That is a damn good way to put it. I remember thinking something similar when I first listened to this album in full. I find that it's top-heavy not necessarily because the latter half is bad ("Change Your Mind" is one of my faves), it's just that the front half is so great and just works so well together.

This is probably the album I return to most in their discography. Such a phenomenal record. I like what you said about the simplicity of "Mr. Brightside" and this record, really, compared to the rest. I guess it's that, coupled with the nostalgia for singles like "Brightside" and "All These Things," that make me return to this album so frequently.
