Well, as far as Peter Gabriel goes, There was a six year wait between So and Us and Us is my favorite album of his, on the other hand there was a ten year wait between Us and Up and Up is my least favorite of his albums, so I think it just varies, sometimes it could mean something great, and sometimes it could mean something not so great

I don't think there's necessarily any concrete science or direct correlation between speed of output and quality. That said, three albums in 10 years is damn slow for a band who describe themselves as "being in their prime."

The next album might be brilliant, however.

No, apparently Silverchair's new album kicks ass. That was a five-year wait.

I think the longer fans are made to wait for an album the higher their expectations get so I think that could also be a factor in albums being disappointing if you'd had to wait a long time for it.

good point. on the other hand, an album that comes out sooner than expected is like "wow I didnt expect new music this soon, awesome!!" so people would probably be slightly more lenient in their judgements, having not been obsessing over what the album might sound like for years

No matter what the inspiration for this thread was, I personally guarantee that LP7 will be the best Radiohead (or Thom Yorke) album since Kid A.

I don't think so

with Scott Walker, we have to wait around ten years for each album, and it's a fantastic musician and every album is risky and interesting

so maybe a super long wait means a good album, while just a long wait is more likely to be correlated with a poor album?
