->Not one short, or even medium-length song, except for one blessedly tight two-minuter right at the end [[note]]As it turns out, this was merely a reprise of the nine-minute song "All Around the World"[[/note]]. This isn't new, exactly. They've recorded songs like this before - [[Music/WhatsTheStoryMorningGlory "Champagne Supernova"]] was eight minutes; [[Music/DefinitelyMaybeAlbum "Rock 'n' Roll Star"]] spends its last two minutes just blasting away. But it's one thing to do it on one great song on a classic album and another to expect your fans to have spend seven minutes listening to something called [[WordSaladLyrics "Magic Pie"]].

->It's eight minutes long and it feels like eight ''days''. Like, yeah, their classic songs like [[Music/MasterofPuppets "Master of Puppets"]] were long, too, but "Master of Puppets" had ''parts''! [...] It had a new hook every couple minutes. ''This'' song has zero hooks, so there's ''zero'' reason for it to be this long! There's zero reason for the ''album'' to be this long! 75 minutes?! You couldn't make ''any'' cuts?! "Purify" had to be heard?!

->I think a number of rock classics fall into this category. For example--and I know I'm going to get into serious trouble with the Led Zeppelin people for this, but I need to get it off my chest--I sincerely believe that "Stairway to Heaven" would be a much better song if they cut maybe 45 minutes out of it.[[hottip:*:For example, they don't need the part about [[{{Mondegreen}} "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow."]]]] I also feel this way about "Layla" by Eric Clapton (both versions), "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, "American Pie" by Don [=McLean=], "Taxi" by Harry Chapin, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procul Harum, "Another Brick in the Wall" by Pink Floyd, and of course, "Hey Jude" by the Beatles, some of whom are still singing the na-na-na part.
