    What an interesting story about the way you got the album :-) You ordered it in Anneke's personal webshop? For me - that's really a pity that the album contains such a small amount of songs, I'd really prefer the whole concert because the given songs are amazing! I especially liked the songs from In Your Room, those live versions sound even better than their studio analogues, more filled with those crowd noises, I guess :-) I don't remember the new songs, just remember that I liked them while listening, especially, Laugh It Out. About the spoken text before Day After Yesterday - it's Russian again! A sampled announcement at the airport: "Attention over boarding "Aeroflot" departing flight 575 in Tokyo. Passengers, please, get to the landing, exit number 1." And some more text in another language... I guess, it's the same in Japanese, but I'm not really sure. As for Anneke's neck - I guess, it happened because her body stood more frontal to the camera than her head :D It's pretty natural, I think, and doesn't bother me, I didn't even pay attention to it before you pointed out :D PS. Have the same feelings about Shrink being the last song... I'd prefer something more positive (Hey Okay, hm?)...

    Hey Okay would have been an nicer way to end the show indeed :-) Or even Witnesses, which was her closing song during a lot of concerts of her last tour. Also not really a 'happy song', but better than Shrink. I ordered In Parallel at her personal webshop indeed. It's part of her website: http://www.annekevangiersbergen.com/shop. All CD's you order there are signed by Anneke, so that's great! I don't know if she is shipping to Russia as well. But anyway, because it was taking so long before I got In Parallel, they gave me Live in Europe for free, signed as well! I agree with you that a complete concert would have been better and also about the sound of the songs. I think the guitar and drum parts are just performed a bit heavier than on the studio versions. Thanks for the translation of the text! I already guessed it could be Russian, but I'm not really good in hearing the difference between Russian and the different Eastern European languages. I think she must love your country and language! The neck thing is not bad indeed, maybe it's just natural as you say. But now I am kind of focused on it, I am not able to not see it anymore, so that's a bit annoying. :-)

    Yes, they are shipping to Russia too, but they want 6 euros for EACH cd shipping, even if you make a mass order, it's too much, I think, even for the autographed cds :D Yes, Anneke said about enigmatic Russian soul that she was always wondered of, so she really likes out country :-) Haha, that's the bad thing indeed when you just focus on a little thing and can't get the whole because you can't distract :D I sometimes get annoyed of such things too :D

    That's quite expensive indeed, and strange that it is a fixed price for each CD... Better to wait for the concert in November, and get the autographs by her in person :-) It's great she likes your country, then you can be sure she will visit again!
