While there's much to enjoy in the hot melt of decay, in hearing notes descend in a spray of static, in hearing the sound hauled back into order by the scruff of its neck, nothing else really happens until a final trumpet-like fanfare of overdrive just before the song's conclusion. The sheer pleasure of performing. If you were an animal yourself, you could do worse than be a deer. Fury often leads to confusion and this bewilderment can feel staggering.
