SYW was started in 2002, and released in 2003. That's a year.
Tango took 16 months - November 1985 to March 1987.
Tusk is well documented at 18 months.
Rumours took a large chunk of 1976, much of it due to mixing. And mixing. And mixing.
I think she's spot-on when she says FM spends a year to record an album.
As a fan, I'd say the time is worth it - the results are typically stellar. As a band member, I'd say we need a young producer to take the reins and keep us focused and working, and not over-manipulating the material.
