“This album is a chaotic and contemporary musical reinterpretation of a short story ‘The Dream Of A Ridiculous Man’ written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky in 1877 and its animation movie adaptation with the same title by Alexandr Petrov (1992). It captures the experiences of a man who decides that there is nothing of value in the world. He contemplates how he has always been such a ridiculous person and also how he came to the realization that nothing really matters to him any more. … He ends up slipping into nihilism and was determined to take his own life until a sudden dream about a surreal encounter with this little girl accompanies him on his fatal journey. Towards the end, he kept wanting to go back to that dream, and that is all he was obsessing about, presumably with the intent of reconciling and atoning for his lack of kindness.”
