Not saying it's poor, I just don't like it. I used to, but they've changed, oh how they've changed! Reason detailed below...

Their prices. The fact that you buy a brand rather than a product if you buy their product. The fact that they try to keep a closed standard, and require custom cables, formats, etc for their devices. The hype (there's too much of it) and how they used to force you to install iTunes if you wanted to just install Quicktime on Windows. :/

Off the top of my head, Symphony X retold the story of Homer's Odyssey in prog rock form, and the longest song in my library is probably by Dream Theater.

why is that funny

using extended definitions of 'song' to include any musical piece is not appropriate from an etymological standpoint

Poor media player, doesnt support all important files types, you have to pay more for lossless (although they did make ALAC open source and royalty free but I dont want ALAC), overpriced, poor labeling and probably other stuff I cant remember.

I might as well just use torrents/buy physical albums and rip them myself, use winamp for audio and wmp for video.

A song called "Octavarium" by Dream Theater. It is about twenty-seven minutes long. Has many cool bits in it. It is a story about a boy who falls into a catatonic sleep and wakes up thirty years later to find out the man he resented died. His father. He then falls back into his catatonic sleep only to be plagued by different more adventurous dreams that include Jack the Ripper and a statement Cheeche made one time. "Daves not here". Its practically a song about dreams.

Oh and it's also the self-title song to their album, respectively known as Octavarium.

Here check it out, you won't regret it. Octavarium by Dream Theater

Funny thing is though thats my interpretation of the song. What it really is just like an ode to classic/mordern pop culture. Some other stuff more personally pertaining to the guitarist.

More than just the Exorcist theme. Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells is long, and fucking epic.

44 minutes of glorious GY!BE. Incredible. Too bad it's only available through shitty live recordings.
