(4 out of 5 stars)

"This short album is my favorite collection of work by the Cranes. Very haunting themes throughout, and a strong control of mood. Starting with a crushing evil-sounding wall of bass, then contrasted with a high-pitched sometimes hopeful, sometimes frightened, faerie voice. The lyrics are pretty much spoken-word throughout, since it is really Sartre's play (or a subset of it) set to music. It is an active listening experience. All of the lyrics are in the original French. Liner notes explain the story."
