There's something a little bit dark about her, and it's asking why we're so desperately attracted to something of a dark nature." (Rock Sound
, 2001)Origin of Symmetry
wasn't officially released in the US until 2005 because Maverick Records (their stateside label) wanted the band to removed Matt's trademark falsetto to boost radio appeal, and the band refused.
