JR: A lot of the longer songs on your records take place near the end of the album but you chose to put a 17 minute monster (“Wings for Marie” and its counterpart “10,000 Days”) near the beginning of the record and surprisingly it doesn’t wreck the flow of the album at all.
MJK: Originally it was going to close out the record because of its length but we didn’t think it gave the record a really cohesive flow. On this album more than others, we tried to construct it as if it were one long composition. (pause) Yeah, the order of the songs was way different a month ago.
Those of you still a little sore after recent A Perfect Circle news, probably won’t enjoy this interview!
