The album “fizzes with as much energy as any of their records,” declared Q, “being an effervescent brew of rock, electronica, and classical.” “Ron and Russell Mael’s world is as fabulously off-skew as ever,” wrote MOJO, “and, even better, wonderful melodies tumble out of the speakers.”

Internationally acclaimed recording artists Sparks – brothers Ron and Russell Mael – have released 23 creatively bold albums since their debut in 1972.

Moving to London from their native Los Angeles in 1974, Sparks released their third album, the influential Kimono My House, which quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, setting the tone for the band’s creative output to follow.

Since that time, the duo have created a unique musical legacy both on record and in live performances. In 2008 they performed all 21 of their albums (to date) in their entirety in 21 nights.

Hippopotamus, their 23rd album, received unanimous acclaim on its release in 2017, subsequently appearing in many ‘Album Of The Year’ lists. The accompanying world tour saw Sparks and their band play a set that was euphoric, vital, brilliant and uncompromisingly typical of a band that refuses to rest on their laurels.
