Downplaying "Carnival of Light"

It's encouraging to see that Paul isn't completely hyping the dickens out of the unreleased "Carnival of Light." He recently warned Beatles faithful to not expect "another 'Strawberry Fields.'" Fair enough. Perhaps, then, he should avoid the kind of chatter that will only enhance expectations (i.e."The time has come for it to get its moment"). Almost a tinge of messianic rhetoric there, huh?

P.S. I know it's easy and probably unfair for me to say this so retrospectively. But, in 2008, doesn't "Carnival of Light" sound like the most hugely cliched and paint-by-numbers title for a piece of formless, druggy freakout music?
