I'm glad they brought back the line Boyd used to do at the end of Grey Street. That was crucial to the climax of the song, but I do think it would probably sound better played on trumpet and then let Jeff solo instead of trading off. The line is getting played though, so I won't complain.

It's one thing to play the violin synth as a fill, but when he solos it kind of makes you scratch your head and say..."if it's important enough to make it sound like a violin then maybe it's time to get a VIOLIN!!!"
Could not agree more with this. But you know what, the new album thread just revealed the DMB still listens to a record label, so really nothing makes any sense.
