Telegraph Road

Recommended Posts

Sure. It´s a good song, I used to like it a lot. It was on the album that had a storm or something...? a strike? I got a bit bored of it after I saw them live but yes, a great guitar performance...

I think probably my favorite all time 10+ minute song would have to be Atom Heart Mother.

That's a good pick, it would be in my top ten for sure and maybe top five, but I'd have to say that Close To The Edge is just all around my favourite recording of all time, regardless of length.

Unsurprisingly I also forgot a great one:

Evie Parts 1, 2 & 3 - Stevie Wright :rockon: :bow:

(or alternatively the great cover version by The Wrights, which I am more familiar with)

Yeah, it is really just three relatively short songs that are over 10 minutes when added together. But, then again, so is Karn Evil 9. :grin:

Telegraph Road

An accurate depiction of the rise and falling down of western civilization

'Low Spark' adds enlightenment and is great

But "Telegraph Road' stands as the accurate description of disillusionment with this, the new era of lowered expectations

and the melodies are juuust perfect

A masterpiece

worth hearing over and over...like crimson and clover
