Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

Ok, don't know how many (if at all) are Oasis fans, or maybe think they're a bunch of wankers, but even though I'm a pretty big metal fan, I have a soft spot for those guys. I love the first two, and pretty much like almost all of their releases, except the last one, Dig Out Your Soul , even though ...

I didn't choose to mispronounce it, as I didn't know I was doing it, but apparently the word risen is not pronounced as rice-n but rather, rees-n.

Maybe it's just me as a foreign English speaker, but "interpretated" should totally be a valid word. You have interpretation, but you don't interpretate something, you interpret. I don't know, it just feels weird.
