2 stars Yeah, they pretty much derailed the City-Nord by this point. The ridiculous attempt at contemporizing their sound on "Frühsport im Sachsenwald" is a new low. That said, it's mostly business as usual: another instrumental intro, a couple of bland ballads, a pop tune with sax. Ho-hum.

Proceedings pick up a good deal near the end, though. Detlef Job's "Nachttraum" is an epic in the best sense of the word. It's no "Der Geigenspieler", but it's certainly better than I was expecting from this album. Better yet is the very eerie instrumental album closer "Blauer Morgen". Lutz Rahn's synth lines absolutely send chills up and down my spine. It may be worth getting the album just for that!
