True enough, but when they incorporated things such as this in the past it was much less obvious and much more conducive to the song. But admittedly in the grand scheme of the album not a big deal

FAD suffers too much from the in-between stages of maturity and immaturity and at some points comes off as somewhat pretentious. This is the opposite problem of TTTYG.'
