Hmm, well that was inappropriate of Shaun to say. Mark could have revealed some of that, but I don't think it was really Shaun's place...should have stuck with his excitement to be back instead of having to shit on the situation he wasn't even involved in
PS I think both Matt's would agree its much more than just a "job they did"
As much as I like John and Shaun, in my opinion the best record they made was Where You Want To Be. I just can't get in to the single. Which isn't to say "Oh the band changed". Dallas Green's recent interview made a great point - I think that maybe I have changed, in addition to the band.
And regardless of life, Matt Rubano is a fucking BEAST and one of the best bassists around for this genre. So stoked he's playing with PStump
Yes, too many stupid assumptions.
This is their career defining record. TAYF is not. It was not supposed to sound like it did, the production staff just overproduced it and that's how we got it. They've said that plenty of times before. TAYF was also written when they were immature 18 year olds. Now they are mature and they needed a record that stated their maturity as musicians and as people. And that's exactly what we got.
