This ethereal soundscape is a bit of technical noodling to sign off the album. It picks up the vocal looping technique from Hunt and pushes it to its logical conclusion - a hundred voices working as synthesizers and percussion to create a song.
Thankfully, it’s not quite Justin Timberlake getting his beatbox on at the end of Rock Your Body. There are pulsating synthesizers interwoven with cuts of Alison Goldfrapp’s vocals to create a rich texture that meanders through Sigur Ros style atmospherics.
However, Voicething doesn’t seem to fit with the ‘80s conceit set out by the rest of Head First. It’s a lingering goodbye and perhaps a bit of a let down for anyone smitten with the rest of the album.
