A compilation album is an album of music featuring tracks from one or multiple recording artists, often culled from a variety of sources. The tracks are usually collected according to a common characteristic, such as popularity, source or subject matter. When the tracks are all essentially by the same recording artist, a compilation album is often referred to as a retrospective album.
