I will never say I know a lot about music, but I have many guys tell me I do for a chick. With that said, I have been drowning in the new Evergrey for a week solid..and I mean a week solid -- even at work with a hidden ipod. I just cannot stop listening, and I am so excited to feel this way. I cannot express how relieved I was that Mr. God Englund decided to pull himself up by the bootstraps and slap the world simple with what he had to say. I just love it when he does that!!! It gives me amazing goosebumps!!! : P Really, since I started listening to Evergrey, he (and Evergrey) has/have taken the words right out of my mouth. I, as usual bow, with the most respect on the earth to him, Carina and now their daughter Salina. I thank all of you for the outstanding beauty. Without you guys..well, I just don't want to go there... Rikard, I also thank you for the beauty and the loyalty to what we as fans loved about Evergrey. You and the keys are such an important part, so glad you stayed. Marcus, Johann and Hannes: Welcome and thank you for the beauty. You have blown us away. Marcus, really, your talent speaks for you. The slide on Wrong makes my eyes roll to the back of my head -- something so simple, I know, but your presence is recognized on this disc and you bring a special something that holds no words. Johann..you rule as well, and I have to tell you, I normally hate beards, but yours is lovely... : )! Hannes...you cute little thing... I loved Patrick..LOVED HIM..Masterplan is a bitch to follow..then came Jonas, gorgeous and somewhat deadly. I was scared to death drum wise when Jonas left. I mean, not just anyone can step in here HOWEVER, you are ridiculous with talent and you shocked the crap out of me. I have to say that you fit so well with Evergrey that I find myself drooling over your little sounds that come with you being you. Outstanding work my dear!!! The new Evergrey is ridiculously tight, and so ridiculously talented. And, I know that Tommy is still great friends with Jonas and Henrik, which makes me happy, so I do not say what I am about to say to be mean or childish, but I find when I listen to the new disc I find that I am sitting and saying Jonas and Henrik who? I never thought I would think that. I am stunned and beyond excited that you guys have found each other. Please stay awhile..the magic is there and we are dying for so much more!! As for Jonas and Henrik, I wish them luck and happiness. I am personally just not into DD, but I do wish them luck and happiness.
