E P I C S (tracks in excess of 10 mins)....

Starting with "Forever" by Neu!

On the album Neu! 2 (1973)



Sounds like Jenny Ondioline by Stereolab, only much better (as these are the real deal).

The Orb - Blue Room, 39'08 seconds worth of chilled out bliss and the first UK single to take advantage of the 'can be as many tracks as you like so long as it's no longer than 39'08 in length' rule they introduced for chart singles.

I have both original releases, it came out as a fold out edition with the original 39 minute mix, and then space for the 'edit' version which came out a week later, you could slot that into the original box or leave it as is.

I still have a sealed edition of UForb on vinyl, in it's blue pvc sealed sleeve with black title sticker on it, came with a limited editon live disc as well.

Came out on my birthday back in 1992 I think, t'was a birthday pressie to myself.

I have to spend more time with Can (also King Crimson). Perhaps Sunday morning's the best slot of the week.

From memory, it was June? I watched "Head" by The Monkees for the first time, then wrapped the day off with "Blue Room" with headphones. PRE-DOMESTICATED BLISS!

That's not the problem (for me at least), more their tendency for pompous pathos.
And (on some albums) a singer who ended up fronting Asia.

What kind of nutter would listen to Asia????

The The - Uncertain Smile (Dance Mix). Released 1982.



Xylophone frenzy! As opposed to the album version the following year, which turned out to be a piano frenzy (Jools Holland's best piece).

Notice Matt Johnson with hair.

There are three tracks over 10 minutes (Dogs - 17:06, Pigs (Three Different Ones) - 11:28 and Sheep - 10:21). My personal favorite (which is also happens to be my favorite song of all time) is Dogs.

Pink Floyd, of course, are among the masters of "epic tracks", with many beyond the ones on the above album.

The Gathering - How to Measure a Planet
1999



The last track "How to Measure a Planet" is 28 minutes of goodness. Annekke sings but it's mostly without words, she uses her voice like a guitar or other instrument. True class.

Floatation by The Grid.

The vinyl 12inch I have technically goes on forever, as the track ends it fades down to the sound of waves lapping at the shore, however the run out grove on the disc is cut in such a way that it never reaches the centre of the record like you would expect, it just keeps looping the same bit over and over again, the waves just keep on lapping....

I have a Foetus album that does the same trick on the last track, just keeps looping the same note, which by this time sounds like a continuous note, over and over until you have to get up and lift the arm off the disc....

That's the one failing of MP3's, there's no physical element other than a click (one click could serve the whole day).

There's no record sleeve, no touch or smell, nothing to eject, no stacks on the table, not even an inlay to pull out & scrutinize.

So then, on to the saviours of coloured vinyl....

Stereolab - Refractions in the Plastic Pulse (1997)


From "Dots and Loops". The album was mixed by Mouse on Mars, perfect really. A faux krautrock band getting a touch of..... kraut.

OK, if Refractions... counts (I wasn't sure about it since it's basically ~5 tracks mixed together):

Tortoise - Djed

One of the few Tortoise tracks I'd always defend against Tortoise-haters (who may be right about most of the rest).

2 or 3 bass chords repeated endlessly doesn't constitute a very nourishing listen...... which seems to be the essence of Tortoise.

I have Djed on, nice track, it brings Four Tet to mind. Another good one's "It's All Around You", I'm sure I've heard snippets in various ads (the wife agrees). Weighs-in at a feeble 4:19 though.

/just listening to it

Is it just me or did they listen to Steely Dan a lot while writing/recording that album?

Many Underworld tracks clock at over 10 minutes: some of my favourites are Juanita/Kiteless, Spikee, Dark And Long...

And then you have ambient tracks: Eno's "Neroli" (53 minutes) and "Thursday Afternoon" (about 60 minutes), tons of Steve Roach tracks last more than 10 minutes, some of his albums are just one piece that lasts the entire disc

In my collection, nothing beats Robert Rich's "Somnium" released in 2000 on a DVD: 3 tracks, 7 hours, shortest track is 2 hours long

Yeah, but it's 4 minutes of ecstacy. Tragically, nobody outside the UK's heard of 'em (if only they'd gigged instead of spending all that time in court).

Which version's this anyway??? Is it real or imaginary, or even the original played back-to-back?

I have it on a CD maxi called What The World Is Waiting For (according to AMG it was also added to the CD version of their debut album).

And it's 7 seconds short of 10 minutes.

It was probably on the US or Japanese version of the debut then.

I'll have to acquire it for my compilation series, then have a victory cigar and glass of gin.

You're wrong, French rock magazines regularly cite their first album as one of the best rock albums ever made.

I only know the track "I wanna be adored", heard it once and liked it so I got it, maybe I'll get the rest

I'd go for "Fool's Gold" as well, it's better than anything on the album.

Continuing on from zootm....

Rush - Caress of Steel (1975)


A strange album, starts with 3 regular 4 minute tracks and then turns into a sprawling prog-rock beast. 2112 does the opposite.

last track on his album Kryoniks, normally henke does hard percussive techno but he released this smooth ambient album, and the last track is one of the best musical interpretation of the experience of birth, from the start in the womb until the child is out of the womb

About as 70s as it gets, also quite theatrical.

Does "a mix of early Genesis and Public Image Limited" make any sense?
