A big sound for a potentially huge album.

It's blatantly not Knights of Cydonia =P (Knights of Cyndonia was a shit song >.>)
I'd say it's a direct cross between the two. There are some points in there where I was like "that's so Rascals" such as the intermittent guitar segments and the lashings of reverb...
Love it. Woot!

I wasn't saying it was Knights of Cydonia, you have to be an idiot to mistake the two.
It does sound a awful lot like it though with the the harmonic vocals and the whirring guitar.
