Tracking was really strange for this album. I do love the sounds that Joe captured, and I definitely enjoyed the playing some of the tracks. I am happy with most of what I recorded, save for a couple of bits; but bands are indeed all about compromising with the other members that do round out the collective group, which can be exhausting in a completely democratic situation (there can never be 100% consensus 100% of the time).
Some of my personal recording highlights of this day include recording "My God", "9000 Reasons", and finally hearing "...(the Emissary)" after almost 7 years of it kicking around in the ether.
I was exhausted after this day...it took me around 12 hours to do all of my tracks and spent way too much time on some extraneous bits that I thought were huge pains to get stuck on considering how small they were.
