The Strokes, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Battles, Shyne, Blink 182, Avril Lavigne, Bright Eyes, The Streets, The Get Up Kids, TV on the Radio, Beastie Boys: In 2011, the comeback album is alive and well. That's a good thing. Here at Vulture, we're all about happy endings and second chances and the general spirit of redemption or successful re-introductions. But ask yourself: As these artists return, are they doing so with panache? With style? With grace? With verve? With a sense of purpose? We're not talking about the music they're making, of course — we're talking about the manner in which they announce their comebacks. As more and more artists rise up to resurrect or resume their careers, Vulture takes a look back at the lessons learned from ten musicians who came back right.
