Opening on the finger-snapping rhythms of the title track Brutal Fairytale and the spirited Spanish Tale in Arabia, they back those up seamlessly with the lushly orchestrated, sax-imbibed Digital Memory, the gently soothing funk tones of Garjavan and then comes the piano-led Origins.
Next up on this musical attempt to deliver passion and elegance to each and every listener is the atmospherically-earthy, two minute Fireplace and then comes the late night, underground jazz club appeal of Hermitís Song which are in turn followed by the melodic Wooden House, the eclectically entertaining thirteen minute opus Lo-Fi Banger, the album rounding out on the vocalized Traces of You, the melodious harmonies of The Blick, closing on the playfully perky Ska-Monk (For Air Guitar and Jazz Combo).
