4 stars To the Grobschnitt's fairy land with your mind relaxed...

Pardon me but I wanna say this album's atmosphere can taste my old days...why? Where did I hear the sound ??? Always mysterious feeling wraps me up...

This is a fairy tale of Ernie the boy hero written by EROC. GROBSCHNITT could play the album, with their relaxed and laid back sound and melody. Typical fairy tale songs or albums have a bit difficult lyrics & contents or mysterious sound & melody...I suggest. However, their music style is so easy to understand in spite of their progressiveness. This 'EASE' can let us listeners be happier and more flexible, and it's GROBSCHNITT's identity in the Rockpommel's period.

With the first track Ernie's Reise Eroc presented the story Ernie could fly on his hand made paperplane and on the back of a big bird named Maraboo. This part can teach us GROBSCHNITT's flexibility and eccentricity (of course, good meaning!). In Severity Town there's very hard-to-enjoy atmosphere...with sad noises (e.g. beep-beep, crush), no, their playstyle is laidback too, I'm surprised. Anywhere is such a beautiful song with full of their gentle heart. Without my intention I always croon in a low voice. The last track Rockpommel's Land is a long highlight of this story, with pleasant sound effects and naughty kids' voice...what a pleasure, I wanna say.

There's no difficult theory or reason. You can enjoy this work, NATURALLY. This is a fairytale.
