"After almost 40 years veering between rock, avant garde, disco and classical, the 22nd Sparks album is radical even for pop's master conceptualists. Originally commissioned for Swedish radio, it's a 60-minute, 24-song collection based around celebrated Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman's seduction by Hollywood ... Best experienced as a whole, this is a bold, major work - as compelling and original as anything in their sporadically brilliant career." (The Guardian)

"Sharply scripted, with that sly, knowing touch so typical of Sparks, it's also scored with scrupulous intelligence, the arrangements drawing on a range of apt influences, from Kurt Weill to jazz, pop and rock, and the orchestrations ingeniously duplicitous, wistful and sinister, as the action dictates. It may well turn out to be the pinnacle of Sparks' career, and certainly has an ambition well beyond the usual remit of popular culture." (The Independent)
