* "White Blur 1", an unsettling haphazard mishmash of bell noises, creepy rumbling, and reverberating vocal samples. It's like the last 40 or so seconds of [[Music/{{Radiohead}} "Climbing Up the Walls"]], except extended to 3 minutes. (And thank God it's only 3 minutes as opposed to the usual 5-8.)
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5Zsn6tJ2MY "Window Sill"]] somehow manages to be the musical equivalent of UncannyValley, being subtly-off and unnerving.

* ** "White Blur 2" is even worse, consisting of nothing but a looped psychedelic riff interspersed by a creepy distorted laugh and occasional muted whispers, it keeps going like this for 11 minutes. You could've stuck it in a YumeNikki level and nobody would be able to tell the difference.

Music/AphexTwin: [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible Strange]], [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic brilliant]], and a master of ''[[NightmareFuel scaring the hell out of people]]''.

** Those same smiling kids are depicted on the song's single cover, although some of the fear is alleviated once you see [[FunnyBackgroundEvent the kid on the far left doing part of the Bloods gang sign]].



** Not to mention the song itself contains a ''[[CarefulWithThatAxe 34-second long anguished scream from the very depths of Hell]]''. The kicker? ''[[HellIsThatNoise Richard D. James himself is most likely the source of that scream]]''. God have mercy.
*** In fact the demon serves as the inspiration for [[Manga/SoulEater Asura]].

* Run "Equation" through a spectogram. Sweet Dreams....
* The aforementioned hideously ugly woman from Chris Cunningham's music video of Windowlicker. Her face is actually based on a sketch by Creator/HRGiger, which, you guessed it, is called ''The Windowlickers''.
* White Blur 1.

* Run "Equation" has a portrait of Richard's face near the end that can only be seen if the song is put through a spectogram. Sweet Dreams....

** The song itself is scary. Let's put it like this: it made ''MyNeighborTotoro'' scary. (Sadly, no Website/YouTube link since the US has a copyright block on the video - so [[http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members/members_videoinfo.php?v=9421 here's the AMV page]]).
