What are y'all's favorite moments of this album? By moment, I mean either a general section of the piece or a precise moment in the album.
Personally, my favorite section is the first big climax section in Africa 1, Where the key shifts to Bb and this beautiful guitar melody appears.

In a more general sense, I would say out of the africa parts, 1 is my favorite.

Speaking of Africa 1, the rhythm in RTO at the beginning of the chant sounds to me as though they're saying "jungle rhythm! jungle rhythm!" over and over again.

I honestly think my favourite moment is the last twenty or so seconds of the album! It's such a beautiful climax.

I agree shenry, it is stunning. so many voices and guitars :) But for me the whole album is the best part, it is not something I can just listen to bits of, it has to be all 60 minutes.

I generally stop just before the Maggie Thatcher bit. But then, I think Beethoven should have stopped the 9th symphony at the end of the Song of Joy melody, instead of going on with the anticlimactic bit. Sonata form - ptooiee!  :laugh:
