Well, not just backmasking, but I want all the little tricks & riddles musicians use to be covered in this thread. Of course there is the famous Beatles "Paul is Dead" episode: holding a mirror upto the Sgt.Pepper's album revealed the sinister rumor. And then Judas Priest's 'Better By You, Better Than Me', when played backwards, instructed (allegedly) listeners to "Just Do It". What they are supposed to do is never spoken; mow the lawn? drink a beer upsidedown? Two teenagers came to the logical conclusion of 'double suicide', and almost destroyed the heavy metal community in the process. At a time when the music industry desperately needs young folk to sit & listen (and buy the album), you don't hear about any of these puzzles being made anymore. What studio could resist the thought of thousands of teenagers not downloading, but buying a physical album and listening to it again and again, trying to decipher the message in the music, or in the album art. Are there any artists doing these kind of thiongs nowadays? I'm thinking I might be able to write a few albums. that when combined Voltron-style, will make the riddliest riddle ever written! I wonder how many kinds of cryptography the 'net generation will not be able to hack in the first 6 months??
