Heritage (Opeth album)[edit]

There's no good reason to split up the bonus tracks into their own template just for the sake of splitting them up. If you really want to re-add the time to the track listing template, go ahead. If anything, the infobox can show the length of the album proper, and the track listing template can show the total including bonus tracks. The infobox should always show the length of the standard edition of the album, if known. MrMoustacheMM (talk) 02:23, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

There's still no good reason for splitting up the tracklist. Check out Template:Track listing, it says the "note" parameter should be used, among other things, "to denote bonus tracks only included in certain editions". There's no point in splitting apart just two tracks just because they're only on certain editions, the note parameter suffices. If several versions are released, all with different sets of bonus tracks, then it might be worth splitting off several versions of the bonus tracks. Also, it's not worth adding the writing credits to the tracklist until they're all known. Until then, having a couple of scattered credits (well, one credit, and two mentions of "instrumental" that could easily be included in the "note" parameter) isn't very useful, and just looks bad.
