1-Track Albums/EPs

albums or EPs that either consist entirely of a single track or whose tracks all meld to form one massive song.

I would've laughed if someone had told me that Meshuggah could make a 21-minute song that remained interesting and engaging its entire length before I heard this. Oh boy, was I wrong: this is the band's greatest achievement to date (of course, we'll see how their rumored 2011 album turns out).
2Il Velo Di Maya
Horizons & Gravity

A little-known band crafts an 18-minute track of incredibly epic post-metal goodness on their debut EP.

goes without explanation.
4Dream Theater
Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

I think this counts, the entire first disc is one 43-minute song. DT aren't my favorite band by any means, but this was still an incredible accomplishment.
Born Again

39 minutes of the darkest, creepiest, trippiest sludge you've ever laid ears upon. I still think it's a bit funny how France, of all countries, constantly comes out with some of the darkest stuff in metal.

It's an hour-plus slab of naturalistic Cascadian black metal. How can this not be good?

I don't even know what genre to label this as. It's Justin Broadrick pulling off a 50-minute song that, while it's not as good as some of his other work, manages to steer clear of boredom throughout most of its length.
8Old Man Gloom
Seminar III: Zozobra

A 27-minute post-metal monstrosity, the climax and solo that begins near the 21-minute mark is possibly the most epic, badass moment in my entire iTunes library. It's a bluesy solo over a huge, sludgy riff. How can that be anything less than fucking incredible?
9Swallow the Sun
Plague of Butterflies

Disregarding the demo tracks and re-recording included with the EP, this counts. It's 35 minutes of Swallow the Sun's melodic death/doom, and while it's not as good as some of their other songs, it's still a great way to spend half-an-hour of your life.
Catch 33

While this isn't as cohesive of a song as the others on this list, sometimes feeling more like a bunch of separate tracks than a single piece of music, it's some good stuff. Meshuggah's written better, but this, their most experimental work to date, still kicks major ass.
