    Yeah ! Some of those samples are definitively sax. It's actually everywhere on the album in some form or another I'd guess.

    i wouldn't call it a sample since it's trent actually playing it. it comes in and mirrors (heh) the guitar line in verse 2 and it's my favorite part of the song. wish trent would play it live Spoiler: since robin sings the verses, anyway.

    I actually can't stand TR's stated impetus and inspiration for Bad Witch, yet I really dig the little album.

    Aha yes, but I mean if you record a sax, and then modify that sound, twist it, modify it.. it's still a sample. That he made himself of course. Just the first definition of the word. Whent it goes through a sampler ya know.

    but what makes you think that was part of the process instead of just...playing the sax and recording it? what makes it a sample if it's simply a recorded part?

    (not being a dick, honestly want to know what you think!)

    Good question, I can't know that precisely lol. But some of those really distorted sounds and the way they repeat, the way Trent and Atticus have been making music on this Trilogy, makes me think they did more than just overlay recordings of sax in real time. Everything from the placement of the mic to the way it's processed by at every single point until the release, the sound could have been untouched and raw or modified, stretched, assembled, enhanced, deconstructed, a hundreds of times.

    I donít think many people are really spending enough time with these records to really get the depth of genius and subtlety that are in them. They are such deep dives. If mankind had a future in fifty years this is the kind of music they would be freaking out about, writing books about, dissecting and debating... I mean Bad Witch alone - it is a new kind of music. If you listen to for what it is and set aside preconceptions about what it is supposed to be - it canít be classified. Itís like nothing else out there.

    I canít get enough of it. We live in a culture that is so noisy and distracted that this kind of brilliance will never rise above it all to truly be heard, so those of us here needing out about it, and maybe some future better humans than exist now, are the only ones to get a chance to really appreciate it.

    Trent Reznor is just so unappreciated in our crappy culture. Itís a crime.

    The printed lyric for OAO is "Am I remembering you correctly?" but all I can hear is "Am I remembering you?" Am I...listening correctly?

    Also, OAO in general.

    Am I remembering you correctly
    Over and over again
    Iíve always been 10 years ahead of you

    What does this mean? Seeing one's own actions ahead of time with respect to lack of free will as per the Quietus interview? That's what I'm getting.

    I think it means that the person he was ten years ago was better suited for today. That he always feels like he is changing and whatever he is changing into always ends up being out of step with the rest of society. So he feels out of place and alienated at the time, but years later feels vindicated. Year Zero was ten years ago when he wrote this and it came true. The things that he is feeling and saying, maybe a decade from now, will feel much more relavent and clear, but it will be too late to be able to feel rewarding. The eternal plight of the gifted artist, the prophet, or the one who is awake. Shadows on the cave walls. Truth being told but not understood in the moment. Thatís how I take it.

    I like how you can hear the scream from I'm Not From This World at the beginning of Over and Out for the final time. Like it's escaping for the last time.
