Unnatural Selection Discussion Thread

So this (30 second preview of a) song has somehow missed having its own thread (unless I missed it)....we can't have that can we?

What does everyone think?

Anyone else instantly think of "The Winner Takes It All" for the first little bit of vocal melody?

Everyone keeps spaffing about this, but I think it's the weakest preview... Guiding Light is saved by the riff. The rest is <3

Really can't tell for this one. The Chorus is all right, but nothing special. Possibly repeats "I want the Twooth" too many times... But the reviews so far have said this song is all about a huge riff, which wasn't in that clip.

It's seven minutes long!

Any judgements made are utterly irrelevant at this stage .

Since there are so many tracks like that in this album, it’s impossible to categorize it into specific genre. Even a single song gives different impressions to each individual, so we decided a long time ago not to put ourselves in any boxes. Especially this album could be called random… well, the style of each song is extremely different from one another, and it cannot be described by any one particular definition.

I'm guessing we got 30 seconds of the "dramatic interlude" then! Does sound like it's about to kick back into a big riff at the end.

This song goes back and forth so many times, this preview is minimal.

I love everything about this except, the i want the truth (it's annoying, he sings it too many times, and he recorded himself singing really hgih, which ever since i noticed, everytime i play i hear the high pitch melody, and its really annoying )

Judging by what I've heard so far and what Chris said I'm thinking that this will be my favourite apart from Exogenisis.

I need to hear it all, but so far it's pretty awesome. I like the vocals in it most.

I'm not saying it's a weak song. We've only heard 1/14th of the track so far. But it's a damn weak clip. Probably the weakest after MK Ultra.
