I think Tim is more yin, with musical flourishes, Sinatra sensibility, and hooky tunes. Neil is more yang with the undercurrent of torment, minor chords, pragmatic interpretation of the world.

Now, each brings his own balance of yin and yang to his solo music - no question it is balanced. I'm posting regarding the bros in comparison to one another.

I've always had Neil as the more melodic one while Tim brings the rhythm. Of course, they overlap but that's how I'd seperate them.
Neil brings control and subtlety to the music - that odd chord change that takes the song somewhere else yet still seems as if it has to be there. The 'other-worldly' melody that always gets you in the end.
Tim seems more spontaneous, maybe creating the initial spark, getting a good groove going, more care-free about letting it go and seeing what's there afterwards. Tim's melodies generally seem more 'normal' (still good though!) than Neil's as if he's more concerned with the overall sound of the song than crafting it as meticulously as Neil.

Whatever, all I know is its always very exciting when you hear they are working together. They're both great in their own right but together they can get something that's more than the sum of their parts.

you've got them mixed up, that would make Tim yang and Neil yin.

for future reference, i always think, 'yang' ends with G for 'good,' and 'yin' ends with N for 'not so good.' Razzer
