I can't help but think there's something hidden in the audio of Not The Actual Events. Am I the only one?

No idea, but I found it weird that the embedded track artwork JPG was a gigantic 13 MB file ...

Right? Very strange. And I ran that art through all sorts of analysis in Photoshop... and came up with nothing.

With the new political world order in the USA, I think it might just be the beginning... of the end... of the beginning...

in a JPEG, white takes up the most information and black takes up the least. therefore, a mostly white image at high resolution is going to be a large file. mystery solved. :p

Most of the information is taken up by white (a color without hue)... Incoming light to the human eye that stimulates all its three types of color sensitive cone cells in nearly equal amounts results in white... I got nothing.

The Gone Girl score was the same way. The artwork was tagged with some remarkably large artwork that needlessly increased the file size.

I've ran the album through various filters and haven't really found anything. It HAS been interesting to hear all the different layers though.

Okay this isn't about the audio, but what about the marks along the bottom right edge of the vinyl cover?

Are they a cataloging numbers ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numbers_in_Year_Zero ) like the 24.13.2 lines on this Year Zero poster?

Do they stand for... 7.4.4.3.4.4.3.3
Or... 744-4433 (doesn't work as a phone number with 800 or 888 area code)

Think I may have found something a bit odd near the end of Burning Bright, btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhDHda77qhk

Trent tried playing a whistle but ended up breaking it and recorded that
