Here's the thing that bothers me about the last several pages: you begin with that opening quote from Poe, asserting that her brother is responding to their childhood in his own distinctive way, which implies that she, too, has a distinctive response to it.

Yet, everything else is predicated on the assumption that she is marching in lockstep with her brother, that the album is _merely_ a response to the book - one, moreover, where lyrics, and no other characteristic of the music, are the important part.
