Talk:Album Lead-Ins

From This Might Be A Wiki

Hearing Aid does not lead into Minimum Wage. Just thought I'd point this out. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 23:30, 12 May 2010

Crank up your sound and have a listen. I heard no gap in between, with an audible bleed-over through Audioengine A2s and Grado SR80s. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 05:29, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
to the ear there may seem to be a pause, but musically there is no pause, and there is no actual pause either: right channel, amplified 20db. -- 05:59, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I just took Hearing Aid and Minimum wage into Amadeus Pro, for those of you who don't know what that is, a program that allows one to magnify a sound into it's actual sound waves. By the end of Hearing Aid, there is absolutely no sound wave activity. And at the very beginning of Minimum Wage, there is also no wave activity. If there is, it is far to small for me to see, and I have magnified it a lot. A LOT! -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 13:54, 13 May 2010
did you actually look at the screenshot i provided? if that isn't wave activity, i don't know what is. (about 4 seconds of audio is visible there, fyi) -- 18:12, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, that "ssshhhhhh" sound after the cymbal? OK, I turned the volume on max, and held the speaker up to my ear, and heard it. Hmm. Well, hats off to you, Antgeth. Once again, you are correct, sir, and I am wrong. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 21:05, 13 May 2010

Fingertips[edit]

Someone's going to hate me for contradicting this page again, but isn't Apollo 18 supposed to be played on shuffle, and the fingertips scattered randomly throughout the album? So they wouldn't lead into each other, would they? I think not. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 22:59, 13 May 2010

Furthermore, wasn't part of the idea of fingertips to not lead into each other at all? I thought they were supposed to be all as dissimilar and disconnected as possible... --༺𝄞𝄆Ⓠⓤⓔⓛ⎈Ⓓⓞⓜⓜⓐⓖⓔ𝄇༻ 23:09, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Shuffle aside, the songs are played only in succession live, and there is little disconnectedness there. -Apollo. 23:34, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
as an aside, i really don't think that it is supposed to be played on shuffle. they just designed it so that fingertips would make shuffle more interesting than on most albums. that, at least, is my opinion. -- 23:38, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
But even still, there is space between each song. What Suziessoliloquy said. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 23:42, 13 May 2010

No, we have not established that they do not lead into each other.

Oh. OK. But they don't. --DidgeGuy (आ ज) 23:43, 18 May 2010
eh?
Lead into each other. Have you not seen the evidence? ⬆ --DidgeGuy (आ ज) 00:14, 19 May 2010
while there may in fact be small audio gaps between the vignettes, i think it should be considered that some things are designed to musically follow one another... personally, i feel of fingertips as a continuous stream of musical ideas that are short enough that they function as a cohesive unit. whether this is relevant or not is debatable... tmbg has very few songs that literally connect, which makes me of the opinion that it's worth mentioning things like fingertips that have a collective identity. -- 00:25, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I meant by "eh." -Apollo. 00:29, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. It never even occurred to me to wonder if "Fingertips" would be included here because it's so obvious. --Self Called Nowhere 00:34, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
There's probably atleast 1 fingertips song that does not really lead into each other. And this is Album Lead-Ins so... -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")
But according to Ant's logic, by virtue of being a Fingertips song, each leads into the next one. -Apollo. 00:49, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
I don't really understand what you mean by this. They're all part of the same thing; why would any one of them be less connected/led into than the others? --Self Called Nowhere 00:55, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Linnell stated, "The project was to write a bunch of choruses and nothing else." Would choruses lead into each other? The fingertips are supposed to as unconnected, disjointed, and random as can be. --DidgeGuy (आ ज) 01:00, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Exactly! The separate songs are... well... separate! And no, not all of them lead into each other. They're just random. -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")
Ok, now seriously, have you two been reading anything Ant has said? I feel like his comment about their collective identity pretty much acknowledges that. Also the whole played-together-live thing, to toot my own horn. -Apollo. 01:09, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
I listened to some fingertips songs and one of them didn't lead into the next one. End of discussion! -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")
Oh. Well that certainly clears everything up. --Self Called Nowhere 01:34, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

If I Wasn't Shy/Turn Around?[edit]

There seems to be some sequence between the two tracks, even if they aren't directly joined recording-wise. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 18:33, 3 September 2019 (EDT)
