Alphaville - Heartbreak City short review:

Is this Alphaville?

Except for the voice I can't hear many Alphaville elements in the sound, which doesn't sound like Alphaville at all. I don't like the high pitched voice that much, it doesn't show what Marian can do, and that's a pity for one of the best singers out there.

The sound is rough and very guitar based, no synths can be heard, nothing that I really notice.

The chorus is nice and the song would work well performed live, but overall I would give it 2 out of 5 points.

Sorry...

This song has the power!! Thank God it's not going to be CROG#2, but something new, different. It would be boring if a band was still making the same music without any experiments. Marian said it would be a less pop/synth album, but more guitar sound. This time he has kept his promise :) I'm looking forward to April because it looks promising.
I understand some people find AV the synthpop band accompanying their first kiss or sth like that, but I'm glad the band is still evolving and changing. After 7 years full of waiting and uncertainty it's something amazing :) Keep going Alphaville, there is still future for you despite 30 years behind you :)

Good song and solid choice for a single.
I like the high voice singing for its boldness and Bee Gees' curtsey.

Actually, falsetto is a great skill for any vocalist, it's a sign of excellence and universalism at singing. It shows just another side of a vocal talent. And I think we've already heard Marian performing with falsetto on other songs, fully or on some lines only, like CrazyShow, She Fades Away, countless backing voices and etc.

The song has a very modern and stylish production. It's catchy, powerful, unexpected and experimental. For me music is about development and not sitting on one point for tens of years. All in all for now I can't say how much do I like the song in an absolute scale but surely I like it many times better than anything I've heard on CROG.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Don't you have a streaming service, like Spotify or Tidal?

I use Tidal and the single is there

Bad for you that you can't really love the song!

It's a fantastic new single....catchy, strange and for sure typically Alphaville!
Alphaville is not only the sound from the 80ties, but I am happy with the result and
it's good that we don't become a second CROG-sound!
I do for you today was a good song but nothing really Special for me!!!
This sound is much more creative and modern!
I am sure the album will be great and you will hear again more synths on it....lol...
