Thanks alot for the interview!


IMO the re-recorind of Framing Armageddon is quite unnecessary. The 2 songs released on "I Walk Among You" didn't sound good at all, since it was written for Tim's voice. All the power was in some way gone with Barlow on vocals.
But when they release the box set I will buy it for sure!


you are right in some way, Tim was the origin voice for the "framing"...
but I think it is just about, completing the story and telling it in its complete with Matts voice...

According to the interview, he's been writing the material just as he would without Tim or Barlow, just like he normally would, and would allow one of the singers to put in their own two cents on it. I can see how he does this, due to Ten Thousand Strong sounding just like Tim's (not 100% though). On the other hand, The Clouding is no where near the perfection that Tim did on it.

cool interview. I'm thinking about making a poll topic concerning hearing all of Framing and Crucible Live
Like each album is like 45 minutes or so, meaning 90 minute set could cover it. Cut it up a bit and it could very well be less.
like most of the ambietic tracks in Framing.
