Who says the Christian music scene can’t have 11-minute long epic pièces de résistance?

No one!

Granted, in my experience they are few and far between.  Okay, this is the only one I’ve found to date.  But Relient K gets major artist points for telling the story of an man’s entire life and conversion while holding your attention for over three times longer than most of the other songs on this record.  And they do so with few bumps along the way.

It would be really super cool to see some mainstream Christian artists taking that kind of risk.

(If you find it slow at first, things really kick into gear at 1:17.)
