A plaintive, soaring intro suddenly cuts into a plodding cut-time harmonized section and a much better melodic section. This quickly switches to a "meh" verse and a much better pre-chorus before breaking into a pretty good but repetitive chorus.

Back to the grating cut-time harmonized section, which leads into a better harmonized break and an extended percussive break. This leads into a boring, by-the-numbers harmonized section before a reprise of the melodic section from the start of the song.

Another round of verse through chorus and it's back to the annoying cut-time harmonized guitars and the better melodic bit before an abrupt ending.

Sorry, but this one's filler. There are just enough good bits to hang onto a 6/10.

Contains some of the best bass work from Harris. The mid section features all instruments in perfect harmony which to me, is a magical moment. The song is a classic Dave song with a consistent rhythmized riff as the lead (think Still Life and Charlotte the Harlot). Great track and a 10 from me

As you scream into the web of silence...
A soft opening leads into a melodic yet powerful bit of riffing before Bruce comes in, singing in a style he hasn't used outside of this song. The pre-chorus and chorus feature his soaring high vocals though, and the instrumental section is pretty damn great. As simple as it all is, somehow it's still awesome. 10

These Murray's intros are pure magic. So melodic song with an amazing tempo and rhythm/riff. The pre-chorus is better than the actual chorus. Nice verses. The twin-lead guitar harmonies are superb and fits the futuristic theme of the album perfect. My only complaint about this short rocker is why do not have a solo/s (a solo from Dave at least). A lost classic, hidden gem, one of the most melodic songs of the band along with TRATB. The instrumental work on the song is incredible. 9/10.
