Description: This course will be exploring various popular and ground breaking musical albums that are considered to be “works of art” and answering the question: When/How does an album stop being just a collection of songs, and become art? We will be attempting to answer this question through weekly explorations of critically acclaimed albums and analyzing said albums’ thematic elements, tracklisting, storytelling, lyrics, and more. In this course, students will learn the tools and writing techniques to write about music and albums to better understand the music they like and analyze it.
