You shouldn't be trying to make a "classic". Make the best music you can sure, and if it has an impact then great. But you shouldn't go into anything thinking about making a "classic" cause more often than not you'll fail.

Why would you not strive for the best? Complacency is for losers. "It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we [...] have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory." -Bill Nicholson
I just said strive for the best. But going in saying "this will be a classic" is stupid.

I'd say it's hard for the artist to not plateau when their debut album is called an instant classic instantly after it was released

People called Section 80 a classic after it came out, an he's done alright. But I see what you mean

I honestly think you can tell pretty much right away, maybe 2 spins?

Lol no.

/shrug. I knew after 2 with deja as well as TTTYG, and all other "classic" type records. I don't know, do you really need to listen to an album 20 times to know it's special?
You're confusing "personal favorite albums" with "classics".

A lot of ppl will disagree, but a recent one that should be considered a classic is Radiosurgery by NFG. There's something about that album where I listen to it and think, this is how pop punk should sound.
Good Lord
