He's always been a little heavy handed with subjects, but I think his gripes were at least a little more charming back in the day. Today, he comes off like an old grump (example from his latest album).

Add to that his rightist views and public blunders that he doesn't seem very apologetic for, like calling chinese people subhumans.. it's like the sullen romantic personae that I think a lot of people viewed him as soured a long time ago.
a lot of that "sullen romantic" was done with a wink and a nudge that I think even escapes some fans
Just another marketing ploy

Are beehives and ant colonies unnatural? Cause they cooperate on a level we could hardly dream of.
