    Right off the bat, I am going to tell you what I found is not in The Moor and its not in White Cluster.

    What I found to be a cough is in Moonlapse Vertigo.

    I was just listening to some Opeth while browsing the interwebs one day and Moonlapse Vertigo came on. I wasn't even really paying attention to the music but at one point I noticed that something wasn't supposed to be there. I went back to the section in the song and turned up the volume and what I heard was definitely cough, I showed it to my brother and my friend and they both said that it was definitely a cough.

    So now that we are past the history behind how I found it lol, here is where its at in the song and link to the song on YouTube.

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RDBOKksyQw&feature=related[/ame]

    Its two coughs, one occurs right when it hits 5:04 and then at 5:05

    Its kinda hard to pick up but I'm sure thats where its at. If it is and some other people confirm it and put it up on YouTube, don't be an asshole and please credit me for finding it.

    Thanks

    The Still Life cough that everyone refers to IS in The Moor. It occurs during the acoustic bridge a few seconds before the line, "She is waterdrops over the pyre...".

    I don't know, I only heard that there was supposed to be a cough in The Moor, but they may be everywhere on the album !

    I didn't hear anything, it's just the echo of the snare drums I think.

    Yeah, what is in The Moor is definately a sigh in this, this sounds like the nasty phlegm ridden cough that Mikael was talking about it.

    I heard a telephone ringing in No Way back - Foo Fighters, and it's like goin on for 15 sec, annoying me everytime I hear it. but then again, I'm a psycho.
    off-topic off-forum yes.
    EDIT: the "cough" this thread is about, I heard every time I listened to the song, but I thought it was the bass, as it occurs alot in the song.

    Sounds like noise from the bass or guitars that sometimes occur when changing hand positions.

    Still life album is full of coughs and sighs, but the "sigh" in the moor give more feeling to the song, like a lament.

    It's really audible on The Moor because it's really the only thing you can pay attention to. It might be psychological, but that's the only thing I pay attention to.

    In The Moor it's on purpose. In Moonlapse it doesn't exist.
