    I listen to mostly cd rips now & always listen to the full album. When I was wedded to vinyl I would often play only one side of 3 different records.

    Kraftwerk's Autobahn, side two isn't bad, but is forever in the shade of side one.

    I used to do that also, but now I play both/all sides in order. Must be down to my mild Asperger's as I do not why I now do this

    I can't remember the last time I listened to 'Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands'. It seems to go on for hours.

    "All Things Must Pass" is 2/3rds good... The jams on the 3rd LP are dull as.

    Most so-so double albums can be boiled down to an excellent single album. There's simply no excuse for triple albums.

    you must have bought some bad music, I most certainly have. Better luck myself now when you can have a listen before buying

    I don't own that many double albums, and certainly no triple ones, but I had a mate who was a Grateful Dead fan and all their albums seemed to be triples. Good double albums tend to be compilations; so 'Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine' by The Doors has all the good stuff from their studio albums, and almost nothing in the way of filler.

    Agreed on the title (from a poem IIRC) and that side 2 is less stellar than 1, but it has Weeping Wine and The One You Never Had on it, plus Matthew Sweet, so it's OK by me. That said, She's A Girl...' really isn't up to much.

    But if writing that and most of Bad Vibes* resulted in Tried To Rock (one of my favourites of his) then they've justified their existence in my book.

    *The B sides around then are better than much of the album IMO, which is the one I play least.

    The mood of side two just jars, I wonder if it would better playing B & then A.

    Worth a try. Or just treat them as separate mini-albums.

    After the first few plays I only ever played side 1 of Fisherman's Blues. Or rather the first 4 tracks, with World Party serving as a swan song to the big music.

    Does this mean you won't be buying the 60 CD Merzbow box set Joe?

    I keep meaning to get a CD copy of Marquee Moon as my vinyl copy is a very poorly regarded reissue.

    Marquee Moon side 2, every track's a banger!
