This album is a hymn to the powers of life and death; the unavoidable cyclic dependence. These songs originate from the lyrics of the Swedish author Birgitta Trotzig. You may call this chamber music. The possible audible influences ranges all the way from Hanns Eisler to SLAPP HAPPY, ART ZOYD and GENTLE GIANT. But this is also definitely Swedish music.

Song From Cities of Decay is more feathery or better said atmospheric, less busy, more delicate when comparing it to predecessor and incorporates plethora of menacingly hovering sounds. It is bridge between MFtDF and sounds of Ur Kaos. From the first listen I know this is one of the most important records in European progressive music, along with RIO releases. Lach'n is playing all instruments and had carefully sung all vocals of its own, producing gorgeous harmonies and strange counterpoint not heard since the era of shining Gregorian chorales. Here it is hard to detect accurately certain instruments, because the music immediately pulls you into into itself, let you inertly watching how your body swirls in it, but also allows you to take a breath with each new track.
Lach'n Jonsson's solo albums, Music For The Dying Forest released in 1985, and Songs From Cities Of Decay in 1989, have an exceeding distinct voice all their own. In his own words, "Inspiration comes all the way from medieval songs, through the romantic classical era, to the art rock and improvised creative chaos of the 1970's and 80's. On the first solo outing he is accompanied by a host of other musicians (including Mats Paulsson and Johan Hedrén of Ur Kaos), on the second every instrument and voice is the work of Jonsson himself
