To me, complexity doesn't necessarily generate interest. Inre Brown Eyes, it's not that I'm uninterested in what is going on musically; it's just that I think there are more interesting things in many of the other tracks on the album--which may or may not be more structurally complex than Brown Eyes. The complexity aspect to me is almost irrelevant (as it does in almost every FM track)--at least in terms of song structure.

But it's just one of those mysteries of art: no one can pinpoint precisely what it is that hits listeners square on.
