*The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes)*


This is a list of the top songs over 10 minutes long in my humble opinion. I had to resist the urge not to put every single Symphony X, Opeth and Agalloch song over 10 minutes long on the list so some of equally high quality are left off to increase diversity. Songs are sorted by approximate preference with #1 inspiring the list. I love long songs so if you know a good one please send me a message and I'll give it a listen. **Last Update 09/03/2011**

Well, that may be the case for you, but I don't think that's the case for everyone.
