a long wait means a relatively poor album?

what does music history say?

a long wait could be a sign of a creativity crisis, so some correlation might not be that surprising.

discuss...

I think the Stone Roses' second album is a good example of this.

Or St. Anger.

Creativity isn't a science, so I would say no.

not necessarely
R.L. Burnside's Ass pocket full of whiskey, Fleetwood Mac's Tango in the Night, Solomon Burke's Don't give up on me and Lindsey Buckingham's Under the skin just being a couple of examples

How about Brian Wilson's Smile?

I've heard it's gotten rave reviews after taking 25+ years to finish.

Stephen Stills' "Man Alive" considerably better than his once and future partner's recent releases (and I love his once and future partner). The song, "Spanish Suite" itself is an unheralded classic.
Granted, I'm sure it contains songs he's had in his vault forever, but that wasn't your question.

Sometimes a long wait means renewed creativity. Sometimes it's just a desperate attempt.

Yeah but that was really only like three years wasn't it, since after she finished it it took a few more years for the record company to actually decide to release it?

No.

When The Pawn was released in '99 and EM was released in '05.

There was a leaked version of some of the EM songs, but nothing that could be called an official release.

If you mean the whole Sony held her record hostage thing, Fiona later explained in several interviews that that's not what went down at all. It was her choice not to release the songs.

I think it can be, but I think a lot depends on how the band or musician usually works and if there are other issues (such as personal issues or contract problems) holding a release up. If a band/musician usually works pretty quickly and suddenly are taking much longer on an album (without outside complications), I'd be a bit nervous about the quality of the album.
