I’m interested in the reasons.I don’t think that it’s because of bad music.I think it’s because of bad managing.Don’t you think?

I am not worry about these bad statistics, really! Because I have no good experiences with EMI; If you have a problem and write to EMI you feel like the last stupid person. In September I wrote some mails because I´ve had some questions about releases but untill today I´ve got no answer. The same disappointment was when I called EMI Germany.... Really bad service and really bad promotion.
Therefore - No wonder; that´s what EMI get for beeing so “friendly”!!!!
Roxette will still be there, even when EMI is on the end one time. Marie and Per can be more successful without them!

Good. EMI UK deserves everything it gets. They’re killing Roxette in this country, and they know it.

Only when P&M wake up and switch to a non-EMI label will they have even the slightest chance here.
