I've been listening to the instrumental for Wu Tang's Triumph today and it really has a few smaller things I didn't notice with all the vocals, but it's damn well done. Anybody else have any particular tracks they like when re-examining just the instrumentals?

I much prefer the "Instrumentalyst" version of Dr. Octagon's "Octagonecologyst".

I don't have an answer, but I'm curious about what you noticed with Triumph.

There's a version of The Stones Voodoo Lounge without the vocal track. Most of it is better, sounds like a jam.

Kind of like listening to an isolated score.

I realized that the chimes that come in every once in a while are started and stopped 3 times before fully going, which is kind of cool. The first instance is at 54 seconds in. I'd do timestamps but they didn't seem to work on the vid since it has ads.

There's also a three note moment that sounds like it's out of a Spaghetti Western at 3:45 and it shows up shortly again but then it's gone.

I love instrumental versions of tracks, and wish more metal bands would do so.

While not metal, the instrumental version of Nine Inch Nails' Reptile made me appreciate the song much more.
