exceptions to the one rule re. albums that I have

an album should preferably be 40 minutes long
I can deal with an album clocking in at 50 minutes
but - please - no albums that are longer than an hour

of course there are a few exceptions to this rule but not that many

only ones I can think of are:
* Ryan Adams - Gold
but that's just because this one is so insanely good

* Captain Beefheart - Trout mask replica
because you really need at least 15 minutes to get into it

If it's a good album, the longer the better as far as I'm concerned.

1. Red Hot Chill Peppers - By The Way - 68mins - no fillers
2. Dave Mattews Band - Under the Table and Dreaming - 63mins - no fillers
3. Dave Matthews Band - Crash - 68mins 53sec - no fillers
4. Beastie Boys - Ill Communication - 59:39, just misses
5. Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band - The Rising - 72mins 59 secs - no fillers

I know many of you do not like Dave, but those are both amazing albums. I grabbed 9 CD's these where 5 of them that I checked.

under the table and dreaming is a fantastic album.



i don't like short albums because then i have to get up sooner and find a new cd.

dropkick muprhys album blackout is 46 minutes...no filler there.

an album should be as long as the medium could hold the music... e.g. 80 minutes worth of songs on CD. (Get my money's worth! $10- great! $20-Better be good )

BUT, no song should be over 5-6 minutes, unless it's really beautiful and well done.
