it's not that I dont like it...in fact, I love the last minute and a half. But, I think there is some serious overraction on these boards. Yes, everyone is involved and I think Lillywhite took an ok song and made it really pop.
But, I also feel that they keep recycling this kind of song for the radio...American Baby, FTWII, You and Me and now Mercy and Gaucho. I think that's why so many non-hardcore fans tell me that this band's songs all sound the same. Not that all of those singles have the exact same meaning, but the singles have become too fluffy, IMO.
That said, the ending does create a long-awaited nostalgia of the early years.
