Wow Jeanette,

thank you for taking so much time to listen to the songs and share your impressions. I did not expect this, even if I have already noticed that you comment basically very well-founded. I really appreciate it!

As a guitarist and tenor, of course I love the bass ;-) and had a lot of fun creating the sounds!

Here immediately you put the finger in the wound;-) (Is there such an expression in English?) 
It's almost impossible for me to mix my own voice. It is always too loud, too quiet, too thin, too thick, too sharp, too hollow ...
The difference between the 'inner and outer' sound is still hard to handle and I have missed a second pair of ears very much.

I grew up with the music of the 80s, probably that has left its marks ;-)

Come on, how could I take that as anything other than a compliment.
I saw Kraftwerk at Lollapalooza three years ago and even though they are even older than me they put on a pretty impressive and modern show ;-)

> All in all, a frefreshingly depressive experience,
"frefreshingly depressive " nice expression! If I ever become famous, I will trademark this - and you will get royalties;-)

This in fact was intended. BTW I don't see criticism as bad.

> Thanks again 

Many many thanks again to you and

no, of course not! 

All the best
