I love this song, I don't have a favourite song but it is probably up there, the intro, everything, it's so beautiful. I really wish that I could play this song with someone or I could see it performed, I know AC only really perform new songs live but it's just gorgeous.
i heard that the guitar scratching noises are sampled, because they really would be unnatural given the fairly simple guitar part. If you listen they seem to pulsate rhythmically and decay; a simple texture added to an already awesome song.
AC are fucking dope.
