The content of Studio album was merged into Album on December 1, 2013. That page now redirects here. For the contribution history and old versions of the redirected page, please see its history; for the discussion at that location, see its talk page.
This article is structured like an overview of more specific albums (photographs, stamps, etc.) The musical album is certainly a notable subject on its own, and there is certainly enough information to supply its own article. However, since the studio album was merged into this article, I think that relocating it into a section of a more broad article will allow for more detail on that topic, and also give underdeveloped musical album formats (concept, remix, etc.) a page to merge into to make one full article instead of several fragments.

Can you say a little more about what you'd like to do with a page on "Musical album"? It seems like some of the main topics are covered in articles like Concept album and Album-oriented rock. groupuscule (talk) 21:53, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
@Groupuscule: Sorry for the late response! To answer your question, it looks like the current structure for the "Album" article is kind of just a brief summary of several types of albums; I feel like it's unorganized to have such a large topic like musical albums and just have them thrown into a few sections here. If we were to create a "Musical album" page, I was thinking that we can get into more detail than in this page, since it will be focused solely on music, and perhaps fold poorly-sourced/structured articles like "Concept album" into this one. The existing "Album" article may perhaps become a disambiguation of the various types of albums touched on in this page. WikiRedactor (talk) 19:33, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
Support, a musical album is a distinct concept from the general concept of album, with a history of its own, and deserves separate discussion. --cyclopiaspeak! 14:39, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Album is the primary topic for the concept of musical album (no other article title involving "album" comes close to the readership of this one, which is about music/audio albums, and has hundreds of incoming links from articles on music albums); the splits suggested have already taken place: Stamp album, Photograph album, etc, and there is a disamb page in place: Album (disambiguation); as such there is no need for splitting, all that is needed is for this page to be cleaned up.

I noticed that all the interwiki links were to articles on music albums. Curious, I looked into the history of the article. It had from inception been about music albums - until this edit in Oct 2012 changed it to being about all forms of albums. It doesn't appear to be a malicious edit, simply a mistaken one, that has taken until now to resolve. SilkTork✔Tea time 16:56, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
