Im not just talking about particular songs, its too hard to pick a favourite!, but those moments within songs where you just go "wow".

For me, the biggest ones have been the Wait it Out Middle 8 section and outro, the second chorus of Tidal where ashwin's (sp?) voice is brought in, and pretty much all of 2-1 XD

Yes! I didn't expect it at all and suddenly the song exploded and I got some major goosebumps and had to dance around to it!

Another favorite of mine is when the music really picks up in "Half Life". It was so beautiful!

there are so many great moments in this album, but my current favorites are when the bendy string line kicks in duing the second chorus of 2-1, the round of little bird, and when the chatter from twestival comes trough in Half-Life right before the second verse.

There is a little little bit in swoon that makes me smile like a retarded each time ...

At about 30" ... a little voice humming and then a little stupid bird ...

i looooove this bit !

For me it's got to be the music behind the second verse of Half-Life. "Got a schedule to stick to, got a world to keep sweet."

But the round in Little Bird and the opening to Swoon were stuck in my head all day.

This gives me chills EVERY time. I also love the transition from being recorded in the shower to the studio in the second verse of BBD. Who can resist bare booty slaps? Laughing

The first time I heard it, I laughed out loud. It makes me smile every time. Smile

The beginning of Little Bird is beautiful. It always makes me look back up at the computer screen because it's so different and atmospheric that it shocks me after listening to Earth.

I also LOVE the Tidal bit where his voice blends with the chorus! Although I have to admit that I was a tad bummed that it wasn't used more (like in the trailer) and that the Tidal Piano bit from 12 seconds wasn't used either. Still LOVE the song regardless... but now i want an unplugged version of it too!

I just got my brand-spankin new studio headphones today and immediately listened to "Bad Body Double". I never noticed her humming in the shower in the beginning. That is by FAR my favorite. I also love the random acoustic guitar that's stuck in there. That's the least likely song to have that in there.
I also love her laughing in the middle of "Tidal"

1. Definitely the shower in the beginning of "Bad Body Double"

2. Middle 8 in Swoon

3. Middle 8 in Tidal

4. Middle 8 in Aha!

5. Tidal how she like laughs when the song slows down and stops.

6. The gameboy sounds of Swoon

Though it's not really an "Ellipse" wow moment, I definatly had mine today. I work in a clothing store during the weekends, and we have a certain radio frequency which is programmed by our main office in central Holland. They have a whole devision there with people who buy songs off iTunes to play in our store. And I couldn't believe it when I heard "Bad Body Double" today! There were actually people humming along and my collegues all asked me who's song it was because they liked it so much!

I was so happy! Immis songs playing in my store..incredible! I hope this means she'll get a little more playtime in Holland and the attention she deserves..

For me it would be:

The M8 in:
Half Life

And the Sound of metal clashing at the beginning of the second verse of 2-1

The end of Aha

' I hear that's a bitch to get rid of' In BBD

In swoon it's the getting down and dirty with the lotion lol!

Wait it out is everything lol

and Tidal I love the ending where it's like she screaming it out of a megaphone!

The bridge in First Train Home.
The "aaaaaha" parts in the Wait It Out bridge. Also the seemingly bending backing vocals in the intro.
The entire "how are you feeling?" stanza in Little Bird.
All Of Swoon.
The "aaaaaaa"s in Between Sheets.
The crazy opera part in Aha! and "hold me" in Half Life. Holy shit @ those 2!

The homage to Hide and Seek at the end of Wait it Out.
"Mmmmmmm maybe another" in Between Sheets.
The oh-woah-woahs of Canvas

Every part of BBD, plus the music at the very end when it fades out, I don't know how to describe it, but I wish the music would've been on the rest of the song.

& the beginning of 'Swoon', can't stop listening to the instrumental version of it =)

Actually getting my cd in the mail today was my favorite moment Razz

If I had to pick two instead of the whole entire album:
I really loved when Ashwin started singing in Tidal and all of BBD <33
