Quote from: MeltingMan on May 27, 2024, 18:21:48When it was released, I listened to it "up and down"; I also bought the singles with the B-sides.

Same here! I loved some of those b-sides!

Quote from: MeltingMan on May 27, 2024, 18:21:48I recently read that on Wikipedia, many more musicians/technicians were involved in the creation of the album. 

They are all mentioned in the booklet (if you still have the album), four different drummers plus of course the musicians who performed the strings and the trumpets/brass - and lots of people involved in the mixing. The band was off to a South American tour in early '96, which caused some pressure.

Quote from: MeltingMan on June 02, 2024, 09:49:50Do we want to put the problem on future generations?! Russia is already preparing the next war ... in twenty, thirty years.

Or maybe much earlier, e.g. if we "hand them over" the Ukraine, as some people suggest...  :1f636:

I saw the interview. Kiev was forced to deduct units of air defense from the front to ensure the protection of the civilian population in the major cities. But that was exactly what was intended by the aggressor (Russia)!

The Russian Air Force has no "range problem". And every restriction in the use of western weapons also helps Russia and limits the possibilities of Ukraine hitting back, always on the condition that Ukraine has the last word in this matter.

We had long, excruciating, public discussions ... ultimately without meaning. In this respect, the minister may be right, but, and that also became clear in the interview, he cannot prevent such questions in Warsaw, Brussels and elsewhere. Experts and politicians can make wrong decisions. Do we want to put the problem on future generations?! Russia is already preparing the next war ... in twenty, thirty years.

Our Minister of Defense, Pistorius, recently said something and I think he's right: we should not discuss such strategies in public over the media. Does Russia discuss where their weapons come from and how to use them? No.
These things should be discussed by politicians and military experts, outside the public view.

Quote from: WELTSurprise! Chancellor Scholz allows German weapons to be used against targets in Russia.

According to the Federal Government, Ukraine may also defend itself against shelling from the Russian border area with weapons delivered from Germany. "In the past few weeks, Russia has prepared, coordinated and executed attacks, especially in the Kharkiv area, of positions from the immediately adjacent Russian border area," explains government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit by press release. "Together we are convinced that Ukraine has the right to defend itself against these attacks." The spokesman does not say which weapons from Germany could be used for this. The PzH 2000 and the rocket launcher Mars-II would come into question due to their range.
