A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Best ofs – Stegzy’s Music Project

on October 2, 2014

StegzyWe now enter into the muggy world of “Best of” albums. For the next 29 days we will be delving into the mindset of the fan, the music producer and the bands that are too lazy to chuck out another studio album so cobble together a few popular songs on one album as a retention marketing exercise.

Best ofs are an excellent way to become familiar with a genre or an artist’s work. Quite often, when trying to get an idea of what an artist sounded like, I would get their “Best of” and used them to make a judgement on whether or not I obtained their other albums.

As I said, this works well with genres too, so you will see a number of genre focussed best ofs over the next few days. I intend on adding the tracklisting of genre focussed best ofs as quite often these reflect the compiler’s taste rather than being an accurate reflection of the actual genre. Plus I find this kind of thing interesting.
