Your Favourite Long Long Players

double thumbs up emoji thing for Only Built…

fuuuck. so good

Exaii is fucking great, love putting it on shuffle
The Powers that B is also a good listen, tho NOTM is significantly weaker than JD, and i’m not particularly sure them being a double album is anything more thank a wee joke?
The River is a good double
Chronic 2001 is fantastic
All Things Must Pass is the best Beatles Solo album, and is for me just as good if not better than the Beatles albums

aye

John Frusciante - The Empyrean
Boards of Canada - Music Has the Right to Children
Mark Pritchard - Under The Sun
Hiatus Kaiyote - Choose Your Weapon
M83 - Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming
Daft Punk - Random Access Memories

good call, been ages since I listened to that, remedy needed.

I have a 4 and a half hour Norman Nodge set on my iPod that has been my listening for an entire week of commutes before.

Last 3 Swans albums.

Yeah I’ve got a copy of the vinyl (I don’t think it’s the first run, but the reissue) where the cover is black with a shadowy bloke in the middle.

I like long albums a lot. Would definitely also add praise to Godspeed, Lift To Experience, Aphex Twin. These are the ones that come to mind without me having access to my library:

Prurient - Black Vase/Frozen Niagara Falls
Earth - Earth 2
Jesu - Jesu
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation (never listen to this now because of the sheer amount I overplayed it as a teenager)
Lovesliescrushing - Xuvetyn
The Knife - Shaking The Habitual
Grouper - AIA
Eluvium - Nightmare Ending
Ian William Craig - Centres

Surprised no one has mentioned Mellon Collie, not that I like it one bit!

Also - Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”

Juno - A Future Lived in Past Tense

69 minutes and 55 seconds apparently. Wonderful album.

Yeah I think mine is the reissue too, but I like the artwork and a book is always a bonus. Some good stuff in there, Centres is one of the 7 I was thinking of.

The God Machine - Scenes From The Second Storey (77 mins). Epic.

Had to check how long it was when I read this, doesn’t feel 75 minutes at all to me.

To Pimp A Butterfly is 80 minutes, and every one of those minutes is gold.

you should be giving Unwound a thumbs up there too pal, all three are classics

surely at least one bit, like Bodies or Zero or something, everyone likes one bit

Fucked Up - Hidden World (obviously)
David Comes to Life is good too I guess

i’m goingto have to stick to this and say - no!

ludicrous, there’s so much of it that it’s impossible not to like at least a bit of it.
