The Usual Black (1:59)
Marko: acoustic & electric guitars, percussion
Ville: fretted bass, clarinet
- Another instrumental track, the middle part after the clarinet
solo is perhaps the most intimate section of the album.
- The anthemic main theme melody was written on guitar. The variation
of the melody in the B section was written on keyboards and it is very
unnatural to play with a guitar.
- The clarinet solo may have something in common with the
synth solo in Universe's End.
- Ville actually played some percussion for this song
(not credited), the silent ride cymbal behind the solo was
played by him (his only percussive contribution, excluding
the bass work).
