The Ocean: the low point of the album, and poorly placed. Yet still a good song, and indicative of the atmosphere the band would later master.

Ah, The Ocean. Nice, but easily the weakest song on the album.

I feel like I'm on the docks when I hear it.

Larry was trying to drown The Edge, who wanted to make the song more of a soundscape.
