How a Great Album Can Easily Be Ruined

0 0

A great album in a not so great order makes for a not so great album.

I believe there is an art to song placements on an album, and if the order of the songs are not thought through and considered, a really great album can turn into a so-so album, strictly based on the listener’s experience.

No one wants to feel jerked around from a high to a low. I believe there should be a natural progression in both music and lyrical theme.
I’m so huge on album order, that I sometimes find myself creating a playlist and rearranging albums in the order I think they’d best flow.

I recently did this for Kierra Sheard’s Graceland album.

Check out the album in it’s released order, then for some fun, try it out in the order below!

Note:

1. Even though “Balm” is an interlude, I still think it flows better at spot #2, I’d just remove the “Interlude” title
2. “Found Love in Me” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness” are bonus tracks so I left them at the bottom.

What do you think about this new order?
Have you ever experienced an album of great songs placed in a not so great order?
