What can be said that hasn't already been said. So let me try, after listening to this song for the 10,000th time, I realized that the song works so well because it has the basic arrangement of a pop song (verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus), but stretched for 18 minutes. When compared to songs like "Supper's Ready" and "2112", CTTE just has a better flow than those songs, and i think that the basic pop structure is the main reason for it. Besides that, I don't know what else to add, we all know that the instrumentation and the vocals and just everything is perfect. You've heard it 10,000 times, and now you can play it as a full band 10,000 times.
