Make albums better. Or different. Explain why you did it.

The first Tindersticks album has some great songs, but is full of tedious filler that makes it a chore to listen to. I made it better.

1. Nectar
2. Milky Teeth
3. Tie-Dye
4. Whiskey & Water
5. Her
6. Raindrops
7. Drunk Tank
8. Jism
9. Tyed

Danzig II: Lucifuge is too long. It should be leaner, tighter, and leave you wanting more. The last two songs are a drag and the album ends on a bad note. "I'm the One" SCREAMS closer. I made it better.

1. Long Way Back from Hell
2. Snakes of Christ
3. Killer Wolf
4. Tired of Being Alive
5. Devil's Plaything
6. Her Black Wings
7. 777
8. Blood and Tears
9. I'm the One

One time I accidentally listened to No Code backwards and the narrative was really pretty depressing.

I'd put both Use Your Illusions into a single album.

side 1
Dust N' Bones
Don't Cry (original)
Estranged
side 2
Pretty Tied Up
14 Years
Yesterdays
Breakdown
side 3
Don't Damn Me
Bad Apples
Dead Horse
You Could Be Mine
side 4
Locomotive
Coma

I'd also combine Springsteen's Lucky Town and Human Touch into an EP.

If I Should Fall Behind
My Beautiful Reward
Human Touch

Pony Boy

Kanye's first two albums are way too long and have way too many mediocre songs or other filler. They work better condensed into one tight album:

1. Jesus Walks
2. All Falls Down
3. Gold Digger
4. Get 'em High
5. Addiction
6. Crack Music
7. Two Words
8. Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix)
9. Last Call

How do you accidentally do this? Once Around the Bend starts playing and you keep listening, it's no longer an accident.

I got plenty of time if the songs justify it. Most of the time, they don't. (Also, I made DOTEOT longer, not shorter.)

I actually did my own version of this recently:

1. Somewhat Damaged
2. The Day the World Went Away
3. Into the Void
4. Starfuckers, Inc.
5. Complication
6. Where is Everybody?
7. The Wretched
8. We're in This Together
9. The Fragile
10. Even Deeper
11. Please
12. The Big Come Down
13. Underneath It All
14. The Way out is Through
15. No, You Don't
16. The Great Below

trag cut like almost all my favorite songs! And left a bunch of stuff I consider filler(ish).

I like LV's slightly more, but I would swap out his 'No, You Don't' for 'La Mer' or 'Just Like You Imagined'. Also 'The Perfect Drug' is kinda cool but would definitely not make it onto a single disc. No way.
