Have you ever really stopped and thought about how intricate and difficult the process of making a successful album must be? There is, of course, the basic issue of inspiration. Every artist must wring something out from deep within themselves and try to make it cohere outside in the world, make it tangible enough that it communicates something to the listener — and even icons have their struggles with writer’s block.

There are the players, the recording circumstances, the money, the ability or luck that results in a once-in-a-lifetime performance.

awolnation megalithic symphony

Few modern albums have made as vast of an effect as AWOLNATION’s 14-track Megalithic Symphony, whose songs still live on with no end in sight on social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram.
