Music isnt good just BECAUSE it's complicated.


Sleight of Hand isn't great just because its in a different time signature.

Hail Hail isn't great just because it has a lot of chords in it.

Complicated music can be good and simple music can be good, and being complicated is not a mark of quality.

I find it to be a song kind of devoid of emotion or feeling, the guitar I find to be kind of grating to my ears, along with Eddie's voice also as well...its a very in your face song but to the point I find it a little bit annoying, and Eddie's vocal melody and delivery i find to be kind of boring.

I do like the music on the bridge, it's pretty cool, but not as special as old Pearl Jam was. I still hate "Are you woman enough to be my man".

Its honestly one of my least favorite No Code songs...I like Who We Are and Red Mosquito a lot more.

I don't hate the song though I just think its ok

This is the single most baffling thing I've ever read on RM

There is a lot that can be said about a soaring chorus with lyrics about somebody dying.

It honestly seems kind of like gibberish to me and there is no emotion in his vocal performance that tells me its anything different <_<

Woah I'm not wading into the middle of this raucous debate that's for sure.

So basically, it's too complicated for you and there isn't enough warbling.

I've wondered about this line too. I think the song may be from a woman's point of view.

Always thought the bridge could be her reply/reaction to what he's saying. That line in particular is a feminist play on the term "man enough."

actually i've always thought/known this. The change in the tone of the music is perfect for it.

God I love this song.

Remember when they played it on Letterman and Ed was a totally different Ed than what we were used to? Fit the song so well. And the album.
