I suppose if I were writing it out I would have a fast measure of 4 followed by measures of 3 -

1-2-3-4
1-2-3
1-2-3
1-2-3-1-2-3
(repeat)

That puts the drum and bass accents all on 1.
(I haven't heard it in a long time but that seems right...

In Behind the Great Beyond, after the guitar solo, when the vocals start, is it:

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 in triplet sets

or

1 - 2 (triplet, triplet)
1 - 2 - 3 (fast 3/4) ?
:o :D

Well, of course you could consider it in a number of ways, realy. I think of it as 6/8.

Then at points it drops a beat here and there so those maesures would be 5/8. Or, 11/8 if you just add it to the preeceeding measure. There are probably conventions for such descisions but I don't know them.

I hope musicians have freedom to that. I don't quite find the difference between a 4/4 and two 2/4...

Well that's the way the phrase goes but if I were writing it I wouldn't put another time signature change in to confuse things, I'd leave it as two measure of 3. but the way I put it above is what the drums and bass initially follow, so that's why I put it like that.

I could play the drum part... the keyboard part I could get the gist of but it's pretty complex and I never worked it out so I'd defenintely have to work on that a bit!

yeah, im leaning more to my second choice
1 - 2 (triplet, triplet)
1 - 2 - 3 (fast 3/4)

becuase thats where you really feel the drum accents and vocal entances when you count it out
