Re: [microsound] How long should a "digital" album be

from my experience, i once decide, many years ago, i wouldn't keep tracks i
didn't like. therefore, i usually just save a few tracks from an album, so
the 'album' concept has been erased from my vocabulary. i think eps are a
more fair format for todays hurry. my 5 cents.
