Greatest Long Rock Songs in History
The Contenders: Page 7XW
A beautiful song that finds a delicate balance between anger and peacefulness before leading into the album's intense and pulse-pounding closing track, the self-titled "Alpha".
This song really shows the power this band can maintain when they have an extended running time to work with. A lot of their tracks are around 3-4 minutes in length normally, so this and "Burn" are their only two examples of extended tracks, which is disappointing to a certain extent because they really should have more songs than two that are over the 6 minute mark. This song is amazing and will keep you coming back for more.
I am shocked that there is not a yes song on the list
