Talk:Now Is Strange
Is is just me, or does this song rock? The more I listen to it, the more I like it! - Sir_ZMan
Is this song a parody of the band Spacehog? -robotdestroy
This song sounds WAY to much like Snail Shell. O_O
Actually, it sounds amazingly similar to Rat Patrol. I like Now is Strange more. --An orangutan
It sounds like a hybrid between the two. Really cool. Linnell sound AMAZING in this song. --INeedACrane
Sir_ZMan, you nailed it. This is a great song. Personally, I think it sounds "power", like in power metal, only not metal. I don't think it sounds very much like Snail Shell, a song I don't really like. I would definitely rank it among TMBG's best songs. Come to think of it, all of The Spine Surfs Alone EP is great. I really like Now Is Strange, I'm All You Can Think About, Skullivan, and Fun Assassin. The Other Side Of The World and Canada Haunts Me are cool too. The Spine Surfs Alone the song isn't the greatest. Indestructible Object is a great EP as well. Together they crush The Spine, which I think isn't that great besides (or should I say B-Sides ;) it's IO songs. --BlarJotunn(Special Page:The Wiki Realm Of BlarJotunn)
I'm glad they put it on a podcast. More people needed to hear about this great song. It didn't get enough attention on just the EP. --staplefish
Is it just me, or is this song very similar to Jethro Tull's style? --JelloB 01:14, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
Its just you
I don't know, there are some songs that give me chills, I think it's because they are filled with power. These songs are best listened to at max volume. I believe this song is one of them. Definitely one of my favorites. --Mr. 77 19:30, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Prequel To Rat Patrol?
Simply the sound being so similar makes me think these songs are somehow related, just waiting for another song to round off the "Rat Patrol" trilogy and tie up the loose ends. Something tells me that "Now is Strange" is the very first song in the trilogy, possibly ending with "Rat Patrol." But that's just my crazy musings, feel free to ignore me completely!

Isn't Flans doing the high vox on this, a la "Rat Patrol"? Doesn't someone else think so too?
- Yep. Added him to the page. --badqueso 20:26, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
