How important is crowd reaction to the quality of your performance? I saw you guys at Santa Ana and San Diego, and the crowd was much better (and so were you guys!) for the second show. Do you tend to take requests more readily when the crowd is more into it?
It's weird. At the time it made sense to me and was the album I needed to make but recording it was a nightmare. We were super rushed, I didn't feel like the performances were up to par, and we made a lot of mistakes in recording and time management. Anywaysssss, going back I would change some things but it's a snapshot of my life at that moment and it is a pretty honest record from me. So whatever.
It was my favorite Silverstein record at one point and helped me through some tough times. Thank you for writing it.
