I think they hit the perfect balance with PAGEANT, but the cool thing is, it matches the performance (bright and energetic) perfectly. The recording of FABLES (dry, murky and recessed) matches the music as well. I sometimes wonder what some of the FABLES songs would have sounded like with the recording job that PAGEANT got. -jar did you know that the strange clattering noise in "We Walk" on Murmur was Bill Berry and Mike Mills playing pool down the hall while Michael Stipe recorded his vocal tracks? you probably did, as i think that's not really a secret anymore. but i thought it was cool when i first heard about it.
