I loved TBB instantly and still do today but AIU was a disappointment to me.(I'm still not convinced.) We each look for different things in Alphaville. Being disappointed isn't offputting and quite often if I hear the songs live or in demo versions (as in the AIU era songs on Dreamscapes) I get them. Overproduction is what kills a song for me.

I want to hear it whole, I can't really judge by snippets if it's good or bad...

So, what about the release party? Anybody going knowing that's in the middle of the week?

I find it quite ridiculous to judge, review or discuss a yet-unpublished album based on low-quality 30-second snippets on third-party-vendor sites...

Why don't we all rejoice that the long-awaited new Alphaville album is only three-and-a-half weeks away at last, and allow a band we supposedly all love to develop and present their own, unique artistic vision?

Celebrate, be open, DIG IT...and if it won't grow on you over time - well, that's okay, too, because we are talking about art, not about a built-to-order consumer product, right?

I prefer to dance to my own beat
I prefer to sing my own song
I prefer to live - do you wanna come along?

True. I love 80s production. Dance with me is an all time favourite. I also like acoustic versions. I appreciate not everyone likes that bombastic sound.

I'm fairly odd in that I like ALL the albums.

Grooves.Land (http://www.grooves-inc.com), based in Berlin, ships worldwide with only a 2 EUR charge for orders less than 20 EUR (when JPC charges 12.99 EUR for USA).

Both the CD and the LP are referenced.
