Research several Rolling Stone (or well-renowned journalistic publication of choice) album reviews (https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-album-reviews) and, using those reviews as archetypes, write a 400-600 word review of an album of your choice. Excellent album reviews will have some historical context (i.e., comparing similar previous albums by that artist and other artists) and a well-written narrative that includes all or nearly all of the tracks on the album. Some questions to ponder: Why is this album successful or unsuccessful? How does it compare to other similar albums? Which metaphors or similes would you use to describe some of the musical aspects? Which tracks catch your attention and why? How does the album flow from one song into another?
