Various Positions only has 9 songs. I'm Your Man has 8. I often forget that, so Popular Problems is in good company.

Both of those albums are in my top 5 favorite LC albums along with Songs of Love and Hate which has 8 songs. While not in my top 5, The Future is another good one which has 9 songs. So in that respect it is in good company.
But then again at the same time I am reminded of Death of a Ladies Man with its 8 songs, so in my opinion there is a little polution in those waters too :lol:. It's a shame because I really like the lyrics on DOALM, I just don't like what Phil did with the music and production. In 1993 LC said in an interview in Goldmine that he often considered re-recording that album. I really wish he would revisit those songs so that they would live on as he would like them to sound and not the train wreck Phil gave us in 1977.

Valid points. The albums contain so much it's easy to look past the seemingly small amount of songs; The Future is a great example of that. I personally love DOALM, it's fun and cheeky and such a left turn for him. But I digress...

Looks like Amazon US jumped the gun as the listing seems to have been removed now. There's nothing on Amazon UK yet.

With a total length of 35:56, it becomes the third shortest LC studio release: Songs from a Room 35:38, Various Positions 35:29.

So, we can wait for a new masterpiece, like Bird on the Wire or Dance Me to the End of Love! :razz:
