The timing of that solo is perfect as well, it just closes the album on such an unbelievable high note. And builds everything back up after the more somber mood of You Will Die in a Prison.
I Think I'm Gonna See You is definitely a close second though.

I think it ruins the mood of the song because only 50% of the solo works for me. First off, it's just a few notes within the minor pentatonic scale which does not always work very well when a song is played in a major key - but at the same time he changes it up to some high inversions which was more fitting. At one point in the solo he goes up 4 or 5 notes sequentially in the minor pentatonic which is what you hear kids playing all the time when they first learn that scale.

Personally, I find the guitar solo pretty unnoticable. For a while, when people talked about the solo, I was thinking "there's a solo in that song?". It nether makes nor breaks the song for me.

not surprising seeing as josh probably did just learn that stuff. he's come a long way from just playing rhythm, so for him it's impressive.

I don't know if I would say impressive, I've heard him do much more so I was a bit surprised at the outcome since it was supposed to be a big moment for the song. I would've brought someone to make it BIG. Regardless, it is a pretty fantastic album with just a handful of personal quibbles.

That's part of the issue too - if there would've been a big solo, the song would've reached another level in terms of memorability and overall emotion imo.
