A month in now... Still unravelling this creation.  Word fail me.  I grew up with Yes,  then Rush. So,  well trained in complexology.   
They're knocking down my Towerblock.  Awesome.  The whole album is self referential.  Loads more to unpick. Loving this x

Fantastic song, but I still need to be on guard lest that *clunk* sound after the first vocals makes me jump. Which has happened several times. And that totally bonkers ending.

I loved Tower Block on first listen, though hearing the clunk for the first time in the middle of the night as it was, nearly caused me to have an accident. Lol. It sounded just like something hitting the tumble drier which is just a few feet from my bed! Christ! Lol. I love the whole thing and the ending is just spectacular, like ripping the song apart. Brilliant.

That clunk sounds exactly like the noise you get in a council block when someone chucks something heavy down the rubbish chute into the big metal bin (usually in the middle of the night). So much so that the first couple of time I heard Towerblock I didn't realise it was on the CD...
I probably will be the good for nothing...

That clunk is _so_ real-sounding! I've no idea how he managed that.
