How long does an album take to make? History is littered with tales of day-long recording sessions, but including the writing process makes the question more interesting. Daft Punk's third album Human After All was said to have been created in two weeks, but was also criticised for being underdeveloped and overly repetitive, while Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak was created in three and faced similar criticism. Soulwax seem to be experimenting with this idea, having recorded their previous album From Deewee in one take and now completing Essential in a fortnight for BBC Radio 1's feature of the same name.
