it’s been mighty hard to wake up from the post ooom tour bliss… after 7 perfect weeks of playing music, then arriving home for family holidays and snow storm after snow storm…. i’ve been unplugged from the internet and relishing in what feels like a dream. this has been bliss. finally releasing OUT OF OUR MINDS after many years of restructuring and seeking the mysterious “new” path to release music and feelings, was the root of this past year- the OUT OF OUR MINDS tour, was the fire at the end of the 2010 OOOM tunnel. a perfect cycle. thank you to all that came and were part of it. we are digging into some ooom tour out takes and highlights to recap, but i wanted to start with celebrating my #8 position in world leading hard rock mag’s year end pole! fantasticcccccc! thank you dearest KKKKKKKerang. you have always been supporters, since way back when the “ginger” joined hole x this is what they said, and i am humbled and teary eyed to read it:

“…the Canadian has long been one of rock’s most artistic souls … Out Of Our Minds is a beguiling ethereal collection of songs that sound unlike anything else out there.”

Earlier this year upon the release they gave OOOM a 4 K review and said this….
“MAdM is now comfortable in her own (celebrity) skin that she can turn her hand to any style she damn well pleases” (KKKK)

not to mention the KKKK LIVE review from the tour!
“There’s nothing flashy or excessive about the performance but… there’s no doubting the quality or care of offer or the fact that, for Melissa Auf der Maur, it really  is all about the music”

it’s a great place to end a year of amazing and hard work. my muscles are still pumped from the bass swinging and head banging …. i will be back for more!! just waking up to find the next path to you, you and you

    Congratulations Melissa ^^
    Everybody knows that you did your best in this album and you deserve this and everything more. And one thing is really the true: “…for Melissa Auf der Maur, it really is all about the music”, don’t you agree ;P

    Keep rocking =D
