One of ELO's all-time (and lesser-known ) greats, and possibly the most adrenalin-pu m p i n g acoustic guitar song even recorded. (As some others have noted, the sample is just beginning-of - t h e - s o n g backwards-ma s k i n g weirdness/ awesomeness, but about a minute more in... KABOOM!)

No sampling done when this tune was recorded....

Actually he says The MUSIC is reversible.. . . I used to listen to it, turning my LP backwards. Great joke! ;)

One of the best instrumental s around. If you ever get to Southern Maine, there is an amusement park, Funtown/Spla s h t o w n that has a ride called the Astrophere, they've used this song since 1977.

It wouldn't make sense without the preamble, its perfect just the way they posted it. The sense of relief when it gets to the melodic section would be missing without the tension and insanity of the first 60 seconds.

This song totally creeped me out the first time I heard it.

GREAT song, but it seems to me a better sampling could have been chosen? If I were hearing it for the first time, I'd probably wonder, 'what in H*LL is THIS???' For those reading this, you have to get into about the second or third minute before you get to the best parts of the song. Get it! Give it a listen!

This is one of the greatest rock instrumental s of all times! Anyone remember when this was the theme music for the Saturday sports show "CBS Sports Spactacular" ?
