Ah, yeah. I'm actually one of the guys who don't think that all the "über-epics" are superior to the shorter songs in every way.

Well I'm a huge fan of the shorter songs. I appreciate a well constructed, concise song just as much as a 20+ minute epic.


I kind of laughed lightly at this, because it's like the two rebels of the thread would just be average joe short-song-lovers anywhere else.

DT's fan base is a cool thing.

I'm excited to see the results of these whenever they are posted. I mean, we have so many favorite/least favorite album/song/movements threads, so it will be nice to actually see numbers to represent the songs.

You're way off. The fact that I enjoy many short DT songs as much as their long ones doesn't mean that I'm a short-song-lover at all. It's just that the general consensus of the DT fanbase is that longer songs seem to have a better reputation than shorter ones. There's nothing rebellious about saying "I like this 6-minute song better than that 16-minute song".
... And you ask me: "Where's my hairspray?"

By the way I'm aware that the deadline is now gone but I've been mentally busy preparing for exams. I'll try and get final results posted up tonight though :)
