Tone of fantasy vs. sympathy

I have to admit I did a comparison yesterday on the actual tone, timbre and sonic qualities of Dear Mr. Fantasy vs. Sympathy. They're similar! That piercing screaming angry treble is indeed front a center on both songs. I had never really thought how similar the chords, sounds, and more importantly, the personnel involved were--Jimmy Miller of course being the main link, but the whole cast too. It doesn't mean Keith didn't actually play it (I think he probably did) but that is not even the main point of interest to me.

What is interesting is how, time and again, ideas and sounds (not to mention actual equipment, like guitar strings and amps) will develop within a scene and from within a surrounding and revolving cast of characters and then bleed together in the final products. In fact, it is silly to think they wouldn't sound similar, no? Goats Head clearly has some Jamaican feel to it; Some Girls has the snarling later 70s New York punk vibe through and through. Still, I'd be curious to know exactly what Mr. Mason said.
