AllMusic Review by

For the 1996 movie Swallowtail Butterfly, high-voiced songstress Chara provided the band. An in-movie group, the Yen Town Band, was formed to provide music for the movie and the related album Montage, something of a tie-in soundtrack. With the help of producer Takeshi Kobayashi, there's an attempt to re-create elements of the Beatles in the arrangements, and that attempt is largely successful in the instrumentation. Chara's vocals are somewhat less fitting, but do place themselves into a grandiose setting.
