Hi gang, was wondering if any one knew exactly how Dennis produced the reverse sounding vocal effect on the second half of Thoughts of You from POB. It sounds like he's running the tape in reverse on a track on the left side (ala Twin Peaks), except for the fact that you can hear he's singing the actual lyrics 'all things that live one day must die" so it must not really be in reverse? I can't figure it out and I work in production. Would like to try this for a title sequence I'm doing. Thanks for any input!

I haven't looked into it too hard, but the simplest way to do that is to actually sing the syllables backwards so when they're played in reverse they are audible as words.

Reverse echo, I think. Same effect used on Spiritualized's "Shine a Light." Essentially you take the vocal in isolation, reverse it, add echo/delay, and then reverse it again and put it back in the mix.

Not unlike Feel Flows, too.

That has to be it! Thank you! When you described it I was like how did I not think of that, makes total sense.
