one of the best albums i have ever owned is by the champaign, illinois band hum. their major label debut on RCA was called "you'd prefer an astronaut." only nine songs, but its over 45 minutes long. thats an average of 6 minutes a song. it is so amazing. almost a heavy metal record, despite the fact that the vocals are sometimes barely louder than a whisper. this is a nonstop sonic assault on your eardrums that is definitely an album to pick up. this is basically the cd cover of the album made into a winamp skin.
