** [[ZigZaggedTrope ZigZagged]] in regards to Ace, since he's replacing Murdoc. A lot of people hate Ace for that reason, but since it's Murdoc, a lot of people love him for that same reason.

** To a lesser extent, Ace. He's loved for the most part, but some find him an unnecessary addition. Then again, it goes hand-in-hand with Murdoc's status as a Base-Breaking Character, since Ace is ''especially'' loved by fans who either feel neutral about Murdoc or outright hate him. Then there are those who feel Ace is being better-utilized here than in the base-breaking [[WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls2016 2016 reboot]] of his home series, where he and the rest of the Gangreene Gang have pretty much been shunted to the background in favor of newer villains.

* TheScrappy: Murdoc is commonly despised for his [[KickTheDog reprehensible treatment of 2D]] and [[JerkAss overall dickish behavior.]] This is especially true on Tumblr; when Murdoc was sent to jail, an ad campaign popped up for freeing him out. Tumblr’s response? Set up a petition to ''keep him in!''

Added DiffLines:

** Was it an interesting idea to temporarily have Murdoc arrested and replaced with a ''[[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Powerpuff Girls]]'' character? Or was it an unnecessary plot point? Keep in mind that we don't know the entire story line of the album yet and that it typically boils down to whether someone likes Murdoc or Ace more.


Added DiffLines:

** Ace, to the point where some consider him an improvement from Murdoc (if only a temporary addition). Helps that he's from [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls a cartoon many fans of the band grew up with]].


Added DiffLines:

*** The content we've gotten so far from the upcoming ''The Now Now'' album is also winning back the fans, especially with the "Humility" music video and the inclusion of [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Ace]].`

** "Hallelujah Money," the first song announced after a lengthy hiatus, split the fandom wide open, primarily regarding its politics [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement (which we won't go into much detail other than saying they're controversial)]], but also regarding whether or not the music itself is actually good. It's either a clumsy and disappointing first step after a 6-year absence, or a refreshing and bold statement that's well worth the wait. [[FanHater The comments complaining]] [[NoTrueScotsman about each others']] [[FlameWar responses certainly]] [[ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow don't help.]]

* KudzuPlot: Phase 3's storyline is generally agreed to be a borderline incomprehensible mess of various plot threads that get introduced and dropped at a moment's notice, all strung together by an incredibly UnreliableNarrator. This was largely a result of Phase 3's TroubledProduction, which resulted in several instances of RealLifeWritesThePlot that forced the storyline to be dramatically altered multiple times. Eventually, it was all hurriedly resolved secondhand by one of Murdoc's radio broadcasts... which was eventually retconned by both the [="DoYaThing"=] video and the early storylines of Phase 4, rendering almost the entire Phase moot.



* SugarWiki/SweetDreamsFuel:
** The entirety of [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments "On Melancholy Hill"]], save for [[LastNoteNightmare the very end]].
** Martina Topley's absolutely ethereal bridge section on "All Alone".
** "Empire Ants". Everything from the intro, with 2D's beautiful, gentle vocals, to Little Dragon's verses when the song starts picking up. [[https://youtu.be/sY20vr7-MpM "To Binge"]] too, for much the same reasons.



* WatchItStoned: Reportedly, listening to "Empire Ants" while stoned (especially when the song starts picking up before Little Dragon comes in) [[http://i.imgur.com/HSL6CPr.jpg is a transcendent experience]].

** With the [[UnexpectedCharacter unexpected appearance]] of [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Ace]] as the replacement bassist for Murdoc, jokes about how he left his universe after [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 his reboot]] sucked so he could perform in another universe's band ran amok.
