Billy Ocean, who achieved global stardom with 1985 film soundtrack to “The Jewell in the Nile”, said:

“As bodies of work, albums allow us to tell stories, express deep emotions, and take people on imaginary journeys over the course of a number of individual songs that are connected to each other. In my opinion, some of the greatest albums ever made were concept albums, such as Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” by The Beatles – how would it be possible to bring those ideas to life without crafting them into a whole album? The enduring popularity of those albums, and their continued influence on newer artists of today, truly is testament to how important the album is.”
