    Listening to "With Twilight As My Guide" feeling calm and at ease and nearly hypnotized by the end.... Then this comes on and I crap my pants.

    The riff is just so evil and powerful, I can't stop listening. Can't say that I like the rest of the album as much as I loved their earlier work, but it's still reaaaally good.

    This whole album (and especially this song) has a definite, classic 70's prog rock feel. The ghosts of ELP and Yes abound alongside Pink Floyd and King Crimson.

    it is the best song on octahedron [yada yada] but you could call it a leftover riff from goliath and pretty much sum up the whole track
