Thayil said, “That was Brandi’s choice and it was a good one,” Cameron said at the time. “‘Searching With My Good Eye Closed’ is one of Chris’ greatest songs, it has so much depth. It’s a colossus”.
He added, “Hearing Brandi and the twins completely rock the f**k out on that tune was amazing. I love how it turned out. Kim’s solo is pretty incredible too”.
