I translated it :) (Sorry for my poor English, hope you understand it!)

" 'Oh Mary' is a song that Alonza was mumbling to a riff which I came up with, but actually, I don't know if it's about the Virgin Mary, or someone who is called Mary really existed, or had rhymed something with. *laugh*"

I guess you need to translate the whole booklet for us :lol:
Get better soon!!

Thanks, I've recovered! :)
Oh, booklet! It's what I wanted to say at that time, yeah, it's a booklet in English :oops:
And I don’t know who wrote the track, cos it isn't listed in the booklet, unfortunately.


Glad to hear! :) thanks for translating this!!

I'm not sure I understand the italicised bit 100%, but I gather that Crispian is saying that Alonza wrote the lyric and he (Crispian) isn't sure if the song is about the Virgin Mary or not.

I received my Japanese edition CD yesterday; I had to put my order on hold at the last minute because of a house move (which went well!) so that I could be sure it would go to the new address.

I got the standard jewel case edition not the cardboard 'LP style' limited edition packaging.

Most disappointing for me was that Crispian's explanations are in Japanese only (which I think was implied by what m2 had posted above, ... I was still hoping though). This is in contrast with his comments in the Japanese edition of Kollected, which appear in both English and Japanese (so I was hoping for the same).

I hope m2 can translate some more of the song commentary, if there is any interesting stuff, in time.

Here is my translation of Crispian's comment of 'Love B (With U)'.
I have to say it's just a translation, not the words he actually chose. So you need to presume what Crispian actually said/what he wanted to tell 8-)

“I think this song is like a gospel. It can be rephrased as 'God Be With You'. If it's a gospel, you'd sing so. It's the same in meaning. But I don't feel 'God' is a proper word in English very much. Because the word 'God' gives a bias to people and doesn't get through the original meaning, I feel. But, 'Love' is more personal. 'Love' means 'God' on personal, but it's different with each person what it is. When we see the world and see God, we see it in each respective positions, so I think we need room to construe. If you don't have Love and Hope, there is no meaning to survive. But you also have to manage in dark times.”

Does anyone know where i can hear the full bonus track? Apart from buying the Japanese edition, that is.
I refuse to play that game; why should they get more songs than us?
Cheers

Because they pay more money for the album. (Simples).

Thank you very much m2, I enjoyed that a lot, I felt I got the sense of Crispian's words.

Let Love B (With U) and Only Love (from PP) are great lyrics. Make me think of 1 Corinthians 13, which I also like a lot.
