Re: Press ratings

Hi all, Such a nice review of Elysium in the latest issue of Finnish music magazine Soundi. Four stars. Roughly translated as follows: Is it just that we’re about to enter the bleakest season of the year or is Elysium really such a good album as it seems? At least the eleventh studio album from Pet ...

Re: Helsinki 2/7

What a show! Probably the best setlist ever, and visually very effective with a clever use of the ever-changing minimal setup. I also think the crowd was actually pretty good, and the boys seemed genuinely impressed with the response. Personal highlights in random order: The old-skool electro sectio...

Re: Helsinki 2nd of July

Attending! Highlight of the summer!:) We'll be having a small pre-party among fellow petheads before the event, so probably won't be arriving too early. But it's never been a problem in Finland to get a good standing place even a the very last minute. Unless you of course definately have to get into...

Looks like the question is about when they're announcing the Finnish concert date. Although if you check the tour section on the official site it is says "Finland?" on July 2. So that looks very likely!

Re: Ridiculous Yes review in main Finnish newspaper

Well, the somewhat touchy reviewer has now answered my comment on the newspaper's site, claiming that he does indeed know his PSB very well and just finds Yes a big disappointment. What can I say, I simply cannot understand how anyone can categorise it as a two-star album, as it's very nearly perfec...

Ridiculous Yes review in main Finnish newspaper

Hi all! I probably shouldn't get so agitated over a review, but this morning certainly got off to a bad start when I read an unbelievably misguided piece on Yes in Finland's leading daily newspaper. The writer claims that the album is made up of very weak material, with the ONLY exception of The way...

Greetings to all fellow Petheads! I'm emerging from lurker mode after an extremely long break just to say that I'm also up for pre-show drinks in Stockholm. :D I got a bit of a scare when I realised during the process that it wasn't possible to order tickets online from abroad, but luckily I managed...
