Nadja - Thaumogenesis (1:01:44)

The whole album is one track.

Old Man Gloom - Seminar III: Zozobra (27:19) is also really good.

Venom - At War With Satan - 22 minutes and 4 seconds.
Manowar - Achilles, Agony and Ecstasy - 28 minutes 38 seconds.

I think once you push past 10 minutes with a song, it tends to loose appeal. You can listen to them from time to time, but most of the time I skip the real long ones......

Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick" must be 30 minutes or more.

Lamont Young's "Dorian Blues in G" clocks in at over 2 hours, and it's just one 6 chord progression.:rolleyes:

Acid Mother Temple - Starless and Bible Black Sabbath (34:29)
Transatlantic - Stranger in your soul (30:00), Duel with the Devil (26:43)
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Karn Evil 9(29:34)
Miles Davis - Bitches brew(27:00)

That's a few of the 100+ songs i have in excess of 15 minutes, you'd think with my short attention span i'd be more partial to shorter tracks :D

Off the top of my head...

Rush's 2112 is just over 20 minutes long, though it is broken down into individual movements (tracks) on the CD.

Dave Matthews Band's Two Step from the Central Park concert CD is just under 19 minutes long, and I love every minute of it.

Fantomas - Delìrium Cordìa

It's one giant track that clocks in at 1 hour 14 minutes and 10 seconds.

Goddamnit I love Mike Patton.

Oh yeah, forgot about Fantomas.

Mike Patton, King Buzzo and the drummer of Slayer in a band? Yes please.

I watched John Scofield and friends play A Love Supreme for nearly 60 minutes live. The experience can only be described as Transcendental.

And I've lived through some very happy 20+ minute live Phish jams over the years.

Jethro Tull's "Thick As A Brick" takes up both sides of an LP (for you young'uns, that's the black vinyl records your parents listened to), so it's got to be the longest song of all. But, like other long songs, it consists of several "suites" which essentially follow the main theme of the song.

Green Day's "Homecoming" (9:18) - I have a short attention span, what can I say. 5 minutes is pushing my patience. That, and I love punk/pop punk, and those songs tend to be fairly short.

I remember the listing for Thick as a Brick in the Columbia House catalogue;

Jethro Tull "Thick as a Brick" contains the hits "Thick as a Brick Part 1" and "Thick as a Brick Part 2":D

+ the LP version (the original one) is probably the best cover ever :rockon: folding it back up and avoiding roach burns, not so easy:eek:

as for the single sides, Pink Floyd "Echoes" gets my vote
