Mixtape - Favourite prog epics (over 15 mn)

Spleen Arcana's Mixtape

One of my favourite things in progressive rock is epic long songs. I think a song doesn't necessarily need a "temporal frame", it needs time to develop ideas and set the atmosphere. And what I like the most is getting lost in the meanders of the musical structure until the epic grand finale.

Here is a hand-picked selection of prog epics I love (from the 70's of course but not only). One rule : Only songs over 15 minutes ("The Black Chord" by Astra and "Salomon" by Arena last a bit less than 15 mn but they have to be included here, two of my favs!). Expect 32 songs for 9 hours of pure prog epicness, enjoy!

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the songs below on Spotify but they definitely are among my favourites!

  • Marillion - Ocean Cloud
  • Transatlantic - All Of The Above
  • Transatlantic - Stranger in your Soul
  • Spock's Beard - At The End Of The Day
  • Hypnos 69 - Requiem
