Good interview. Short, but at least we have an estimated release date for the album and how they felt at this "new" beginning.

Why does the interviewer think its a cash grab, to release the first live album in 13 years? That comment rubbed my haunches the wrong way. And trust me, I am VERY sensitive. :eyes

Sorry to have rubbed your haunches at all , but the "cash grab" comment had NOTHING to do with the live album aspect of the release. It has to do with issuing it attached to a re-release of an album only a year old. Trust me, in this business we call that line of thinking a cash grab.

That said, Stratovarius did something rare and respectable by releasing a quality "bootleg" in Polaris Live. It's an excellent package, one worth buying, which can't be said for 95% of similar "special edition" releases.

Hats off to them for a job well done.

Onward :)

Jaja! It feels like yesterday! Wasn't it the day before yesterday I went to Seattle and you had moved away. The brown box was very empty and all the Dialup Modems were very homeless. I almost wrote a sad poem about it...i have it in some drawer. I miss you too of course. :luv1:

I really think that the next album will be better. I am kind of dissapointed with Polaris, even if it is quite good.

:lol: I hope there is no sound in the earphones! Otherwise it is animal-cruelty in highest potens. At least if they are playing something about musical hills. BRRRR
