This album was my absolute most favorite for around ten years until only recently. The break away from the traditional 80's techno-pop sound in their previous albums is very noticeable and refreshing. The lyrics sound like poetry, not the characteristic whining of today's alternative. From the jazzy Summer Rain, to the mellow neo-swing sound of Anyway, more than five years ahead of it's time; the fantastic, without being obnoxious, electric guitar solo of Blacky Schwarz Ruszczynski on Romeos, and the laudable attempt to emulate 50's rockabilly on Ariana. I fell in love with it the first time I heard it, but even if you don't, it will still grow on you. One of the few albums I have where every song actually sounds different. This is the one by Alphaville that shouldn't have to be imported.
