I love the whole piece, but Apocalypse in 9/8 is just brilliant.

I don't get that. When you have all those wonderful melodies and the brilliant ending, it's basically Tony Banks running scales up and down the keyboard. 

btw - the timings are wrong - 20:51 on my version is when Gabriel sings "our souls ignite".

Quoting The Bearded Bard friend, refering to Apocalypse in 9/8 "...perhaps the best 5 minutes of music ever recorded..." even for me, but it could be by this way just because it is part of this whole thing called Supper's ready, so as Dellinger said "...they flow perfectly together (the sections) and make a whole that is much greater than the sum of the parts..." perfect definition.

Not at all, I believe. Unless, perhaps, they had been presented as different tracks but kept in the same order and without pause between one part and another (such as side 2 of Abbey Road with the Beatles) - which would be just about the same as it actually is. But if it had been broken into different "unrelated" songs (as they did with their "Duke" epic in the 80's), definitley not. Plus, for me, despite the fact that the sections are clearly identifiable and different, they flow perfectly together and make a whole that is much greater than the sum of the parts (and I may add that all of which are perfectly beautiful in their own).

All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Just to be different I'm not a massive fan of Apocalypse, I voted for the brilliant climatic ending.

I just see and hear it as one piece of music to be honest.  If pushed I'll go for Guaranteed....  Seen as it's not proving too popular Shocked.

^ Depends on the potential effort of the band. Some could make nice ballads, like the interlude between "Willow Farm" and "Apocalypse" could be a part of a short ballad.

I'm of the school of thought that the whole sounds rather patchy, and each one of those sections would find its own niche elsewhere.

Apocalypse in 9/8, the peak of the epic, followed close by Lover's leap.

Of course it's gonna be the 'Apocalypse In 9/8' section but the entire piece is a pinnacle of 70's Prog.

Have you heard any of the live versions? There's one with Gabriel on "Live at the Rainbow" if I remember well, and one with Collins on "Seconds Out". Both are more powerful at the final sections, so they might fix the song for you (though the middle "funny" section is made worse for my taste, specially the one on "Seconds Out").

Not sure, every part is great and I would find it really hard to choose one I enjoy better, specially if I were to listen to it isolated. Perhaps if I listen to the song again I might make a choice more easily. If it could be a couple of parts together, I guess it would be the last 2 or three parts, just after the "funny" section.

Apocalypse for sure... Bloody amazing part. The whole Supper's ready is great though.
