Swedish band who mix real strings (violin & cello) into their pop/prog/concept/theatre pastiche to great effect. Moments on this disc can recall ELO or then Univers Zero! Certainly there is an influence of The Beatles as well as classical music in this prog release. The concept is a little murky but it seems to be "the injustice in the world & the futility of existence as seen through a failed, fatalistic man-woman relationship". It's kinda hard to tell as the lyrics are a bit strange since they were written by someone for whom English is clearly a second language. Not that it is bad poetry or broken English, but the syntax is sometimes very strange. So you think you get the meaning but.... maybe not..... Anyway, it is a well-written bit of rock theatre that works more often than not.
