The longest albums of all time

Wanted to make a list of the longest albums, just ever, suggest things in the replies or elsewhere, I'm not including the 24 hour song skull, that's not an album (I changed my mind)

Deluxe editions and reissues don't count

The shortest album I'm accepting is Soundtracks for the Blind, so they must be at least 2 and a half hours long to be accepted

EDIT 10/01/20: It's sad to see Soulnessless dethroned but it will still hold a special place in my heart, because it was an amazing experience to listen to. Thank you and goodnight.

!! I HAVE CREATED A NEW LONGEST ALBUMS LIST, AS THIS ONE IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED, I WILL TAKE SUGGESTIONS FOR ALBUMS !!! https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/40rats/list/98815/longest-albums-of-all-time/

If you are still updating (in which I doubt you are considering last update was 6 months ago, but I could be wrong): https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/545662-vav-31-dream-city.php. VAV-31's Dream City is 03:37:42 and some "post-script" bonus tracks that would make it 05:12:10

Ehhhhhhh the length of glitch princess comes from a bonus track. It doesn’t even hit an hour length without it. I don’t really think it should count

Sorry i get really heated when I talk about the man.

Alright guys...I lost steam lol. I tried my best to accomplish my goal of a 24 hour album, but surprise surprise - its tough work. I find myself forcing it too much at this point and I promised myself I wouldn't do that when the spark was gone. I officially made it to 9 hrs 53 mins (although the track list according to AOTY and RYM is missing the last song Endanlegur (Enduróma) which is 14 mins).

I have a potential future contender. It is a work in progress and to be honest I am already losing a bit of my will/spark/focus so I figured I'd lay it out here to kind of hold me to its eventual completion. This was the website that inspired me to create a 24 hour album (I had no idea there was a community that saw the value in album lengths that were orders of magnitude above average before I found this page), so I figured this should be the only place I share it. I don't plan on promoting it at all. I just want it "on paper" somewhere, so to speak, to hold me accountable.

I would like to make some requests to this.
1. 🗻, it is 6 hours, 38 minutes, and 14 seconds long and it a powerful ambient album.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iHSDtdZsoI
2. There Is No Problema: A Tribute To The No Problema Tapes, it is 10 hours, 30 minutes, and 8 seconds long.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sklIuRFF28

This next one doesn't really count but I'll say it just incase.
The time stretched version of William Basinski's The Disintegration Loops is 8 hours, 27 minutes, and 14 seconds.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sklIuRFF28

Hope these can be added :)

@inglume @oh @toasterqueen12 added them all

I'm definitely not going to listen to any of these
