Okay, I know this is YMMV and everything, but the "Heartwarming in Hindsight" entry is well beyond the limits of "reasonable people can disagree about this". While it's true that those references to past albums are there and probably intentional, the song does not even slightly read like a fond farewell. It is unambiguously about SUICIDE. There are, as always, multiple ways to interpret it even having noticed that, but the one given in that entry is not one of them, indeed, it's so far out there as to be almost offensive.
