About This Podcast

Have you ever wondered why your favorite singer/songwriter or band chose a particular title or set of songs for an album? Have you ever wanted to know more about the intended message of the album or the meanings of the lyrics? Most album reviews focus more the music than lyrics and often say fairly little about the meanings and messages artists are trying to convey. What's This Album About? gives you in-depth but accessible lyrical analyses of new musical releases from artists across genres.
