“This is live transmission with commercial intermissions"

I've already written about Swedish band Brainpool before as part of the Millenium Project, but they deserve a proper post as well. In addition to crafting one of the finest rock operas of our time, they produce stunningly epic prog-rock-pop. I can't help but think that this sprawling sound is kind of what bands like Coldplay are going for but never really reach (yet, at least). Brainpool are especially interesting because they've existed as really two distinct entities depending on who the lead singer was. Moving from more of a pop/punk/rock sound with their old singer, they've now settled on something more grand and experimental. I'm eagerly awaiting a new album. This song is from their 1999 release You Are Here.
