“My favorite album currently is Happier Than Ever by Billie Eilish. I have watched her grow from 150K followers on Instagram to her 100+ million she now has. Watching her bloom into the beatiful, successful young lady she is now has been such a crazy experience. This album is my favorite because you can really see the growth in not only her music, but in her as a person. She has always been known for her sad music and attitude. This album highlights her emotional growth to her finding true happiness in her life.”

“The Dark Side of the Moon cover intrigued me when I  bought it in April 1973.  I was 19 at the time and Pink Floyd was becoming a mainstream success with a growing fan base, myself included.  The mind-blowing music coupled with lyrics exploring themes of alienation, loss, and materialism struck a personal note which echoes within me to this day.”   MA
