Love the trees. If Sublimit weren't one of the best songs ever made i'd be wondering why The Trees wasn't the closer of the album

the end section sounds like one time when my monomachine's DSP crashed (or somehow malfunctioned?), I remember asking about it in the AAA thread but got a response of "it's the sound of the trees" lol

The Trees seems well liked enough. I guess when thinking about Untilted, people often mention the opening four tracks, maybe pick out Sublimit, maybe give a shout out to Iera, whilst Fermium and The Trees get forgotten a little (and it repeats progression processes already seen throughout earlier album tracks, so could be read as more predictable by that point). The Trees also has an intelligible title, and these tracks are prone to distrust from a stereotypical ae nutter. Untilted is also such a great album that some of the tracks unfairly defer to the album experience in full.
