-My favourite is possibly these lines combined with the little instrumental flourishes in the very exciitng end section of Left to My Own Devices:
"Picks up news about the sun and the working day has just begun..."
"He reads about a new device and takes to the stage in a secret life..."
-"Back to Trafalgar, one kiss, then I'll goooo....." followed by the key change in Up Against It.
-In To Step Aside, the ascending scale leading into the (also amazing) middle eight. I remember this moment being mentioned on Wayne's site. These kinds of scales are a recurring occurence in their music, I've realised. There's another one in the intro of Left to My Own Devices and a descending one leading into the chorus of DJ Culture (and possibly others I haven't thought of too.)
These are all middle eights, I think. I also remember noting a little while back that as well their trademark brilliant intros, they also have brilliant middle eights a lot of the time.CroMagnon wrote:It couldn't happen here - the build up to the final chorus (about 3:40 in)
The way it used to be - the synth and piano stuff leading into the duet section ("What is left of love" etc.)
This must be the place - "I'm listening to the words I thought I'd never hear again" into the final verse.
Me and my friend like the way it goes "Was that what it was? Was that what it was?"Monopoly of Noise wrote:Agreed. And the middle bit in that song is awesome too. .I don't need any more in my life...'Scapa Flow wrote:The orchestral slabs in the intro to Was That What It Was? That whole buildup is a beautiful Art-of-noisy thing.
