I've had a bugbear for some time that bands make albums too long (I'm looking at you The Suburbs) and that dragging on beyond being welcome. It is possible to make great long stuff but the longer beyond about 45 mins the harder it becomes to justify the extra lengths.
Double albums can be great but almost always become pick and mix albums rather than listen straight through (looking at you white album)
Well anyway upon listening to some classic shortish albums (Futureheads debut atm) and really enjoying them. Am aware of plenty of shorter punk albums that clock in 10 mins onwards as well, just not that familiar with them.
Anyway here's the question beyond just mulling on shortness normally being good and longness normally being a bad thing, can anyone think of albums that are categorically too short?
