Woodchuck - Goldfinger... LOL

Nah,

The Drapery Falls - Opeth.

Either that or Through The Fire and the Flames - Dragonforce.

I'd say the DF one first, but most of the time I listen to long songs when doing something else, or just lying down and half snoozing, the Drapery Falls is a very good song for that (though a bit morbid...).

You guys... seriously...

You don't know what LONG songs are until you have listened and digested (understood) the "Tales from Topographic Oceans" album, by the legendary british band Yes. Altought it is far more listanablñe than, say, most of King Crimson's music, it was way too much for them poor hippies, who booed the record for it's abstrusity... quoting the wiki:

QUOTE
The album is the most controversial album in Yes's discography, and possibly in the entire history of progressive rock. The album's concept, a four-piece work of symphonic length and scope (incidentally based on the Shastric scriptures, as found in a footnote within Paramahansa Yogananda's book Autobiography of a Yogi), was their most ambitious to date.

The album, released when "prog" was at the height of its popularity–with bands such as Genesis, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Jethro Tull, and the earlier albums of Yes–was arguably a key to the genre's swift decline in popularity. It perhaps played a significant role in paving the way for the punk rock bands of the mid 1970's, epitomized by The Ramones and The Sex Pistols, by forfeiting a large chunk of the momentum that had been built up by the group's previous three studio albums. However, comparing it with what punk music had to offer also demonstrates how much poorer the pop-rock music world would become in a few years' time.

Further, the record supposedly epitomized everything that was considered wrong with progressive rock music at that time. When released, the popular music magazine Melody Maker summed the album up in one word; "No", with similar reaction by Rolling Stone upon the album's re-review. The abstruse concept and extended execution were the main targets of the album's critics, who argued that too much musical padding had been employed with little in the way of a proper concept or lyrics to back it up. But it is important to note that most critics were generally unable to grasp more advanced and complex music, so their view was essentially biased.

Conversely, certain critics and fans were enthralled by the album's sheer ambition and depth, lending Tales from Topographic Oceans an equal measure of critical approval that has stretched to this day.


QUOTE
For prog rock's detractors, Tales is the genre's nadir. For admirers it is an artistic pinnacle. Regardless, it is difficult to deny the determination necessary to undertake this sprawling epic. Although broken up into four sections (the time limit of one side of a vinyl LP being about twenty minutes) Tales is a single composition. Although Jethro Tull had released Thick as a Brick, a single-song single album one year earlier, the unitary composition double-album was unprecedented in the world of mainstream rock. For the band, it was the closest they would ever come to a true fusion of classical structures and themes with rock-oriented instrumentation and sensibilities.

The lyrics are, for Yes, typically elliptical and spiritually oriented, and difficult to interpret as strict prose. Anderson's approach put a premium on the musicality of the lyrics rather than on their literal meaning, a sort of "Absolute Lyrics," analgous to classical's Absolute Music (music for its own sake devoid of programmatic significance). Musically the album features elaborately textured, harmonically sophisticated interaction between Wakeman, Howe, and bassist Squire.

It is a quintessential example of the progressive rock movement, and despite having its detractors, many Yes fans state that the album is not the pariah of the progressive rock movement it is claimed to be.


Get it and give it a try... I find this album a mind-boggling experience, but this is NOT FOR ROCK NOOBS...

In sum for those who skipped: it's a conceptual album with 4 songs (that are separated just because of the Vinyl LP format:

1. "The Revealing Science of God (Dance of the Dawn)" – 20:25
2. "The Remembering (High the Memory)" – 20:38
3. "The Ancient (Giants Under the Sun)" – 18:35
4. "Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil)" – 21:37

Maynard James Keenan once said that true prog rock is not and will never be mainstream... "unless Green Day start playing a TFTO song cover in their live shows" (the clue is: if you like Tool, you'll like this one, despite it is not like "metal")

Those songs aren't terribly long- don't act like Yes is the only one. Good post, though.
