Big Fun is terrific, and another particular fave of mine. That and Get Up With it are the two Davis albums I return to the most.

Usually I don't like double albums... well, I do like them, in the sense that I often like the songs included and so on... but I feel that as a whole album, they kind of loose it. Too much music, and it's not easy to make it all memorable, so it loses the masterpiece status it might have achieved if they had only used the music for a single disc, and not too long at that. I feel this is even true of live albums, even though the band may have done a perfect choice of songs and ended up with a great double live album, somehow my favourite live albums (as a unit) are the ones that fit in one CD. Some examples of this are Live in Pompeii and David Gilmour in Concert (I know, they only exist on DVD, but they would fit perfectly in a single CD, and I wish they released them so, because they sound wonderful).

Now, The Wall is a weird one I'd say, as far as the concept and the telling of the story goes, I think it's brilliant, but musically it loses it's greatness because of so many short songs, many of which aren't really that great... well, in the end none of it's songs is really bad, just some of them are weaker (and they are the shortest ones, anyway). So I guess The Wall in the end really makes one of the strongest double albums. Some of the others I know Really fall short for me, such as The Lamb, Tales from Topographic Oceans, Phisical Grafitti (surely, they all have their great moments, but as a whole I just don't like them so much).

On the other hand, I recently just got a double album, the band is "Cast", the album "Originallis". I had read some very good reviews about it, and ordered it... I was a bit skeptic about the album as a whole because it is a double album, and as I said, I expected it's quality to fall short in some places. However, it really surprised me, it ended up being great all around and I loved it. The weakest part for me was the final track, but even though they don't announce it so, it really feels like a bonus than as a true part of the album, because as a matter of fact, it's a medley of songs from previous albums from them, and while the rest of the album is in spanish (they are mexican), this last medley is in english. So, in the end, from the few double albums that I do know, this one, Originallis, at the moment is my very faovourite.

I enjoyed "Yesshows" and TFTO myself!  

"Yessongs" has some good stuff, and a really nice booklet!  Haven't heard it in ages, but I did see that tour in concert Smile
