 The first half of the album called ´Out´ deals with all the suffering, with the topic of cancer and death. Fred Lessing wrote it before and shortly after the death of his wife. ´Fish Dissected´ reveals echoes of KING CRIMSON and GENTLE GIANT. In ´Where It Hurts Most´ the narrative structure alternates with clutching violin sounds. ´Shipwreck´ has a slight DIRE STRAITS-flair, ´Whalebone‘ is a dark songwriter-song.
The second half of the album (called ´In‘) leads Lessing back into his life, back into an entirely new life, without forgetting his old one. ´The River´ leads the protagonists back into the fast-moving time. With harmonica, increasingly emerging happiness in singing and Brian May-Memorial-Solo (´The Single-Most Expensive Kiss In History ´) life begins 2.0. The instrumental group played formidably on (`Headlong´), the mood caught up briefly again in their dark phase, although the flute slowly trying to lift the veil (´I Abraham´). Translucent as in ´Bonne Voyage´ it will not last, because the trumpets of hysteria hit promptly (`Ghost´).
