Taku Iwasaki's albums definitely take some getting used too, though there are some that flow as albums better than others. I find the Akame Ga Kill albums flow excellently even with a bit of genre hopping. The Kuroshitsuji II soundtrack is also an oddity in Iwasaki's discography, in that there's nothing odd about it. No Opera Rap, no Orchestral Dubstep, no Trip-Hop with a trumpet run through a Wah pedal, no...whatever's happening in the Ben-To soundtrack ( ) It's pretty much all classically influenced soundtrack affair.

Some individual soundtracks with longer tracks:
Jyo Oh Sei
Bamboo Blade vol. 2 (the first volume has a 6:20 track and a 14:17 track {which by itself is an amazing track}, but excluding vocal tracks, all the rest is less than 2:00, but the second volume is more consistently over 3:00)
Serial Experiments Lain (with the exception of the "Bootleg" disc)
Inari Konkon Koi Iroha
Michiko & Hatchin
Dimension W

Some composers who tend towards longer tracks:
Shiro Sagisu
Shogo Kaida's anime works (wish he'd do more anime, the 91days soundtrack was superb)
Makoto Yoshimori
Yasushi Ishii (though most of his tracks are vocal tracks in some capacity or another. But still, he's a brilliant song writer)
About half of Yuki Kajiura's works. (Noir, .Hack//sign, Madlax, El Cazador De Le Bruja, Le Portrait De Petite Cossette, Pandora Hearts, the second disc of Kubikiri Cycle)
