To be fair you said no obscure twaddle but have let Tales From Topographic Oceans slide. 

That's mostly what it does...

Mate, what is it with you? You’ve started a perfectly reasonable thread which you are now sabotaging. We can all do without the petty insults and it’s not the first time this has been said.

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road would’ve been better slimmed down, but getting it to a single, vinyl album would’ve been tough.

Quadrophenia is a great double album and Tommy isn’t bad either (I’m not a Who fan boy BTW).

I think The Wall could be shorter, but again, there’s more than a single album’s worth.

Physical Graffiti is one of my all time faves, but they should’ve released the HotH tracks with that album, as that would’ve been epic.

Do: Quadrophenia - It's the only one I can think of that works from the first note to the last note.

Don't: all the others. They're usually a failure of quality control, rather than someone genuinely having too much quality material for one album. Mellon Collie and Use Your Illusion have been mentioned and they're ones from my lifetime notable for having one outrageously brilliant album diluted with filler. Stadium Arcadium would struggle to be distilled into a good EP.

My personal opinion is the influx or CDs ruined the old school double album which generally limited artists to 45 mins per album. However, since CDs bands have frankly been putting too much stuff onto a disk, leading to incredibly long 'single' albums which are frankly longer than most classic vinyl double albums. RHCP Stadium Arcadium effort being a case in point. 

Yes, a pet hate of mine. It’s one reason why I insist on keeping our cds down to no more than 9 tracks. I treat them like I would vinyl. 

My other pet hate is “extended” cds, where they take an album and stick some “rare outtakes” or live versions on the end. Just gimme the album please. It’s not just albums I’m familiar with either. When I first bought/ heard the cd of Fotheringay by Fotheringay (which has become of my favourite albums), I remember thinking that the last two tracks didn’t seem to fit in the running order; it was quite obvious it should have finished with Banks of the Nile. When I checked what the original album track listing was, lo and behold the 2 tracks were add-ons and it had indeed originally finished with Banks of the Nile.

Ok, no idea where the quote went and it won’t seem to let me edit it!🙄

'Sadness Will Prevail' by Today Is The Day could have done with being a single album. It's a concept piece, yeah we get it - but the concept could have been conveyed the hour of great tracks and left the rest of the ambient/dawdling parts behind.
