles, slap them together in an "album" with 8 more crappy songs and send it out. Rinse and repeat every year. They know kids will only buy the 2 singles anyway.
