Sondra Lerche is a 21-year-old Norwegian with designs on being the next Brian Wilson. Instead, he ends up sounding like a confused Billy Joel. His imagination is vivid but his focus is askew, splashes of unexpected and varied sounds swamping the skeletal songs. Nothing is left alone, as strings sigh, saxophones parp and cellos moan on Lerche's quest to shove everything into this pop odyssey.
