Same songs, same order… but take it like that and I think it suddenly doesn’t seem as long.
I don’t want people thinking I’m really hung up about these ‘it’s a bit too long’ comments in all the reviews. This blog post took all of two minutes to write and wasn’t particularly pre-meditated. Just an idle, passing thought…
But I do think the ability to divide an album into four sides is one more small joy that’s been lost to the mp3 era.
