->''"When I record an album I'm trying to get as close as possible to that perfect moment."''
--> --'''''Music/LouReed'''''

While most people today are familiar with the modern concept of an album, said concept being a collection of several musical tracks together in a single package (such as an LP, a CD, or a cassette tape), the album was not always as ubiquitous as it is today, and the way albums are packaged has changed as well. The first albums were released in bundles [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Earlyalbum1.jpg which resembled photo albums]], books containing several 78-RPM gramophone discs. The idea of having larger, long-playing vinyl discs to fit a collection of music on was introduced by Creator/ColumbiaRecords in 1948, with these 12-inch records capable of having 23 minutes of audio on each side and having much smaller grooves.

Despite this advancement, the album did not catch on for a while. [[AlbumSingle Singles]] (which themselves became more popular as 45-RPM vinyl or gramophone discs) tended to be the main way that music was consumed by the public for a long time. However, in the 1960s, albums became more important, as musicians began working more carefully on them as a unit of expression themselves rather than just a collection of randomly put together songs. {{Concept Album}}s, {{Rock Opera}}s, ProgressiveRock music, which used the format to its fullest potential and pushed it to its limit and beyond, also allowed for an exponential increase in the importance of albums. AlbumCoverDesigners were brought in to provide striking images that would attract the public's attention and could be interesting in their own right too.

In recent years, however, the album has had a [[http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/extendedplay/2008/06/the-recent-decl.html decline in popularity]]. Part of this is due to the rise of [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil file-sharing networks]] making music more accessible for people and, of course, less costly. Digital music stores, such as Apple's iTunes or Amazon's Amazon Music service, have also allowed people to purchase individual tracks instead of making people purchase whole albums if they do not desire to do so. Despite this, the album continues to enjoy some degree of popularity, even if some people believe it is a [[DeadHorseTrope dead format]].
