Do you know what, I'm not so sure. Whilst having so many different labels in different territories probably made things difficult, I think at certain times they'd had some decent A&R and management involvement things might have been better, particularly in the later years. We shouldn't judge Clive Davis too harshly - if he hadn't insisted on bringing The Sign forward and adding Don't Turn Around and Living In Danger, they might never have become as successful as they did. If anything, the band could've done with some more advice and direction when it came to The Bridge. Clearly when that didn't go so well, labels wanted more involvement in Flowers/Cruel Summer. If they had one team around them with the right expertise and real confidence in the band, and just signed to the one major label round the world, maybe they'd have had a better relationship, maybe they'd have been more focused and just things could've run more smoothly.
