Rantanplan have hit the bull’s eye with “Licht und Schatten” because it shows that even a genre like ska, which supposedly aims primarily at a young audience, can mature, grow and ground itself. How well it is complemented by indulgent detours in the direction of classic hard rock and wittily blustering noise rock. And what sincere anthems of humaneness in all its broken schizophrenia and absurdity this band can produce without having to spin the big wheel.
