To record an album that runs two hours onto a CD, you will need to burn it as a data CD. This is because burning the CD as an audio CD will only allow it to hold about 80 minutes of music. Unfortunately, standard CD players cannot play data CDs. Computer CD players, however, can play the audio from data CDs.
