5 stars When I hear 'In Held Twas In I', I hear one of the best epic songs out there. I also hear a 'Paul Is Dead' rumor in this song too. It's in the 'Autumn of my madness' segment. First, you'll hear a car horn, then you'll hear ambulences, people crying, policemen yelling, and someone yelling 'Paul! Paul! Paul!' This song does have very Beatlesque features. McCartney was supposed to be dead in November in 1966 in London where this band has originated. So it seems that they made a song about McCartney's death. I'm surprised that this (In Held 'Twas In I) is a top-50 psychedelic song. Because it starts out with a heavy bass-line, gregorian chants, and eastern instruments. Then it goes into a monolouge and into a vaudville-London hall song. And then there's bells, whistles, beating drums, a great harpsichord solo, soulful lyrics, and a guitar-orchestrated grand finale!
