LAURI YLÖNEN FROM THE RASMUS COMMENTS:
“We felt it was time to sum up these past ten years. Eero said, let’s call the album “This is how I spent my twenties”… No matter how stupid it sounded that is pretty much the truth. We went on this crazy rollercoaster ride, it has been an amazing time. We have travelled to more than 60 countries, from India to Siberia, met thousands of fans all over the world and enthusiastic people working with our records. And when I look back on these last four records I feel very proud of them. We decided to include most of the singles, a couple of our favorite album tracks, and the new song October & April which is a duet song with Anette Olzon of Nightwish.”
