QuoteSince CD's were launched in the late 1980s, albums seem to be getting longer. It's certainly true for Rush and other rock bands I can think of. So, I decided to look at the Rush albums released in the 'CD age' to see if a bit of quality control could have been used to trim the albums to a vinyl-frendly, single LP length and remove some of the duds.I set a limit of 45 minutes per disc. I don't know if this is the practical limit for vinyl but it seemed like a reasonable length compared with earlier albums. So here we go. Do you agree with my choices?Power Window - doesn't need cutting!Hold Your Fire - remove Tai Shan and High Water: new length 40:42Presto - remove Scars and Anagram: new length 44:09Roll The Bones - remove Face Up and The Big Wheel: new length 39:00 (this one could be savaged down to about 24 mins actually!)Counterparts - remove The Speed of Love and Alien Shore: new length 44:38Test For Echo - remove Dog Years and Limbo: new length 43:10Vapor Trails - remove Ceiling Unlimited, How It Is, Sweet Miracle, Secret Touch and The Stars Look Down: new length
QuoteVT was the hardest to trim cos it's by far the longest studio album and there are some really good songs on there. I'd rather have that one as a double LP and keep it intact. I suspect, however, that others will find it very easy to trim this one ;)
