I recently bought OK Computer and Save the World, Lost the Girl and they're on two records each. Why? Why couldn't they have just put 6 songs on each side instead of 3? The Midtown record has pretty short songs, so I don't see a reason why not. It's just more getting up and changing records in such a short time.

Yeah, this is becoming more and more common. The big reason is sound quality. It's like mp3s: the more space a song is allowed to take up, the better the quality is. So since the world of vinyl is being taken up more and more by audiophiles, we're seeing records move in that direction. I remember a few years ago Bob Dylan put out a 10 song album on two records.

It'll get less annoying as you get used to it. I used to hate to have to get up 3 times just to listen to one album. Now I don't mind it at all. But I definitely see how you could dislike it.

Cannot wait until this guy finds out about people that flip records and makes a thread asking why they do that.

What about when they stop putting out albums on CD? Then your collection is uneven format-wise. That would make me care. But I'm weird.
