Fourth album, of sorts, The General, sees the Haiku sound inhabiting a world created by others, in this case Buster Keaton's classic 1926 comedy masterpiece of the same name. Originally commissioned for a live cinematic screening of a remastered version of the movie, this soundtrack album is remarkable in its ability to stand alone without the accompanying imagery. In fact, The General evokes a wide range of mental imagery, whilst cultivating emotions previously buried, with or without having viewed the film.
