I agree they do have a lot going on... but it's usually with restraint. For example, take the intro and guitar line from "Leaving Song Pt. II". There's a back and forth between the vocals and Jade's guitar lines, during the verses before each chorus. As far as guitar tones go, I've always recognized Jade's guitar work from the tone of his guitar, which is distinct in AOD, STS, DU, and CL. Here, I cannot hear it so much.
I do like it though... but it's not at all what I was expecting. That might just be it. Time to listen again. : )
Still my favorite band though!
