Quote from: thecuriousorange on January 03, 2022, 06:51:44 PMI don't think there's even been a double album that couldn't be whittled down to a superior single disc. Quality control usually takes a large hit in the unfocused second half.

Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on January 05, 2022, 12:01:27 PMThis was the first thing that popped into my head upon seeing the thread title. Even the comparitively long follow up, The Royal Society, was still fairly brisk at about 45 minutes.
Quote from: shlug on January 03, 2022, 12:42:55 AMPersonal favourite of mine but Spiderland is surprisingly short at just under 40 mins. I love how unique and droney the album is so I could do it with being longer as the time just flies by whenever I listen to it but equally it feels like the climax to Good Morning Captain comes in at the perfect point so I wouldn't want to spoil it so I'm a bit conflicted.

Quote from: lipsink on January 05, 2022, 03:40:19 PMI recently rewatched the 'Breadcrumb Trail' documentary where one of them said it was originally going to be an 8 track album but they decided to leave 'Pam' and 'Glenn' off the album to make it more sparse. I think it works better without those songs but it definitely feels a little short.Mogwai's third album 'Rock Action' really could do with 2 more songs on it. After 'Come On Die Young' the band purposely RA really short to kind of be contrary (according to Stuart Braithwaite anyway)
Quote from: The Mollusk on January 05, 2022, 01:52:26 PMTRS doesn't capture the same frenzied energy of the debut, and although I know that's intentional and they were expanding their sound it unfortunately didn't win much favour with me. Even revisiting it years later I found it pretty underwhelming.IIRC "Blood & Fire" seemed to then toe the line pretty well between the two, being 37 mins and a more polished attempt at the heavy madness of the early stuff. I need to go back and listen to that more.
Quote from: Darles Chickens on January 04, 2022, 10:57:42 AMI remember Supergrass's Road to Rouen being short and surprisingly underwhelming, like they were basically out of ideas and had padded an EP's worth of tracks out with a bit of useless filler.
