4 stars Ordinarily, I don't care for concept albums, and this one still strikes me as a bit corny. But Grobschnitt's self-effacing humour makes sure you know that they're taking it about as seriously as you are (i.e.: not at all), and that seems to make everything okay. Somehow, this makes the touching ballad "Anywhere" that much stronger.

Musically, this is pretty much on a par with the great "Jumbo". It takes a while for it to grow on you (probably because it's hard to get past the silly, childish concept), but once it does, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Mist's layered keys and Lupo's emotional guitarwork highlight the band's instrumental attack, while Wildschwein's quirky yet affable singing voice sells the songs with just the right amount of conviction.
