He’s the one that wanted to tame the faster tempos. He didn’t like the cluttered/anxious vibe of the faster tempos, or something like that. Don’t know the exact quote.
This whole argument just adds fuel to the “living in the past” fire, which is a tired trope that fans DO have a part at instigating. There’s nothing wrong with them playing these songs at album tempo, and there are a lot of reasons why it makes sense that they would do this.
And no, I’m not watching all of these vids. I’m being selective, I could give a flying fuck about ever hearing 1979, BWBW, tonight, etc etc ever again. But imo they are sounding great on TAFH, siva, superchrist, Etc..
