just saw this thread and figured I would throw this one in the mix
I'm not even a huge fan of this band.....they are fine... but since the day this album dropped this particular guitar solo has had an affect on me ...
it sounds to me like the soul of a human being crying and pleading for help ... and then them slowly giving up and succumbing to what was ailing them
beautiful and painful at the same time..... I feel Johns soul in this solo
the one that ends the tune is equally as haunting
