Damnit, I think I like this version of SH now. It’s a lot more palatable when it’s not associated aith bad acting and sports cars.

 

That means I like every song on this album so far. :awesome:

Matt being weird continues. So a couple days ago The Algorithm Squad posted an enigma to solve and the answer was "Your mind is just a program" (it was rather difficult actually, took people days) Nobody was allowed to comment the answer and it seems Matt actually went ahead and solved it! LOL!

 

 

The poster at the back (yellow) has been photoshopped to say "Your mind is just a program" :LOL: I think it's really awesome to see Matt go to these lengths just for a fanpage !

Did Morgan play guitar for Something Human, or did they really use playback for Matt’s electric guitar part in the beginning of the bridge ?

That's a synth, not a guitar. And Morgan played it.

I didn’t mean the synth solo, I mean at the beginning of the bridge when it drops out and is just matt singing “And I need the touch...”

I don't believe there's any guitar there either. Pretty sure it's just keyboard.

The only electric guitar in there is that really faint bit in the mix just before the “big picture’s gone” line and that whole few seconds is amazing.

 

Edit: also I think I found what I want/have been imagining Algorithm or the alt. reality, dreamy ethereal version to be

maybe with some extra light synth stuff

Yeah I don't enjoy discussing interests with a racist.

 

Warnings were given, move on ;)

To tell the truth, the electric guitar goes on even after that line. You can hear it gliding right before the "gone" and playing a octave lower, effected with a synthy, flanger-like modulation.

It's a little hard to catch it and distinguish it from a proper synth, but it's there.

 

EDIT: Also, in the instrumental version of the song you may notice the bass getting crunchy at the end of the second repetition of the second chorus A section, right at the "I need something...". Such a cool detail!

 

EDIT2: Oh, and during all the 2nd verse there's a guitar/bass hard-panned right and mid-sided, playing a sort of bordone and following obsessively the ac.guit. part to strengthen the lower notes.

Why are the mixes of Something Human and The Dark Side from Jools Holland so bad? They were great for Pressure and Dig Down.

Maybe the last two are great because they tweaked them before posting the official videos on YT.

I'm sure it's going to be the case with SH and TDS, too.

Yeah but that doesn't make sense because they literally had several days to fix the mix, while Pressure and Dig Down were uploaded within a few hours iirc.

Can’t listen to the file on my phone, big sad

 

Is it studio quality or a recording from Taratata?

 

Edit: whoever’s uploaded this has had a bit of a mare

 

Edit 2: ok heard it and, other than the kinda cheesy ‘propa propa propa propa propaganda’ robot voice, that sounds kinda dope imo

 

Edit 3: add this to the list of things fans have described as heavy that defo aren’t tho lmao

To say that is a pretty different vocal style for Matt, he’s pulling it off pretty bloody well imo

 

That drop gets a little bit tribal if I do say so myself as well

The clip sounds great to me - reminds me of moody, History-era Michael Jackson (more than anything Timbaland achieved on Xscape, weirdly), but with a crazy hook at the end. The reaction should be interesting if it's released as the next single or gets a video - I expect some people are going to detest it :p !

 

I'm curious to hear how it fits on the album. The other tracks seem to complement each other well production-wise, but this one sounds like it could stand out quite a lot (especially after Pressure on the tracklist). Perhaps some of the hook's weirdness might need to return in a later track on the CD to balance things out a bit :LOL: ?
