While I would not call this last album any better or worse than the previous three, it was clear, that Fruupp was coming to an end. They never managed to have their own typical sound, were not able to progress enough from a strong start and maybe, just maybe, did not have what it takes. Anyway, one track's title seems to be resuming their rather quiet career ending album/ Masquerading With Dawn (their label).

Album title also given in Japanese on obi as "当世仮面舞踏会". Rights Society: JASRAC. Other Versions (5 of 11) View All. Cat.
