The White Album by The Beatles is by far my favourite. Do you have a favourite song from that one?

Mellon Collie was actually triple as well, it's just that it was released at a time when the vinyl format wasn't popular and most people remember it as a double CD

I'm not usually a proponent of double albums. I like to listen to albums in their entirety, and my attention usually begins to wane by the end of the second disc. Normally, I would rather the band just release two separate albums spaced apart and cut out the filler that normally goes along with doubles.

Actually, on the same point, I think single albums that push the 80-minute mark are usually too long as well. I think the ideal run time for an album is 50-60 minutes. With that being said, there are few double albums that I love...

Dylan- Blonde on Blonde (I believe it was the 1st rock double, but it now fits one 1 CD)
Rolling Stones- Exile (however, it also now fits on one CD)
Yes- Tales
GNR- Illusions (going out on a limb on this one, but both those albums are great)
Floyd- The Wall
Genesis- The Lamb

With all that being said, there are loads of live albums that I think warrant being doubles or triples, but I think that's different than studio recordings.

I know most people love both those The Who albums, but I could never really get into either one, no matter how hard I tried. The concept of "Tommy" just seems so absurd.

I will admit that there are parts of the Quad that I really like, though
