Just some randoms songs. All are epics but my favorite is maybe Echoes because it has so many different sounds who are still awesome and very dreamy lyrics. Supper's Ready is my second because it has genuine lyrics and story. 2112 has extremely good guitar and drums and philosophical spacey story, It's my favorite Rush song. I like the Jazz Fusion flavor and the lyrics about war and peace of The Gates Of Delirium. Taurus 2 is my favorite Mike Oldfield Song. Tarkus is interesting too because it has the most half-baked story here. I'll end up voting all of the above.

Wasn't there a 30 plus minute song by Transatlantic called "all of the above?" ;)

I think you have Caravan's album title instead of the song "Nine Feet Underground." There is no 20+ minute epic called "In The Land of Grey and Pink" Voted Echoes but could easily have been half-dozen others on this list. Also Phideaux "Chupacabras" and "Ommadawn" part 1.

I voted "all of the above," the sort of thing I don't usually do, but all of these are essential prog listening. My favorite would probably be Gates of Delirium.

Agreed, but I voted the Gates because it just has a touch more of that sumpin' special than the rest.

Lot's of great stuff here. Went with Supper's Ready...
He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me -- John Barrymore

SUpper's Ready is prog perfection---incredibly moving---but Gates is a masterpiece of electronic rock jazz music.

Suppers Ready.

Ah, so much good prog! I have to go with Rush's 2112. That's one of my favorite pieces of music ever.

BTW, check out my list on Rate Your Music if you want lengthy epic length prog.

Thanks to many of you on this site for making the list larger than i could've done alone.

Many songs I love, but I'm in a Pink Floyd phase, so Echoes.

Lizard and Echoes (voted for the former) - Pharaoh's Dance is a treasurous fusion-gem but hard to it with compare these two.

Tarkus - Blew me away when I first heard it and it still does.
Also Love Echoes and Supper's Ready.
Despite being a huge Rush fan, 2112 never clicked with me like it does with most other Rush fans. I like it but I'd much rather listen to the Fountain of Lamneth or Hemispheres.

Circumstances by Capability Brown is fantastic
Illusions On A Double Dimple - Triumvirat
From Silence To Somewhere - Wobbler
