Set and Jostein, my fellow Swedes, ett riktigt riktigt stort tack till er
b=E5da! :D

Julien: Funny, one of the things I always look forward the most when
posting songs to these lists are your thought through and excellent
feedback and impressions, thank you very much! It's always a pure pleasure
reading what you have to say.
Hahaha you got me with A Change of Heart, I did manage to sneak that in
here too, like in everything else I've done ;). And yeah, you're perfectly
right about the drums, I will keep that in mind for the future, thanks!
Oh, right, the track names! I probably should've made some format where I
didn't have any of the Swedish special signs. No worries! I'll make sure I
think about that too in the future.

Thank you very much again for your comments! And thank you very much again
Set, Jostein and Harry, for your comments!

Hello Gabbe!
=A0 First of all thanks for an interesting album. And thanks for all the di=
fferent download possibilities. I used the torrent and it worked very smoot=
hly. This is very much appreciated!
=A0 So the album. I found it to be captivating. Not all the way through, bu=
t there was enough difference and change between the songs, to be curious f=
or every next track. And my, there were a few surprises.
=A0 I love the occasional meditative passages, reminiscent of some of your =
earlier solo productions. Very good wordplay as well. No, just joking. :-) =
I don't speak Swedish. But sometiems it reminded me of nothern German s=
peech melody, comparing it to Fettes Brot in my mind. One of the last track=
s - the one with solo vocals most of the time - almost put me in mind of so=
me piece from Tuva I once heard.

=A0 Also the change in drumkits and arrangement - partly orchestral, very e=
lectronic, acoustic guitar feel, etc. - was pleasant to the ears and mind. =
- I had to smile, when I discovered, that you were able to recycle bits of =
Change of Heart once more. :-) There were other movements, parts of riffs, =
that reminded me of your handwriting.

=A0 One detail I stumbeld across in almost every song: why did you mix the =
drumkits so quietly? Very counter-intuitive. The tracks do have punch, but =
they could have had more of a raw edge of a drive with the drums mixed more=
prominently. I recognise some Hydrogen kits here. :-) But thanks anyway, f=
or not using the TR-808 kit as so many hiphop artists appear to do in recen=
t years, not that I follow the scene closely. Perhaps they did stop doing s=
o a while ago. :-) Still, I'm glad to find the old school of percusive =
elements. Yet as I said: not boring or repetitive amongst the pieces.

=A0 Nice work! I'll be listening to it again in portions. By the way, s=
orry for not quoting tracknames, but there were a few characters, which I c=

=A0 Thanks for sharing this album so freely!
=A0 Warm regards
