-Opening drumbeat that sounds slightly better than the drum machine used on Big Black's "Steelworker"!
-err.....uh, having a hard time thinking of what this reminds me of otherwise. Talking Heads? Meh, not really. Maybe that "My Name Is...." song that closes Pere Ubu's Pennsylvania? Nah, that's not the ticket. The bassline is sort of like the music that plays at the end of the "Macbeth" level of the original Star Fox when you fight that whirly bird machine guy.
-Synth tone around 2:46 - in what Tales From Topographic Oceans song have I heard that before?
