"pretentious and obscure lyrics"
So if they are so obscure, how did you come to the conclusion that they are pretentious? It appears that we have another faux intellectual here. Just enjoy the music for goodness sake.
i feel they should have done more with the group singing part. It was very low in the mix. If it was more present, and maybe had it slowly fade out for an outro, it'd be amazing. iti'd also be a great live song for fan participation.
