Alex and Bruce might be talking across purposes this week, but that doesn’t stop the We Have A Technical express. They’re each picking five intros…though they might have differing ideas as to what that means. All that plus a whole heap of live show news and reports on this week’s episode of We Have A Technical.

Another great WHAT…and I actually liked the different interpretations of “intro” in this one, might be interesting to occasionally pick “slightly ambiguous” topics on purpose for future editions?
But but but….no “One Hundred Years” from “Pornography”? Surely one of the best introductions (track or song beginning) to an album ever, musically and thematically? I still remember the first time my teenage self heard “Doesn’t matter if we all die…ambition in the back of black car.” I’ve been able to blame Fat Bob for all my life choices since. 😛
Good picks though, and dammit I have to go listen to the Pretentious, Moi? album again now, and pine for another one. Even Tool have a new album since then, ferchrissakes! 😛
Ooh that is a fine choice, but The Cure have a ton of iconic intros to their tracks to where you could do a pick five of just their material. Fascination Street, Burn, hell those first few guitar notes in Boys Don’t Cry, and so oooonnn.
@DS23 – very true. 🙂
Were I to pick a Cure intro using Alex’s rubric it’d be “Plainsong”, no discussion (though “Burn”, “The Figurehead”, and “Like Cockatoos” would also be on my list), for essentially the same reasons Alex described re “Disorder”. The second that wall of synth came in I fundamentally changed as a person. I fell into a home I never knew I’d been pining for and instantly knew I’d never leave it.
