Yeah, I hear you about the Mark/Tom having produced their fair share of records...specifically Mark. All I'm saying that it might be good to bring in a third party producer to spice things up a bit, you know?
No one can replace Jerry, but I think it's time they kind of move on and try someone other than just Chris Holmes and themselves.
Agreed. I liken it to the fact that you would never solely review your own essay before submitting it. Somebody else is more likely to notice things and provide input that you may not see but that will improve your work. This may seem out there but I think butch vig would be an awesome choice. He's done work with other pop punk acts (not like blink really fits that mould anymore) as well as some of the hugest rock bands ever.
