I really must try to figure this out then, as there must be _some_ way
that you decide which is which... I mean, take the most recent two US
Pet Shop Boys releases. The album "Nightlife" had 12 tracks - 42
minutes, the single "New York City Boy" had 9 tracks - 72 minutes!?

it's fairly straightforward stuff as far as Hybrid are concerned.

Similar to my first question- "why was this not on Wide Angle?". It's a
strong track and would have suited the album, in my opinion.
