One update to the last post: there's one exception to the lurking sound of Madvillainy, and that comes near the end of the album, "Supervillain Theme," an instrumental. It's like the villains finally bursting into the streetlight, seizing the control tower, kidnapping the hero's girl, kicking dogs, walking tall.

For anyone familiar with Boards of Canada's Music has the Right to Children, it's the opposite of "ROYGBIV". Instead of a gang of kids walking happily down the street to the playground, you have a gang of villains marching into the White House to present their demands.
