I just can't disagree with peoples' issues of the timing of the piano playing more. To me, it feels disjointed absolutely. It doesn't line up, and it's disorienting and out of sync, much as is the case in the tide of battle. My interpretation is that it's a representation of precisely that emotion, of anxiety and desynchronicity. To me, that part wrapping up the way it does and all coming back into focus only serves to further solidify the tremendous job this track does multiple times of building and then releasing tension in an extraordinary fashion. I don't hear a timing issue, I hear an artistic choice and it pays off in dividends in the way the bridge of the song comes back together again. I keep coming back to this remix year after year, and I hope I'm not the only one.
