Ancient Greeks and Circus Freaks

This album entered a new world for the IML. By opting for two themes at once we stood the chance of getting completely mixed up but oddly there turned out to be lots of consistency. We knitted the tracks together with a short story for the first time (though there was a beautiful spoken word track on Superheroes of the Sea). This album contains some of the heaviest and some of the most sensitive moments from the group yet.
