Yup, Mellon Collie was 2 cds, but I was just comparing the two albums' lengths, and both are ridiculous. But I get more out of Mellon Collie than To Pimp a Butterfly. TPAB feels like it's shoving everything it says down my throat. Though MC is self-indulgent, I don't get that feeling with it.

I find Kendrick to never really talk down to you. He presents alot of his opinions in a very nuanced way. I consider a group like the 80s hardcore band MDC to be the kind of people who shove there message down your throat with no personal interpretation whatsoever.

I was reading a bit on Melon Collie and I found out it originally was gonna have 32 tracks before they cut it down to 28. Jesus thats giving the Clash's Sandinista! a run for its money.

Yeah, and I think there are 30 songs on the vinyl of Mellon Collie. Have you ever listened to that? Once you listen to that tracklist, the original is almost unlistenable.

And Sandinista! should've been a single album.

Ehh I would take Sandinista as a double album. Problem was it was originally released as a triple album. Like the Clash may be my favorite band of all time but not even they could fill up a triple album with nothing but good stuff(the fucking children covers just why? who thought that was a good idea).

Yeah. I know it was a triple. But yeah. Especially a punk band shouldn't be able to have enough good songs for a triple. Like, maybe if Bob Dylan in the 60s had taken two years worth of songs could've done it, since the 60s were full of prolific writers.

I also think that based on how many great outtakes he has, any of Springsteen's albums could've been a double.

Honestly there's enough good cuts from the basement tapes sessions to create a solid triple album. Dylan pumped out a lot of good material during that era. His outakes are pretty good to. Not a huge Springsteen fan but did have ever do a double album?

Yeah, The River. And it was great, aside from 3 or 4 filler songs, but he had a bunch of outtakes from the era that could have been on there instead. Yeah, Dylan, Springsteen, and Neil Young were probably the most prolific songwriters of the century.

Oooh...they are both good. I'll pick Pearl Jam

Does Incubus or Limp Bizkit count as 90s bands? I liked them better lol. What did they call it, nu-metal?
