Holopainen commented: “The response to the album The Life And Times Of Scrooge has been unexpectedly overwhelming and heartwarming. I wish to thank you all for the support! Moreover, I hope the album has brought Don Rosa`s wonderful story to your attention, as well!”

"It's been stated pretty clearly from the start that this is a marginal solo album that has nothing to do with metal or Nightwish," Holopainen told BraveWords recently. "It hasn't been that big of a surprise to people. The biggest surprise seems to be why I'm being so childish (laughs). Of course, that can be expected if you choose to do and album based on a children's comic book. It's just ignorance though, because people don't know what they're talking about."
