Don't forget too that (i think in the Cosmic Debris interview from the tBS page)
AoF and onwards was the start of the band getting out of the "BOC's
inferno" that the 1st 3 LPs created along with their band imagery on tour
in those days and to focus on not heavy "in the bad sense" music
production.  Given the Pearlman-ness of the Imaginos project (since he is
still trying to get it to fly multimedia-wise here and there), cooling
their jets and being creative for themselves (which I remember the
interview also saying that in that time frame of the live release) won out.

Pardon me Al if I paraphrased you wrong :)
