I understand that bands such as Fleetwood Mac, Radiohead, and Guns N' Roses take several years just to record a tambourine overdub, but I still think it's silly to make a big deal out of the fact that the White Stripes can make an album in two weeks. Two weeks! Big fuckin' deal! Cash-strapped indie bands make records in a weekend all the time. And jazz groups, jeez, they feel like poseurs if it takes 'em longer than an afternoon to record a boxed set.
