4 stars This album signalled the end of the Art Bears and is very much in the spirit of their 2nd release (Winter Songs). This time the topic is more political, but the approach remains the same. Each song, no matter how short, offers at least one (and often much more) musical idea that both motivates each piece and matches the lyrics. "Freedom" scorches with pain...the intertwining of Dagmar's voice with Frith's guitar is brilliant and electrifying. "Truth" takes a much softer tack, but one that is no less effective at delivering the message within an appropriate and compelling package. The musical stops at the words "prosperity" "truth" and "eden" are cynicism at its very best. These are not easy songs, but they are rewarding.
