|Engineer Bruce Swedien|
1. Check out how the song develops, with something new happening in every section and in every 8 bars of the verse. Either a new instrument enters or a main instrument moves to a new register.
2. Listen for the synth on the left side during the chorus. It's difficult to hear during the final mix.
3. Bruce Swedien is a master of ambience. Check out how each of the instruments are in their own space, from the synth pad to the handclaps to the guitars to the horns, everything fits so well. Especially listen for the parts where you can hear the reverb tails to hear how they fit into the song.
4. Listen for the percussion in the last verse around 3:10. Again, it's something that's easily missed in the final mix.
