Indeed, the opening track, "Target Market," sets you up to expect some sort of mesh of Lotte Lenya and Nina Hagen, so pronounced is the Teutonic dark circus feel. The record quickly veers toward more standard rock arrangements, however, even if a somewhat mannered dramatic feel permeates much of the material. It is a varied dish: "A Time of Light" isn't far from an after-hours torch song, yet other tracks, like "Little Soldier of Time" and "President," approach breezy new wave pop. By the standards of...

By the standards of rock songwriting, some of this is quite ambitious, taking in a futuristic mini-opera ("Marie-Antoinette Robot 2073"), allusions to the dying American dream ("God Doesn't Take American Express"), and musings upon possible identities in past lives, along with more conventional personal introspection. As a whole, in fact, the album comes off as something of a mini-opera without a definite theme, slightly echoing the approaches of some of the more European-influenced and theatrical rock singers such as Hagen, Gavin Friday, Nick Cave, David Bowie, and Bryan Ferry.
