If you’ve bought any number of CDs in the past few years, you probably have one with a “hidden track”. A song that didn’t make the cut for the album but was apparently good enough to hide somewhere on the CD.
What is the purpose? Is it meant to be some kind of twisted easter egg? Should I feel some sense of accomplishment for finding this little nugget of uselessness? Is it meant to make me feel like I’m getting more music for my money? Whatever it is - it drives me crazy. Quit trying to be clever!
A band I like, Cold, released “Year of the Spider” a few years ago. The album is great, but after what you believe is the last song, you wait about 13 minutes to find that there is another song! A perfectly good song that I have to scan 13 minutes to hear.
Here’s an idea… why not just make another track!?! Instead, I have to drive my car and scan for this song at the same time.
Now sure… I can copy the CD and remove the extra space (which I’ve done) but why must I got through the trouble?
So to all you music producers… stop making hidden tracks! Just label the CD accordingly and stop forcing us to scan around needlessly!
