I love me a good rock opera. This single by Ludo is a great example of telling a story through music.
I don't really know when it was that I started loving rock operas, but for some reason they just fascinate me.
According to Tim Convy, keyboardist for Ludo: “It tells the story of a man’s wife dying, it destroying his life and leaving him feeling isolated, and him doing everything in his power to get her back.”
It's tender. It's a little heart breaking. It's full of emotion and adventure, and huge imagery. Time travel, dinosaurs, zombies, the end of time, dragons, the four horsemen... it's a vast story that you can't quite absorb by only listening to it once. I have heard it a thousand times and I still catch new bits that I may not have heard before.
