ROXETTE HAVE A NICE DAY | Vinyl
In the five years between Roxette's last album, Crash, Boom, Bang, and this, their "comeback" album, pop music had changed considerably. Crash, Boom, Bang failed, in part, because it was completely out of step with the times; in 1994 grunge, alternative, and rap ruled the charts, but Roxette always produced a relatively crisp and clean brand of pop/rock. In the five years since then, however, Brit-pop brought alternative rock back towards pop, electronica made dance music "cool" again, and bubblegum pop bands like the Spice Girls made unabashed pop fun again. Also, Per Gessle was fresh off from his very rock-oriented 1997 solo album. What resulted, then, was really rather ambitious. Have A Nice Day is an effort to encapsulate Roxette's trademark sound with Brit-pop and electronica, and, by gosh, it works. It's easily as good as any other Roxette album, save maybe only the stellar Joyride, and it shows that artistically the band is still on top. There's a good deal of emphasis on dance music here, but instead of the indistinguishable dance-pop of the band's early days, the beats seem to be borrowed straight from Fatboy Slim records. That, mixed with Gessle's gritty guitars, makes for a good deal of up-tempo rockers ("Crush on You," "7Twenty7," "Stars"). There are also some excellent pop songs, such as the single "Wish I Could Fly" and Gessle's unforgettable "You Can't Put Your Arms Around What's Already Gone," quite possibly the best song he's ever written. As is the case with any Roxette album, however, there are flaws, namely the presence of filler, mostly in the form of pace-destroying ballads. It's a small price to pay, however, for the return of one of the best mainstream pop bands in the past decade. ~ Jason Damas

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.
This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.
These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.
Carbon Removal Process
Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.
For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.
There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.
How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated
The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.
Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:
If primary value isn't available
Weight of the shipment
An average shipment weight
Distance traveled according to the tracking data
Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5
Type of transportation
Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance
To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.
For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.
However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.
Considerations for using the Planet app
Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:
- The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed.
- The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
- Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
- The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
