Hey! You're awake!

I'm not talking full songs here, but rather those little moments in each song that you always seem to stop whatever you doing to reflect upon whenever they happen.

For me, these are the standouts:

"Say what?"

Are we all that we're meant to be when we're home, boy!

1! 2! 3! 4!
Things keep gettin' heavy!


Sail away!
<that little dance segment about halfway through this song>

I! I! I! I!

<drums in the back of second chorus of Ih-Ah!>

<sudden break in The Way Home>

We are numbered!

Hey! You're awake!
I'm free!

Well? Give us yours.

I broke it down per song, since there's something in each that gets to me:

-When you hear the siren in Addicted after the last verse, which is the same siren the song starts with.

-The moment Universe In A Ball really starts going (when the bass kicks in).

-The last "We...love... YOUUUUUUUU!!" scream at the end of Bender.

-Most of Supercrush, but if I have to pick something specific it'd be the bombast with which the choruses start; the music more or less stops, Dev screams 'OH!' and then it explodes in your ears. One (well, several) of my favorite moments of the album.

-Anneke singing the Hyperdrive choruses.

-The opening solo of Resolve; actually the whole lead-up to the "We rise" part.

-The end of the first chorus of Ih-Ah, where you can hear the reverb building up on the high background vocals.

-The transition into the first chorus of The Way Home; also the vocals on 2nd and 3rd chorus deserve a mention here.

-Anneke's adlibs near the end of Numbered; also love the outro with just her vocals.

-In Awake the line "Oh.. sooner or later it comes", Anneke's background vocals during the "NOW DECONSTRUCT" part, and the transition into the trance-y part.

Absolutely this.

Though there are plenty of moments.

I was admiring Anneke's vocals on Numbered while driving home from work last night, something about driving through the haunting fog of Twin Peaks with my windows rolled down blasting it was special.

Here's our defense...hero's defense, heros left you to die.

I'm going to do what swervedriver did...

1. The "om!!! om!!! om!!!'s" or just the chorus in general.


3. Segue into the last chorus with that cool...sound

4. Anneke's enchanting voice in the verse and the heaviness of the chorus...

5. The choruses

6. WE RISE!!! and the chorus

7. Ahhhh, the entire thing.

8. All of the choruses, Dev's vocals are just beyond amazing... :twisted:

9. Anneke's adlib and acappella at the end.

10. NOW DECONSTRUCT, and the more metal parts after the chorus with Anneke

I think these are my favorite moments so far by track, but it's always a different experience:

1. "Addicted!" -- The "OM!" bits and "THIS IS JUST A TEST!"
2. "Universe in a Ball!" -- The drums in the beginning and the cymbal/"SHIT" leading into one of the choruses.
3. "Bend It Like Bender!" -- That one super-digital note after "just suck it up!"
4. "Supercrush!" -- "YOU LEFT ME TO DIE!"
5. "Hyperdrive!" -- The vocal ad libs in the last chorus.
6. "Resolve!" -- The word "returns" in the chorus (really powerful for some reason), or the final iterations of "I."
7. "Ih-ah!" -- The whole damn song, particularly, "God, I love you."
8. "The Way Home!" -- Hard to pick a spot in this one.
9. "Numbered!" -- Dev's vocals in that arpeggiated interlude, as well as the rockin' gih-tars.
10. "Awake!" -- "...you're only evil," the entire "DECONSTRUCT" section, and more. Another hard one.

The first was at 1.23 ( or so ) in Ih-Ah!... it really just hit me flat in the face...
Second one would be the finale / last chorus of Numbered! where everything just comes together... only topped instantly afterwards when the instruments just stop and time stands still for a little bit... at least it felt something like that...

There are others that came into play later... but the first ones from the initial "finally get to listen to the album" still pack the biggest punch...

When the vocals kick in during the start of Supercrush was pretty amazing, the chorus always gets me as well.
it's hard to pin point the most intense moment of "chilly".

Could mention many but right now for me in particular: Numbered from 2:35, through to the awesome darkness that envelops the track at 2:57.

Spine chillingly amazing shit.

I'll admit a little ocular moistening, yes...

I may have had something stuck in my throat when I heard Anneke on Numbered for the first time.
