What is the Shortest "prog" album?
 
I thought Relayer might be short but it's still around 40 minutes.
Anyone know of any shorter length albums?

Rush's Hemispheres is very short. 34 or 36 minutes I think. Also some of the GG stuff like Octopus it's around that time.

I believe Permanent Waves is the shortest Rush disc, coming in at around 32-34 minutes. That's about as short as I know of, barring EP releases.

^I stand corrected, total time is 35 minutes and change; I think it's still the shortest Rush disc though.

Six Wives from Rick Wakeman is obscenely short, but not shorter than some Le Orme albums.

I think Robert Wyatt's "A short brake" is quite ahort album indeed. Less than 20 minutes, if I'm not confused. I'll check the actual time, but I'm pretty sure it is less than 20 minutes long. Now, I don't know if it is actually considered as an album...
