Thought Pile

- Arlo Guthrie

Country Southern

- Connie Britton

On the musical side, I always wanted to kind of carry on Pink Floyd's sound. You know, Pink Floyd always had such an original, creative and masterful sound, but there are no new albums. My thought was that there's a way to keep their sound alive.

Love Dig

I don't feel guilty about the music I love. If you feel guilty about something you dig, then you should stop feeling guilty about it.

Big Other

I'm not a big reggae dude. I have maybe two other reggae albums.

- David Bryan

Asking Been

I've been asking myself: 'Why put together these things - CDs, albums?' The answer I came up with is, well, sometimes it's artistically viable. It's not just a random collection of songs. Sometimes the songs have a common thread, even if it's not obvious or even conscious on the artists' part.

Thought Always

I've always thought live albums were cop-outs.

- David Gregory

Music Now

I mix up all styles on my albums because that is what music is about now.

- David Guetta

Beginning Frank

I listened to a lot of Amy Winehouse: her albums 'Frank' and 'Back to Black'. She was such an incredible artist. She was just so raw and had her unique sound; she paired jazz with pop and was so soulful at the same time. So I pulled from her a lot in the beginning.

Extension Definite

Our live show is a definite experience, since it's an extension of my albums.

Still Album

The album's not dead for me; I still buy vinyl albums.

Really Our

Our albums just tend to be collections of songs really, because we all write in the group, all four of us.

Doing Deal

What really helps me is being able to record my albums at home - I have more fun experimenting that way, as opposed to working with an engineer, in which case I have to deal with the humiliation of doing take after take, and that can get frustrating.

- John Frusciante

Checking Harp

Then I started checking out blues albums from the library and playing the harp along with them.

- John Goodman

CD Record Sales

The CD, it should be noted, was born out of greed. It was devised to prop up record sales on the expectation of people replenishing their record collections with CDs of albums they had already purchased.

- John Mellencamp

Voice Been

Aretha Franklin's 'Let Me in Your Life' is one of the few recent R&B albums that places the emphasis entirely and deservedly on a voice. Many R&B producers have been making records on which the singer is outshined by the song, the arrangement and the sound.

- Jon Landau

Sly Revolves

Sly Stone doesn't make good albums: only good records. His style is so infinite and revolves around so many crucial aspects that it has only come together perfectly on a handful of his singles.

I listened to all the Misfits albums growing up and Red Hot Chili Peppers, too.

When you get to the 35-year mark in your career, you make albums for your fans to love you more, so they don't forget about you.

- Julio Iglesias

Actual Making

'Go Back Home' encompasses not only actual geographic location but also, for me, back home in the worlds of music and theatre, and back home in terms of making albums again. There are lots of meanings to that.

- Audra McDonald

More Then

I'm the eldest at 51, and if the Stones can drag themselves around once more, then there's a few more albums in us.

- Barry Gibb

Jewish Lot

For a Jewish guy, I've recorded a lot of Christmas albums.

- Barry Manilow

Think Couple

It's trippy to think we have an album that's 10 years old. It's even trippier to think we have a couple of albums older than that.

- Ben Gibbard

Goal Drop

My goal is to drop 10 projects in 2013. All albums. I gotta do it. I know the 10 projects I want to drop.

- Gucci Mane

Carlin TV

I was a huge fan of comedy and movies and TV growing up, and I was able to memorize and mimic a lot of things, not realizing that that meant I probably wanted to be an actor. I just really, really amused myself and my friends with memorizing entire George Carlin or Steve Martin albums.

- Hank Azaria

Wanted About

I've had about 140 albums released, and I've done everything I wanted to do.

- Hank Snow

Through Mostly

I think if you take 'Get Ready,' 'Waiting For The Siren's Call,' 'Lost Sirens' - those three New Order albums were mostly guitar-based. There were a couple of dance tunes in there, but they were mainly guitar-oriented. They came about through jamming, a lot of them.

- Bernard Sumner

Been Got

As a crew, G.O.O.D. Music is taking it to levels that really haven't been done collectively. Kanye is someone who knows how to make classic albums, a true thinker. He got me in the mindset of being a true thinker and always planning out every move you got going.

- Big Sean

Surprise Kind

Close to the Edge, Red, One of a kind, Discipline, Earthworks, The Sound of Surprise, all seem to me to be albums that captured the essence of the intention.

- Bill Bruford

Question More

I have long begged off the question of my albums reflecting where I am 'at' personally. There is more inaccuracy in that approach than accuracy.

- Bill Callahan

Bring Own

My audience are the same people who bought my albums years ago. These people are now married, with their own homes, their own families. If I'm in concert, I get people now who bring their kids.

- Helen Reddy

Dad Influenced

Dad had a music store, and he'd often bring home comedy albums that I would listen to. I started listening to Bob Newhart and Bill Cosby, and developing taste. They really influenced my style of comedy.

- Billy Crystal

I Think Some

I think what's cool about Slayer is no matter how old their albums are, it's the one band to me that their sound is immortal. It never sounds corny to me. You can go back and listen to some Pantera and Metallica albums, and you're like, 'OK, great music.' But Slayer, you go back, and they always sound fresh and hard as hell.

- Blake Anderson

Grandparents Cut

I lived on the farm with my parents and grandparents. I had no playmates as a young child, and I was indulged. I helped my grandmother piece quilts, and we made pretty albums, an old-fashioned pastime. We cut poems and pictures out of magazines.

- Bobbie Ann Mason


I have a lot of albums yet to do.

- Bobby McFerrin

New Very

I'm very bad with music. I don't know any new music. I've listened to the same 10 or 12 albums my whole life.

- Bobby Moynihan

I Think About

With all singers, insecurity is your best security. That's why we're such loud people and why we walk all funny. You think, 'Are people interested?' But I think our band has something and they know we don't just put albums out. We do think about it.

- Bono

Hollow Elton John

I grew up with 'best-of' cassettes. My first Smiths record was 'Hatful Of Hollow,' and I had hits albums by Elton John and The Cars.

- Brandon Flowers

Career Making

Wherever I went, crowds appeared again, and I started making solo albums for the first time in my career.

- Howard Keel

About I Write

I write about things and put things into my albums that I don't talk to people about. I don't hold back or sugarcoat anything.

- Brantley Gilbert

Sports Back

Back in the day you wanted your albums to have a theme, and 'Sports' theme was really a collection of singles. It was really a record for its time.

- Huey Lewis
