Once again, an excellent issue.

The first thing to capture one's eye is the new format, with nice, thickers covers and an excellent print quality. They layout is quite balanced and easy to read. Eb.er's artwork is nothing short of beautiful.

With articles being not just interviews and reviews, but also the already familiar 'essentials' section, a really nice article on field recordings, and another shorter one about science fiction and noise, the zine is really starting to live up to its name..!

The interviews are all good. Enjoyed especially the longer ones (Keränen, Rahbek, Esposito), but also the slightly shorter ones (Bestializer, Cremation Lily, Kinit Her) were nice and informative. My absolute favourite was the interview with Loke Rahbek anyway. Having seen him perform live has made it obvious that there must be quite much of something, a vision, behind the art we witnessed and this just confirmed my feeling. A long, well articulated, in-depth and coherent piece with lots of interesting points, all in a nice and honest tone. Not only my favourite part of the issue, but also one of the better ones in the history of Special Interests in general.

Fantastic issue, this is definately best so far. Cover material is thick, professional like. Also changing the binding was a good idea. Love the looks. Maybe least content so far, but definately the best. Each issue has been clear development, future looks great!

Least content? Hmm, not sure. I guess it's just longer features. There's less ads and certainly not more graphics either, so more text - but just longer features.

I'm toying around with idea of making magazine bigger. Either c. 70 pages or even 100 pages. We'll see... Now when it's twice a year, more pages wouldn't hurt.

Ha! I guess it just felt like it, I don't know. Could be because the pages are now more 'tightly' together.

I read the new issue on the train down to Stockholm. Once again Special Interests proves its position as leading publication in this field, covering wide range of subjects in very passionate way. I think it not only works as a "fanzine" per definition but also brings up some interesting critical questions. The printing / heavy cover binding was great improvement too....

Nice one, I'm more then happy to pay the price for the new thick covers and print quality.
I think twice a year is great, I would rather see three times a year with 30+ pages then once a year and 90-100 pages.
High light for me: Field recordings article. More reviews in each number would be great, but I know how time consuming that can be.

Thanks for doing this!

Writing more reviews is not a problem. I just hope to keep balance ratio of reviews vs. other content like this. If more pages will be added, it will result some more pages for reviews.

I just tried ordering twice, and there was an error completing the transaction, it doesn't show up on my card at all.  MAY be a problem with your store, or may be that Paypal just hates prepaid cards.

damn. they were updating the PayPal API of Store Envy the other day and noted there may be some issues, if you try again now it should work. if it happens in the future just send and email and we'll do the transaction that way :)
