1 Echoes - Pink Floyd

Love this track. Listening to it right now, as a matter of fact. It's excellent. - PositronWildhawk

My personal favourite rock song of all time! 23 minutes of brilliance!

Half an album! That's about 5-6 songs in one - mr_crossover27

I think it is so calm and relaxing

2 2112 - Rush

It was hard for me to choose between Shine On You Crazy Diamond and this one, but I had to vote for 2112 - LizardKing99

The dream is my favorite part.

How is this not number 1?

"echoes" is just your typical verse chorus verse format, while 2112 and supper's ready have like 7 different movements.

3 Octavarium - Dream Theater

My favourite part is 12:15-19:50, but every other minute is still breathtaking. My favourite song (and band) at the moment definitely.

Yep... Gotta love Octavarium from DT... LOVE IT! - BimmyJim

24 minuets of pure awesomeness plus nonthing boring just rock n rock and a little metal. I like it better than all songs on this list also six degrees and presence of enemies are heavier but still ausome but It can't beat octavarium

4 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

Song length: 26:05 (all parts)

My second favorite Floyd song. Dogs is my favorite. Unfortunately, Dogs wasn't quite long enough to make the list.

Song length: 26:03 (all parts)

5 Supper's Ready - Genesis

This should be #1. Practically every other song on this list was inspired by it.

6 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater
7 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater

Just pushed this up to the Top 5 where it belongs! This song is a masterpiece that takes up an entire second disc on the massive album! Just listen to the Overture and you will know why!

This song played all the way through live is over 40 minutes long! ! !

8 The Odyssey - Symphony X

Yep octavarium is a masterpiece but please this needs to be 2

9 Tarkus - Emerson Lake & Palmer
10 The Gates of Delirium - Yes

The Contenders

11 Lizard - King Crimson

The jazziest song ever. - IronSabbathPriest

12 Black Rose Immortal - Opeth
13 Thick As a Brick - Jethro Tull

Song length: 43:46 (both parts)

14 Symphony No. 7 - Beethoven
15 Crimson, Pt. 1 - Edge of Sanity
16 The Divine Wings of Tragedy - Symphony X
17 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd

This should be in top 5.

Pink Floyd’s first epic... this is a true classic from such an underrated album. It’s about 23 minutes long and there’s not a single dull moment. A Jazz-rock Classic!

18 The Revealing Science of God (Dance of the Dawn) - Yes
19 Symphony No. 5 - Tchaikovsky

This is sweet classical music!
Respect to human, who added this!

20 A Passion Play - Jethro Tull
