Is the album dead? No, say Rush and Smashing Pumpkins

They made albums. They defend their choices.

Geddy Lee and Billy Corgan talk albums vs singles | MusicRadar.com.

It’s a fun read, but they omit something important about trying to revive the “album” as a format: The “album” grew longer in the CD age. In most cases, that’s not good.

Which leads me to my early review of Clockwork Angels: It’s really good, except that many of the songs are 2-3 minutes too long.
