Thanks Crag Rat, I do enjoy the longer passages, I cant help it, I was brought up from an early age on Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, Fairport Convention, Mahler, Led Zep & a little Simon and Garfunkle for good measure. Not sure what you get if you mix all them together?
I think the message is to do something that I will enjoy producing (without being too selfish), that I am proud of and that others may get some enjoyment out of too even if they do think one or two songs are too long for their taste. I shall opt for quality over quantity. I certainly wont realease it until I am 100% happy with it and I am prepared to be ruthless! You only get one chance at a debut album, I want it to be right.
And will price it accordingly when finished to what it is worth, I am sure I will get plenty of opinions on that one.
There are a lot of things to consider, thank you everyone for your points.
