I understand the place in the story and have no problem with it mentioning the music player in the lyrics, it's just how it's introduced, this huge "MY MUSIC PLAYERRRR" moment.  It just makes me cringe a little every time although I will say that I'm not fond of that song as a whole and tend to skip it.  I have a similar issue with the "tell me is it true, bug was always you, finally I can reveal HOW MUSIC MAKES ME FEEL!!" moment in A New Beginning although I do like that song as a whole so I can live it.

That's one of my favorite moments on the album. I think it's a great buildup to what immediately follows.

The 'father is it true' part of ANB bugs me too, but more because a lot of ANB is a direct reference to Jesus Christ Superstar. Honestly it's merely an 'okay' song to me - it's the solo tripping at 5:00 that makes me love the song so much. :2metal:

Man, that's like one of my favorite parts on the album. I belt it out every time that part comes on lol. To each their own, I guess!

I have no idea why that would be.  I LOVE pretty much every aspect of that part of the song.

Yea, that's like the climax of the first disc and I absolutely love it.  Although I have one issue with it, which is the reference to BUG which I don't think makes any sense unless you read the website.  Well, I did so I get it and it doesn't ruin the song or anything, but I just find it odd to go that route with the lyrics when the story wasn't really clear about BUG.

Thatís cool that people like it, not trying to convince anyone not to, just explaining why Iím not so keen. Still overall a fan of the album though and still enjoy it 2 years on.
