Where should we add a miscellaneous note on how the warning sound from the art is resistance website is used in this song as a loop? Should we just make a miscellaneous section as there are for other songs? Jgrizzy89 16:38, 4 April 2007 (PDT)
I would add it to the information at the beginning of the article and provide an external link to the AIR website.Leo3375 16:55, 4 April 2007 (PDT)
Also - now that we all know, or can know, what this song sounds like, is there any point whatsoever to have the link that says it 'apparently sounds like Down In It'??? Jgrizzy89 17:15, 4 April 2007 (PDT)
- I don't see what's wrong with keeping reviews. It's always interesting to see what people who aren't random fans think. Pomte 22:35, 4 April 2007 (PDT)
Does anyone notice that this song DOESNT sound like down in it? I swear music reviews from magazines or first time listeners should be blasted apart. Rolling Stone is notorious for taking text excerpts from songs and mocking them (which I'm sure they'll do with God Given on YZ) yet they give high praises to Bob Dylan at the drop of a hat. Even though some of his lyrics are "I got contacts with lumberjacks". Whatever the F' that means, but RS is willing to overlook it and give any album he puts out and any band with Jack White in it a 5 out of 5. Velvolver 07:22, 5 April 2007 (PDT)
That's EXACTLY what I meant, I just didn't want to say it for fear of someone thinking that it does... However, I think it's a cross between Year Zero loops and Closer drum kit loops... Anyways~ I think maybe the reviewer was just reviewing to get publicity... Jgrizzy89 07:24, 5 April 2007 (PDT)
- Well the radio station or magazine that said YZ sounded a lot more stripped down was obviously run by idiots. Any dumbass could tell there's a huge amount of sampling involved, and even if you never listened to the songs, based on the quote by Reznor that he did the album nearly entirely on a laptop that it was going to have a lot of loops and junk. And further more, you can't base an opinion on an album from one listening. It's like trying to individually judge 16 tracks at once, it's way to f'in much to absorb and clearly judge-Velvolver 07:40, 5 April 2007 (PDT)
Alright, now that I've heard the song the comparison is hilarious. Pomte 04:19, 7 April 2007 (PDT)
Similar bell melodies
Is it just me or does this song have a similar/the same bell theme/melody found in The Greater Good? Zeelog1 1:59, 3 August 2007 (PDT)
- They're very different. And "The Greater Good" has a kalimba, not bells.--Leo3375 08:29, 3 August 2007 (PDT)
It is different, but I did say similar, they at least sound like they're within the same group of notes. Too bad they make only true stereo now a days otherwise I'd just flip the balance to left or right so I could hear the melody in Vessel a little better. Zeelog1 23:12, 4 August 2007 (PDT)
anyone interested in discussion into the meaning of the song?
i initially thought this song was about parepin/pill refs too, but i am wondering if there is more to the meaning of vessel. it seems to me that some of the lyrics may hold a double meaning which struck me the other day. i know the word vessel has some symbolic significance in some spiritual practices. anyone want to fig. more out?
- lyrically, I think that "Vessel", "Me, I'm Not", "Echoplex", and "Head Down" are linked. Aeontriad 23:11, 24 June 2008 (PDT)
