    it's not how long the song is, it's how you play it...

    yeah but to compose long songs also requires much more skill as a musician and a composer,

    I like long songs better...I have alot of patience for music and you really feel like you're a part of the song if you can sit there and listen to all of its movements, and lyrics. they all tell a story and they just seem to have more weight when they're longer.

    Its hard to explain haha

    I like this too. I think it kind of allows me to get more absorbed into the song if it is longer -- especially with Opeth.

    At first I wasn't sure about how long Opeth's songs were...but I've grown to love them. They way they put them all together and the riffs and everything...it's all just friggin amazing.
