Six months after AMERICAN POP we got another animated-feature-for-adults-with-a-rock-soundtrack

This entry in the ink, paint and rock ‘n roll mini-genre is not directly about the music, but heavily emphasizes its soundtrack, basing sequences around it not quite like FANTASIA, but not completely unlike it. And some of the visual subject matter definitely shares its DNA with the kind of stuff they put on the album covers for this kind of music.

Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of...
