Imagine if they decided to take a few months aside and just bash out another album without overthinking it like a normal band, maybe a year after this one. I bet it would destroy 10,000 Days. Prob come out similar to Undertow, but with better production.
I've been thinking/saying this for years - I would love to hear what they can come up with in a shorter timeframe. Something perhaps more authentic and immediate, instead of some over-analyzed whatever that's gonna be totally predicable and frankly irrelevant at this point.
They should know by now that overthinking/overanalyzing separates the body from the mind.
