Albums that should actually be double albums.

although i haven't seen one here (recently anyway), people always gripe about double albums that would be much better as single albums.

give me your list of double albums that you actually like as double albums.

and yes, despite it being seen as 1 cd, london calling is still a double album. same with anything else like that.

Usually, the excess is the whole point of it all. Like with the White Album, All Things Must Pass, Sandinista!, Mellon Collie..., and a fuckload of other double- and triple-albums. People who say those should've been cut down are stupid people trying to sound insightful.

my face and i just wanted to start this thread because we feel that the fragile is not just the best nine inch nails album, it's also one of the best albums ever, and right now i like it just as much as london calling or exile on main street. outside of those three, i can't think of any other double albums that i would listen to from start to finish. typhoon can call me a pretentious ass now.

omgz, why don't you change the title of this thread to: "The Fragile is one of the best albums EVAR" ?

because then i know no one would read it. i'm an attention whore, isn't that obvious?!? either that or the nin fans would come out of the woodwork and talk about how much "a-with-a teeth-aah" annoys them.

and it's not the best album ever

that title goes to sinners & saints "the sky is falling" (which only has 9 songs, interestingly enough).

A-WITH-A TEETH-AAH!


i actually like that song quite a bit. as i like the rest of the album. but it's only a regular album, so it doesn't belong in this thread.

Bruce Springsteen - The River
Beatles - The White Album
The Clash - London Calling (but Sandanista! could easily have been, say, a double album instead of a triple.)
Kate Bush - Aerial
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Lyre of Orpheus/Abbotier Blues
