You don't think he wants to shift units? Betcha he does. I'm sure it's fun and he has a ball doing what he loves, but make no mistake, he wants to flog his wares too.....and if he doesn't then his record company certainly does.
No doubt he was aiming for a different sound. Bands have used different studios/engineers/recording techniques/producers for this very purpose long before this current venture.
I'll tell you the one thing this thread has done.......now I'm gonna have to buy this album. Not a huge FF fan, but this debate has sparked my interest in the album.
Now who said there was such a thing as bad publicity? Clearly I am a sales and marketing exec's wet dream!!
