1 stars Ow. This one hurt. A lot. Without Eroc's guiding hand or Mist's colourful keyboard work, the group went pretty far off-course.

This one sounds painfully 80's. Simmons drums, blaring digital-synth brass, synthesized bass, the whole shebang. And the music really isn't good enough to sustain one's interest. Wildschwein is still there, as is long-time roadie Toni Moff Mollo, now promoted to co-lead vocals. His singing is actually quite charming, rather in the same style as Roger Hodgson. There's also a new guy, Milla Kapolke (the bass-player), who sings like he constantly has a bit of food lodged in his throat.

Singing aside, there's really not much to spark your interest here. Ostensibly another concept album, the songs are so pedestrian they simply don't register on the radar. Well, except when you're overcome with nausea, as on the disco-rocker "Keine Angst" or when the children's voices appear on "Die Kinder zieh'n zum Strand" (shades of "Circus Of Heaven"). Actually, you're overcome with nausea a good deal, as Jürgen Cramer's synth tones are so in-your-face and obnoxious, much of the album is unbearable. Not even the attempt to get all anthemic on "Könige der Welt" really registers. Pretty sad.
