That is a good point, and I agree. Jim's basslines were more complex and with more note-heavy, but they followed along very closely with what the guitars were doing. I like how Kim's lines are kind of off and sort of out of tune with the guitars and stuff, and how they are very simple but really go good with the music. It's a nice contrast with the music.
