  1. Does Mike like the mix on Awake, since Kevin Moore has voiced a negative opinion of it? faq id: 207
    MP: Yes I do like the mixes on Awake for the most part. I think Kevin may have some resentments towards them because for the writing and recording of that whole album, he was “part of the band.” Then towards the very end of the recording, he informed us of his decision to leave the band. Once that was out in the open, we did not include him on any of the decision making throughout the mix because we knew he was no longer going to be in the band. So I suppose there are elements on the CD that he would have liked to have seen or heard differently, but he had to relinquish his vote as a result of leaving.

    MP: We definitely would never play this live without Kevin in the band. It was totally 100% his song and had we known he was about to quit the band, we wouldn't have even put it on our album.
