An album is a collection of audio recordings issued as a collection on compact disc (CD), vinyl, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century as individual 78-rpm records collected in a bound book resembling a photograph album; this format evolved after 1948 into single vinyl LP records played at 33 1⁄3 rpm. Vinyl LPs are still issued, though album sales in the 21st-century have mostly focused on CD and MP3 formats.

The album is a melancholy triumph, filled with indelible, rock ‘n’ roll-infused songs about love, nostalgia, doubt, and, most of all, persistence. Not Ready to Make Nice" contains all of the above, its steadfast lyrics crescendoing toward increasingly intense highs, while tracks like "Lubbock or Leave It" speed recklessly ahead, powered by loud, distorted electric guitars. The album is a melancholy triumph, filled with indelible, rock ‘n’ roll-infused songs about love, nostalgia, doubt, and, most of all, persistence.
Their third album, From Mars to Sirius, also had a message as heavy as its music: Ocean Planet and Flying Whales address ecology, and sea metaphors and themes of marine-mammal preservation rounded out the band’s massive, natural sound. An immediate hit in their native France, the band soon became spokespeople for environmental causes and Joe became the country’s first bona fide guitar hero in decades.
