Description: “-And, banned as they are from their blissful homeland, they see it in their dreams, that happy land.-[1] 8 fragments of saudade from the wandering girls. A Touhou full vocal album where the thoughts are dancing in the far space.”

[1] quote from Zigeunerleben (Gypsy life) by Robert Schumann.
The album is centered on wandering people who lost their hometown. The title could also be taken from “Paradise Lost”, an epic poem by the 17th century English poet John Milton. The poses Renko and Maribel have in the album art seem also to be a reference to those of Adam and Eve in the painting by Lucas Cranach the Elder.
