If Toby had kept exploring this route, he'd just be another singer-songwriter making flowery acoustic guitar music, as opposed to the eclectic and unique avant-garde powerhouse he has evolved into. Inaccesibility comes with genius.
It isn't cheesy, it doesn't suck, fantastic song. Though, motW has a little bit of cheese in other songs, I don't really mind, it kind of comes with the whole prog rock / prog metal thing. It almost is like a staple of the genres lol
This is one of the most haunting songs ever recorded. Since I listened to Bath and LYBM this morning it's been stuck in my head all day, and I don't really mind that at all. I could probably listen to it for hours and not get bored of it.
