Okay, good, I have to check that. The Vertigo thing was good, but it was shock full of [these] backhanded compliments that we're always getting [from the Finnish press]. They just can't refrain from giving them, I guess, but I still haven't found out why. And they managed to get both our album titles wrong. That's a feat in itself. And of course, nothing about the lyrics – the reviewer said she'd just flicked quickly through the booklet, noticing that we'd really succeeded with the 80's indie wimp look...

Can't agree with you more. Och dessutom alla dessa obehagliga finska epitet för "mjuk" musik: nössö, nynny... ew.

I would like to add (Finnish being my native language) that that Vertigo thing was generally speaking poorly written, I mean: you can't seriously take seriously a reviewer who can't get the album titles right! And I think that most Finnish speaking people don't like those expressions "nössö, nynny", etc. either. I would never use them in my text if I was supposed to write a review. P.S. I love your new album very much. It's just great.

usch, äckligare text var det länge sedan jag läste och "The Providence Complains", haha, vad tänkte människan egentligen...

Jag tycker i alla fall att Mattias sjunger bra och hela bandet är vråltuffa. Även texterna verkar intressanta.

Thanks, Anna!

Okej, jag refererade lite fel angående det där med att recensenten bläddrade snabbt igenom texthäftet. Nåja.

What the hell... How is that even possible that I've got BOTH album titles so embarrassingly wrong? I must've had hangover when I wrote that review or I just have very serious dyslexia. So it was me, I admit all that crap and I'm truly sorry. I liked the album anyway, hahah.

No worries, the next album will be called "My hat".

And sorry for misquoting you!

Are you sure "My hat" is simple enough? :D

"Providence" still pales in comparison with "Prarie", which was the thing complaining in the UK music magazine Word. Howling coyotes, anyone?
