Nina Hagen's incredibly emotional, tongue-in-cheek operatic singing at the end of "Naturträne."

Jon Hassell's haunting and inimitable trumpet sounds on any Eno, Talking Heads, David Sylvian, or Tears For Fears collaboration.

The way the 'tron sounds during the chorus "I Talk to The Wind" by KC, as well as the flute/guitar lead. That particular song transports me to a late summer/early fall day in 1969 (despite being born in 1988), laying in a wheat field and watching a cloudy sky roll by with the sun dipping through on occasion. Something about the production of that particular record is like the apex of the prog archetype for me.

The random noises in "The Gates of Delirium" and "The Revealing Science of God"; particularly the steel guitar sounds that reverberate/wah in and out before "You move fast...you tell me..." etc.

The way the low-end snaps in during the first "Now that you're fine now that you're whole..." in Close to The Edge just before the off-time vocals "My eye eclipsed with..."; Squire's/Bruford's groove here is godly.

Pretty much all of "Supertwister" by Camel, especially the flute solo. I think I've waxed nostalgia in another thread about how that part makes me feel like I'm looking out a window on a mid-winter's day, sipping a hot beverage and having existential orgasms LOL.

I'm going to have to come back to this thread!

Hypnotic state of reality - offering glimpses through which you'll see - the secrets kept from humanity - and secrets they will always be...
