That's Just Rank

S -- Falling (5.5mb mp3 from the band's label page)
This category is reserved for weird songs, ones nobody should really like immediately. Fans of Bjork will probably catch on to this tune pretty quickly, though. The transitions between sections are often abrupt and jarring, going from frantic minor-key intensity to near-silence and techno blips without warning. It's so worth overcoming the listening challenges, though -- at 2:24, you think it's over, but then the last minute builds up to a beautiful, soaring sort of chorus that still gives me goosebumps a year and a half after I first started putting it in playlists. So maybe the category isn't quite right...nothing rank about this.
