Why is there already hate for The Dance of Eternity? I LOVE that song because it's so freaking complex.
Because it doesn't go anywhere and it's just mindless wankery. Yes, it's complex, yes it's kind-of difficult to play but not overly, yes it's but together 'quite' well, but it doesn't flow, isn't memorable apart from being 'difficult', which it really isn't and it's completely out of context on SFAM. It's probably one of my favourite 'songs' to play on guitar and I actually played it with my band, but as a SONG, it's just not good.
