Chris asks
-} Now, my question is, does anyone think Pat might do better to release albums
-} less frequently, so as to put an overall higher quality of songs on each album?
-} (Or is the average song quality just fine? :) It seems to me that other
-} musicians might consign more songs to the B-side category and release fewer
-} albums.

Many artists like to just concentrate on having fun, maybe just fling it all out
there and see what sticks (so 2 speak), at least until they receive a certain
level of notoriety/acceptance. Personally I'm all for being given the opportunity
to hear "everything" and then I can always decide what I do and don't want to
listen to. Besides, if he cut back on releases, we would be on here complaining
about too little material, no? :)
