This tragicomic mix of circus and cabaret, coupled with the band's typically sardonic, world-weary rock, makes The Man on the Burning Tightrope Firewater's most atmospheric album to date. While this softens the blow of their music and . s lyrics somewhat, their impact is still impressive: "Anything At All"'s Latin-inspired beat sounds relatively upbeat, but its acidic guitars and sentiments like "All over the world/winners are cheating/losers are weeping/they take anything at all" are anything but.

This much can be confirmed by a quick glance at the Firewater's record covers, but any track off The Man on the Burning Tightrope- even more so than the band's three previous records- reveals a wealth of swirly organs, squawking accordions, crunchy snares and carny-barker vocals. Before I start talking about the songs, let's make a pact. The opening instrumental "Fanfare" sets the tone with a horn section breathing fire over exaggerated, dramatic rolls (the album was produced by the band's Israeli-born drummer, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, mixed to showcase the rhythm section). Anything at All" follows, with Ashley croaking come-ons like "If I were a memory I'd creep into your head.
