If you like epic sweeping album closers <6 mins, with strings, like U2's 'AIWIY'

If you haven't heard this band, you ought to, they are like a modern-day Pink Floyd. that's probably the best way I could describe them.

I find this album closer structurally and stylistically similar to U2's All I Want Is You, while that cello melody at the end really reminds me of that one Macy Gray song..

Both of these album closers are also identical in length, (6:30 versus 6:21).

Finally, I'd like to add this is probably the best music video I've ever seen..

Apparently, this was shot in Wasilla & Willow, Alaska. So beautiful up there.

I'd want this song played at my funeral, man.. Full string section & the works!

Particularly... from (4:11 minutes onwards..) you can hear the 'All I Want Is You' similarities as the track approaches it's crescendo.

  • In a room full of martyrs, who gets the credit?
Quite a bit shorter, and more Oasis than U2, but this has a similar structure to All I Want Is You and is, imo, very good:
