Style: his own kind of AOChanson

The sought after only solo album by the Martin Circus member is a süperunique mix of chanson and various worldly influences. I find it quite difficult to describe the music, except from calling the arrangements brilliant. "Irresistible Pop Not Pop by a Progrocker" might be too obvious? Maybe you just listen and hear what I mean?
