My background is a very classical training so I suppose I treat a peice of music as a composisiton rather than a song, the difference now is that amount of influence folk music has had on my writing. My songs tell a story in the true folk tradition but I like to develop them musically and get the most from track. Nothing is there that shouldnt be.
There is one or two short tracks but most are longer, they could have been longer but I have tried to reach a comprimise with what I would like to write and what I think peoples attentions spans will appreciate.
I think splitting the tracks into seperate halves is my best option, I have seen a few people do that before. I will end up with about 11 tracks that way.
