So is this record trance or hip-hip influenced?

Hand-played? How many instruments are there that aren't hand-played?

I'm confused too - hand-played but also electro, isn't that just the sound of an electric guitar?

As far as I can tell, its official genre is hand-played Moroccan Trance Metal, lit on fire until it begins to melt.

God, this is confusing.

my guess is that he means organic sounding trance-like music...

We have a Fake Bono down! Our singer has a terrible flu and has been in bed for the last several days. So we had to cancel tonight's show unfortunately. Other than that, we're doing great and gearing up for the St Patrick's Day weekend and some other very cool stuff that we plan to do commemorating the 1st three albums being reissued (but more on that later...).

But getting back to the discussion at hand, I think the contradiction between electro and hand played is compelling and bizzare, but DL is kindof a strange dude. I do like the fact that he specifically mentioned "breaking new ground". I appreciate what they accomplished with the last two albums, especially HTDAAB, but I'm glad to hear that they're pushing into some unfamilar areas. Brian Eno did a really interesting record with James in the early 90's called "Wah Wah" that featured very techno/dance/electro ideas executed by a live band. Maybe they're working with a similar template? Who knows. Sounds like it's going in a very rhythmic direction so far...

I wonder... would "Mercy" fit on an album like that? Hmmmmm....

My guess is he's been hanging out with a certain hyperbole-prone rockstar too often.

Nope, sorry, we've already ruled that one out.

I took from it, he was talking about electronic live percussion.

As in, electronic drum kits vs. drum machines

Also sequencers vs. live playing.

The loop in 'Bad' for exmaple is a programmed sequence, rather than 'playing' and 'writing' to something like this in the studio, it's a live keyboard/guitar. Still electronic, somewhat more organic.

This could vastly improve certain chord progressions because playing to a set loop/riff/melody limits where your ear thinks it 'can go'. If Eno is jamming out some various synthology, then they could feel that the sky is limitless to an extent.

as for other elements, they could have eliminated samples and loops altogether and have chose to play everything live.

Also, although handplayed, rather than using the synthesized symphonic strings, perhaps they have chose to use actual string sections, if at all. Maybe rather than use a synthesized organ, they've wheeled out an old Hammond or something. Handplayed yes, but possibly more organic.

When Bono or whoever it was said 'polyrhythmic' I figured what he meant was a live drum kit (regular drums) playing along with various percussions , in non standard (4/4) time sigs and I hoped it was not drum machines. My guess is that it's not, it's something with a live feel, which IMO can only improve the sound.
