That's what I was saying earlier, how can you argue that abstract is ok from the 90s but not ok from Teargarden
on? Why the double standard?
On top of it, that argument only points out the exact thing I'm saying in regards to the lack of growth shown by Billy as a songwriter. He wonders why what worked in the 90s isn't working now and maybe it's because people are smarter now and want songs with substance and meaning and not songs with lyrical gibberish that he vomited out in the back room of studio before he went to record the vocals.
