Comments guitarist Chris Broderick:

"Matt Bachand wrote ‘The Talisman,’ the music for it, and it was actually even a little bit slower than it is now. We kind of listened to it and thought, the tempo should come up just a little bit so we worked on that and then the acoustic entrance originally was an electric guitar idea that Matt had and then I took it and kind of ran with it and kind of made it my own a little bit and put it on acoustic because I thought it sounded more intimate. It does suit the lyrics in terms of content better I think.

To me the song overall is great. Matt did a great job adding the slow, doomy vibe to the song and Henry’s vocals and lyrics that he wrote supports that. I do love it for that reason because it isn’t just on 11 the whole time. It seems like so many bands, and songs, even when we write, it seems like you get this feeling like we have to be on 11 the whole time. But this song rails against that idea, and that’s why I love it so much."
