    Had Fairbairn loved how would Magnification be different or the same as it is now?

    Has anyone thought about how Bruce would of worked with the Magnification lineup and those songs?

    Fairbain wouldn't have been a lock to produce Magnification, would he? The band liked him, but they've liked other producers and haven't used them on the next album for whatever reason (The producer might not be interested, the schedules might conflict, the band might be trying a different sound that a different producer would do better, the label might want a different producer- millions of possible reasons. Producers aren't really members of bands, so they often change between albums without any negativity from either side- and then sometimes are "back" on the album after the skipped one, or whatever). So, Magnification may have still unfolded with exactly the producer they had in reality, exactly the way it did in reality.

    "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. He kept telling me, ‘No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that’s something you want to do.’ And I have to keep making music. It’s just what I do. I’m a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood (Quote edited to fit under character limit for sig files)

    I've given this a bit more thought whilst watching Shag Island. Sadly the answer is still no.

    I hope some day we get Magnification like it was planned, as a new Tales, either with three or so epics or that wonderful, wild and wacky one hour piece. If they ever tried something like this… open the vaults.

    Magnification would have been nothing like it turned out.
    Most probably been The Ladder 2 perhaps with a nod to some orchestral stuff on Time & a Word.

    No. But I wish they didn't use as much orchestra on Mag, but wished they used Tom Brislin and dirtied up Steve's guitars. It's just so clean...

    But I really do wonder what it would have been like to have Horn produce the classic line-up in 2005-6 like H/S/W wanted to try. Oh well... The timing, health, and vibe, was all wrong anyways.
