Theory: No album should (or needs to) exceed a 45 minute length limit.
There is no example you give where a little judicious pruning (of song or song length) would not improve said LP.
Even my favourite album of all time, Abbey Road, would be improved by snipping out Sun King(therefore moving straight from You Never Give Me Your Money into Mean Mr Mustard)
A Rush Of Blood To The Head – Coldplay (lose A Whisper and Amsterdam)
Tunnel of Love – Bruce Springsteen (lose When You’re Alone)
Like a Prayer – Madonna (lose Act of Contrition and Keep It Together)
Listen Without Prejudice Vol 2 – George Michael (lose Soul Free)
Editing even made Be Here Now into a passable 9 track 44 minute album…
* incidentally, hugely recommend Mark Lewisohn’s “Hornsey Road” talk doing the rounds. Made me appreciate my favourite album even more. The Isolated John/Paul I Want You vocals were phenomenal.
