In the general trend towards longer songs, Vampire Weekend is an exception. So far, they have put out two full-length albums. Those two albums timed out at 34:11 and 36:40, respectively. In other words, you can burn both albums to one CD and still have about nine minutes left to spare. I was a little surprised when I discovered this, but hey, it makes it that much easier to pick which CDs to take in the car for a road trip.
Also, I’ve heard a theory that Vampire Weekend is a band that lots and lots of people like, but nobody really loves. I can buy this, but are there any huge VW fans out there who care to disagree?
