“Quintessence” contains some of the album’s most intricate guitar work, plus singing that is both guttural and undeniably melodic. It culminates in a torrent of wails and bellows, guitar, and human voice interpenetrating into cosmic sludge before giving way to an alien synth coda. Daunting stuff, but the sonic impact is tremendous.

Love this song, but I really wish the verses on guitar were all HO/POs. I know it's not as realistic, but it would make the chart so much more fun IMO.
