    Adele’s 21 era is a good example. It got acclaim, and had 3 number one singles (same as 1989) plus another hit(s) (Rumour has it and Wildest Dreams/Style). Both sold in the tens of millions (21 did have like an extra 10 million or two) and both won Album of the Year. They are very comparable. The only other album that comes close is either Teenage Dream or maybe Thank U Next but at least the other albums could win a Grammy

    Teenage Dream wasn’t acclaimed though, it was more like a playlist of hits than an album and its sales were carried by its singles

    What about Kendrick Lamar’s Damn era? He won the freaking PULITZER for God’s Sake. I’d say he could compare with 1989’s era

    Yeah 21,DAMN,25 even divide all can compare. I meant 1989 was super big..worded it wrong sorry.

    Adele’s 21 was way ahead of anything released last decade, that was a moment in music, it’s literally the best selling album of the century, let’s not talk about how it went against everything that was considered popular at the time.

    21 easily eclipses 1989. The only thing 1989 had over 21 was the tour, and that was for obvious reasons.

    The 2nd biggest era of last decade was clearly Ed Sheeran’s Divide.

    25 was arguably bigger than 1989 too.

    I think 25 was a bigger era than 1989, though 1989 feels more like an “era” than 25

    This information is new to me (tho maybe I just didn’t know). Do you have the link where this is stated?

    I found it here in the craft committee guidelines: https://www.grammy.com/sites/com/files/bluebook_nominating_process.pdf

    The wording is strange to me and I don’t know if the voted works are the ones that also showed up on nominations day (mirrorball/gaslighter for jack, for instance)

    25 was very frontloaded..in terms of longevity 1989 is bigger.

    I agree that as an “era” 1989 was bigger than 25 (and maybe 21). She just did more publicity and had the microscope on her a lot more. Adele has always been absolutely massive and been universally adored but she hasn’t ever had such a traditional pop “era”

    Regardless this conversation is completely irrelevant💀
