SEE REVIEWS

Album Apart offers brief and visual track by track album reviews. This is done by using this chart which is a classification system that looks beyond genres. Color, icons, and quick descriptions exhibit the most dominant characteristics of each song. Together, they give a quick assessment of all of the songs on a given album.

Energy

The Energy column evaluates the overall liveliness of a song. It takes account of not only the beats per minute, but the pace of the lyrics and the velocity of the instrumentation. It’s the measure of stimulation in music. 

Feeling

The Feeling column examines the general mood of a song. It gauges the vibe of a tune with all its sentiments, both musically and lyrically, and determines that tune’s core expression. It’s the measure of emotion in music.

Complexity

The Complexity column analyzes the intricacy of a song. It looks at a musical piece with respect to its lyrical execution, subject material, instrument arrangement, and interplay between all of them. It’s the measure of depth in music.

Pearl became Joplin’s final studio record, released posthumously three months after her unexpected death, and it underscores her powerful, raspy, and yearning voice like no other album in her brief but significant catalog.
