“We’ve never been a band that puts out an album and it’s got three singles on it and the rest of it’s filler. We don’t work that way. It’s supposed to be an album the listener is supposed to want to hear it from the beginning to the middle and it never really ends because when you get to the last song, hopefully, the album is so good you just start it over and listen to it again. And you do that over and over and over again. Because that’s what we like to do is to take people on an emotional roller coaster ride.”
As you may have noticed, this is another (longer) quote by Brent Smith from Shinedown. I really love this, because that’s what I think makes a good artist, whether they’re a pop singer or a rock star, as long as thought has been put into every single lyric of every single song, then it’s going to be one brilliant album to listen to. I’m sure you guys out there will understand and hopefully, agree with this quote, because it shows that they do think about the audience. And it isn’t just for Shinedown. It’s for any artist who wants to make it in the music industry.
