The album was welcomed by the critics.The Sounds, a swedish band from Helsinborg, released Crossing the Rubicon on their own label Arnioki Records. Crossing the Rubicon is the band's third album and was supported by a world tour.

Brian Molko stated, while talking about the album: "We've made a record about choosing life, about choosing to live, about stepping out of the darkness and into the light. Not necessarily turning your back on the darkness because it's there, it's essential; it's a part of who you are, but more about the choice of standing in the sunlight instead."Sonic Youth 15th album The Eternal came out. The album is dedicated to Ron Asheton, a guitarist who died in 2009 and had collaborated with the Sonic Youth.
Dinosaur Jr, an american band from Massachusetts released their ninth album Farm, that got good reviews by the critics.The Temper Trap, an australian band from Melbourne released their deput album Conditions, which made the band well known all over the world.
Hurricane Festival took place near Bremen, Germany. Moi, Vamparela, a secret Paranoise agent was there and has some foto material of the best gigs for you! Hurricane was one of the best festivals I have ever been to. I got the chance to see live some music legends and some new bands as well. The weather was not exactly ideal, rainy most of the time, but at least not too cold for german standards. The people at the festival covered all possible age groups. My favoritte concert of the festival was Faith No More, but I have to admit that most of the concerts were really good.

Some of my favorite concerts were:
The Kraftwerk Blood Red Shoes
Eagles of Death Metal
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
PixiesFaith no More
The Rakes
Fleet Foxes
Nine Inch Nails
