Annette ★★★★

Seeing Sparks live later today so I guess there’s no better time to revisit this confounding thing. Getting past the shock of this being not quite what you would expect from those guys and enjoying the music/story more for what it is helped. Heightened opera of absurdities that’s serious and silly in disarmingly equal measure. Sure, it doesn’t rock, rock, rock nor does it really make one laugh, laugh, laugh but I gotta applaud it. Where else can I get something like this with music and visuals I do enjoy a great deal even if there’s not much to get emotionally involved with? Can totally see bumping this up even another half star with another watch.
