    General CommentDoes this actually have any meaning behind it with regards to the plot? The length of it suggests that a few years have passed between The Acid Queen and Do You Think It's Alright?, but does it mean anything else?

    General CommentI think this instrument represents an acid trip after a visit by the Acid Queen. But the theory that it represents passing time works as well.

    General CommentHey mainxzibit6789,
    Why don't you actually do some research before you make a blatant statement. This song has been performed many times live and is even released on the 30 years Max RnB album set. I don't know whether it is ignorance or stupidity, but either way, your wrong.

    General CommentThis is about Tommy's reaction to the acid given by the acid queen. It takes a long time to wear off, supposedly, and I imagine his parents were very unhappy.

    General Commentit's an underture, its Townsends way of trying to incorporate Operatic elements into the album, its more of a reminiscent flashback, so the Acid Queen could have helped in some way
