One of Steven's most ambitious vocal experiments in Beach Boy fashion - a nod from one Wilson to another - though the end section is built up from a separate idea by Chris, elaborated by Colin's double bass. This song layers thirty-seven sets of vocal overdub to create the falling, melancholy chorus. It expresses Steven's early concerns about the depersonalising effects of life in cyberspace. These days, he's a happy websurfer, but the song remains a strong band favourite.
