Have you noticed?

Have you noticed that albums have gotten shorter and that more and more are listenable straight through? Less filler and more killer. How many great albums were doubles back in the day? Exile, Blonde on Blonde, The River? Sure there were others but for the most part great rock albums clocked in at 40 minutes or less. Mostly 10 great cuts. The CD and the drive to fill 80 minutes on each release has ultimately been a bad thing for the music biz. Glad to see the change. Now if we can just get everything released on vinyl again...
