Nothing wrong with a long album if it's consistent

Although the only 70+ album that comes to mind as being completely consistent is Disintegration

Oh, the problem is not the albums, it's me. I usually get bored by long albums, even if they're good. They gotta be great, awesome to grab my attention all the way until the end. Examples: R&H, Exile on Main St. (which is 67 min long), Chinese Democracy...

Every Breaking Wave and Tripoli (if no Fez-Being Born) were cut after he said that.

I generally don't mind long albums, seeing as I usually sit around listening to music forever

Oh and I forgot () by Sigur Rós that's over 70 minutes and is perfect too

So yeah the more the better in my opinion, as long as the more doesn't suck. But I'm happy enough with what we have 52-53 minutes


We also get to hear NLOTH 2 on Friday

hhahahaha, I do the same... but like I said, listen to music on your pc is a curse, it's too easy to change the song... then, I usually skip or go listen to another band after 50-60 minutes...

Oh, friday ... and NLOTH is the song I'm expecting the most...

rattle and hum doesn't really count. take away the live cuts and the excerpts and the album is just under 40 minutes long.

Average albums these days start with a 3.

Why did he lie? What a dumb thread
Not All of them, Metallica's Death Magnetic is about 74:41, Chinese Democracy is 71:18. Line could end up being over 60 minutes if you include the iTunes bonus tracks, hopefully they aren't remixes of No Line On The Horizon or something like that, but new tracks.

Well, that's true... but then there's no kicking ass Helter Skelter, Silver and Gold, Bullet the Blue Sky and the more important....
NO FREEDOM FOR MY PEOPLE...


Ah, and in case I wasn't clear R&H, Exile and Chinese are albums that I like a lot and that are near the 70 min mark

Anyway, here is the running time for the new album based on this:
Walmart MP3 Music Downloads: U2 - Top Songs from $0.74, Free Music Tracks, Albums from $7.00

52:23.

This is hardly long for a U2 album! Or "very long" as Bono said it was. I got my hopes up and everything. I started imagining Fez-Being Born being 10 minutes or something.

So, why did Bono say this? This is the kind of crap that disillusions fans!

So pissed!
Maybe Bono meant long in terms of Cylon time. Seriously dude, if you think 53 minutes isn't a long album, you should listen to more music.

And why do you always have to start redundant threads? Give that ego a break and try posting in existing threads. Do you really think this topic hasn't already been discussed ad nauseum considering that 1) Bono's comment is really old (and possibly incorrectly quoted and 2) the album length has been known for weeks?

Why would you care about this? So what? There's 11 new songs. That's all that matters.

Why so concerned with length? I thought size didn't matter, it's how you use it.
