Can you name (without looking) which songs were recorded in the same studio and which were demoed in the same room and which were done 1/2 and 1/2 and which were recorded/demoed 100% not in the same room?
Honestly, I can't. I can only guess that "Love is Dangerous," "This is Home" and "MH.4.18.11" weren't done together, as they either sound like bland Angels and Airwaves or +44 songs.
I mean Tom agrees the distance had a huge effect....
What was it like making a record together after so much time away from Blink?
“I think we weren’t unified as a band. If we were to start now we’d be much more unified. Mark was in his studio in LA, I was in San Diego, everyone was so busy. Out of recording for a year, we were only in the studio as all three of us together for a total of one or two weeks. We only wrote songs together for three days. The rest was emails. But we accomplished it and that’s the big thing. The first song I sent over was Up All Night. People say that sounds like Angels on a Blink record. Well, no – that’s just me.”
