Seventh Stranger and Finest Hour

Hi Katy, I have a quick question for Nick regarding The Seventh Stranger and Finest Hour... I noticed that the very cool repeating 'alert' sound that runs through Finest Hour is a lot like one of the synth layers on The Seventh Stranger that runs through the chorus. I was wondering if this was a subtle
homage to Duran's early work - or just a coincidence?
Thanks very much and keep up the excellent work! D.
