Horny

So here's a brief example of why Horn is an ace producer.

In the epic "We Can Fly from Here" there are two big choral moments in which it becomes clear the band is singing about dying.

Other producers would have avoided it because of the skit with Christopher Walken on Saturday Night Live. But Horn goes straight to the symptom and PUTS A FUCKING COWBELL on top of the mix, a la "Don't Fear the Reaper."

Just to make sure you know that they know. Sincerity. Through irony. It adds this uneasy humor that is surely part of dying.
