4 stars "Lifespan" is the second solo-CD of Ulf Jacobs ("Yacobs") from Germany. He Plays drums, piano and all synths with the help of Horst Modler (bass) and Rico Florczak (guitar). Ulf composed the Music, wrote the lyrics and sings all melodies. The selfproduced Album contains 10 Songs about life, love, tears, childrenbooks, everything and nothing. It should be played "loud with the lights off". Not only the cover (a "face value" lookalike), the Music, the Sound, the drum- and pianoplaying reminds where the Inspiration came from: Phil Collins in the 80s (minus the Kool and the gang-touch). Like his Idol Ulf deals between melancholic Pop, singer-songwriter piano man and progressive rock. Of course the Music is more temporary and without Big Band or Soul incredients. The CD running time is 43 minutes. Without stretching the ideas the Music is on a high Level in composition, Arrangement and production. Best song on the Album: childrenbook with Pop up figures.
