2 stars Second solo album by Eroc is the least attractive one for me from his first three I've to say. It's basically a rather quaint compilation of some nonsensical fun tracks (which I can only smirk about into parts, but not really laugh) and some nice and enjoyable songs like "Der Traum vom Wald". That one is actually a quite serious, melancholic, almost mawkish story told in spoken words about a lost childhood's dream backed up with some pleasant music played on accordeon. Thus it will be certainly of rather little interest for someone not knowing German language. Still the best tracks are "Nebelwelt" opening the album with some melancholic guitar chords and "Abendmeer" which is a quite impressing pile of Mellotron and accordeon tunes. "Ich bin ein Lachen" is another serious and surprisingly aggressive one. In between all those fairly good songs one can listen for example to some chats of the band members in typical Rhine area idiom having a couple of beers together, you can imagine how exciting this must be, even for someone like me who understands what they're talking about. One of the short spoken sections is actually a faked conversation of Eroc with his producer who blames him for not entertaining enough his audience with the music he's doing which is quite a good joke I've to say because in fact he's right in saying this. Anyway this record should be considered even more than his first one for Grobschnitt fans only as a fairly good supplement and demonstration of Joachim Ehrig's multiple talents!
