Sexyland it's seems to me a great song it's very hard for me to say what song is the best but i can say : Hnaadful of darkness, Sexyland, House of Ghosts, Around the Universe , and of course Beyond the Laughing Sky made me be awake 3 nights one after another and that it's a fact, a real one i and will do it again for songs like this ones even if it kills me. Love Alphaville and thank you for all that you do. Real emotions

Those five songs are my favorites, played on a continuous loop

Buna, Andrei! Wanna help me get the new Alphaville single on the Romanian radio stations? My Romanian language skills suck, so I really need help.


Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

Well you cannot please everyone. Some criticised CROG for being too poppy and wanted something less commercial. We all have different ideas about AV should sound.

I like Sexyland because it sounds very 80s. I guess this is the reason why most hate it. I am not a huge fan of the subject matter however. A man admiring a porn poster as a work of art is a little corny if you ask me.

House of Ghosts reminds me a little of Call Me.

I haven't heard Beyond yet as I still have to finish the album from what I understand it's an acoustic song with no synths.

I only bought the digital version so don't have a booklet. Does anyone have a breakdown of who wrote each track?

Which is what makes it funny how much people seem to like "Beyond The Laughing Sky" (including me—it and Handful Of Darkness are my favorites so far). It feels like a distinctly different track for AV.

My overall thought on the album is why I'm not sure I'd call it my favorite, there's a lot I like, and taken as a whole, it feels more balanced across all of the band's members. Although, I say this not being nearly as well versed as some of you in understanding AV's song-writing process or how collaborative Marian is. Put another way, it feels more like a full-band album rather than a songwriter-keyboardist album.
