    30-45 mins seemed about average up until the 90's and whether it was deliberate or not that coincided with recordable cassettes also being 60 and 90 mins. 100 and 120 min tapes were available but the likes of TDK etc really didn't make them in high numbers for the home consumer market until the mid 90's because they considered the length of tape too stretchy.

    I forgot about the hair! Bwahahaha!

    Yeah hopefully they are real fans and it's not just something for them to flip. Did they say if the three guitars went to one person or not? I suppose I can read it for myself. :)

    Mean, seems like just Metallica and Flotsam were making long albums in the 80's And well really their whole career. Oh and Overkill and Metal Church with Howe.

    WHAT? You can read? :p
    I didn't (or maybe can't) read who they went too, I don't think it was listed.

    I remember after CD's started to become more popular I'd always look at the total time on the CD player. I liked value for my money and at 45 min + it seemed like value but that was obviously a mental thing because there is a crap load of classics that clock in under 45 mins.

    Bands like Maiden and Helloween etc did re-write the book a bit with times but when you consider bands like King Crimson were dropping 20min epics back in the 70's and Pink Floyd to a lesser extent after that you can see the book was never a definite rule but did seem like a well used rule.

    King Crimson is older than Pink Floyd? I never really thought about it because they are so old but King Crimson is actually a pretty cool name lol.

    I'm terrible at guessing, but my seeing eye dog is great at reading.

    No they aren't older but PF were 4 albums in before the started writing the 40min + epic albums. KC did it from the start in '68. Although KC's first album wasn't as long as I first thought but it does have a 12 min song on it.

    In The Court Of The Crimson King a classic album and the opening song 21st Century Schizoid Man is a great prog tune and a memorable riff.

    For some reason I thought Adam Heart Mother and Piper At The Gates Of Dawn had some long songs. But I haven't heard that stuff since I was a teenager. :)

    The guys from Pink Floyd were so baked at the time they probably thought they wrote 30 min songs :)

    Maybe a little trip to the dark side of the moon would change your mind? :heh:
