Rep Power: 0 thaumo1 is an unknown quantity at this point
It goes without saying that they have the final say, but it doesn' mean I can't question their decisions and motivations. I'll try and find the link, but even Tomas said in a pretty recent interview that the ObZen art work was a mistake and wasn't what they were looking for, which begs the question why nothing was said at the time. A combination of Meshuggah-type apathy and label pressure, imo.

Do I think Tomas was happy with Re-Nothing? We'll probably never know, but when you go from an almost universally acclaimed great drumming/drumming tones album to sound replaced sterility...I can't see how. Fred seems very OCD with production, to the detriment of recent albums imo.
