ETB are brilliant at sustaining an emotion...I also love how they can be both dark and playful all in the same song. The Disease is a good example of something that could've been bigger, but just quietly fades away. Ocean Rain almost makes it to the very end...they could easily do a restrained version of that and it would be just as amazing.

Tomorrow Never Knows: I'm on a bit of a Tears For Fears kick lately. Could have had a mad guitar solo when the vocals get frantic, but it just builds and gets quiet again. Really matches the lyrics.

It's a great point...I've actually thought the same thing. The opening of the song is so incredible that you also most expect them to repeat it. For the past few weekends, it always seems to be playing in the car when I go grab a coffee. That combo really does the trick when I'm slightly groggy.

Sometimes, usually as I'm sipping said coffee, I do little imaginary setlists in my mind. If I were Muse, and wanted to win the crowd over, I'd start with Take a Bow and then go right into Starlight, with the piano.

That LCD Soundsystem song reminds me of a certain, subgenre almost, I think of it, which is to say songs that simply maintain a constant space throughout. It can be good.

Heroes by David Bowie. The afforementioned Cuttooth by Radiohead. Stuff like that.

Plenty of Radiohead, especially the last album (Reckoner, Videotape).

Cuttooth




Even All I Need, although it does have a climax doesn't have one that's long enough. But I guess it doesn't qualify for this thread since it does have a climax.

no, I agree with that...

Faust ARP needs to be 2 or 3 times longer as well...

I've always loved I Might Be Worng but it never seems to take off like it feels like it should...

I don't know if it was already mentioned but U2's Please (album version) qualifies I think. The single and live versions have the orgasmic crescendo that the album version lacks!
