With rattling guitars and an energy that gives a good impression of what's going on at their concerts, Kaizers Orchestra ring in the second part of their Violeta trilogy, that not uncomplicated fantasy story about a cranky mother, a mysterious father and her mysterious daughter Violeta. She was kidnapped and sold by dubious daddy, but manages to meet her mother on the highest skyscraper in Tokyo - from which the two throw themselves together. What reads so dramatically sounds very rocky and for the Kaizers surprisingly pop. As always, there is singing in Norwegian, and if there weren't fan translations on the Internet, the plot would remain a mystery. In any case, the music does not in the least suggest the plot. And got a little smoother than usual this time. Some gimmicks like a banjo, a tuba, an organ, a rap interlude or bowie imitations here and there should not be missing and make sure that the project does not run out of air prematurely.
