Image of Wolfsheim


Wolfsheim was formed in 1987 by the brothers Markus and Olli Reinhardt, and Pompejo Ricciardi. The name wasn't taken from the city in the Rheinland-Pfalz, but from none other than Scott Fritzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. They recorded a demo tape and three months later Ricciardi left the band, to be replaced by Peter Heppner. Heppner, who was recommended by Ricciardi, already knew ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic compilation of dark dance tracks 5 May 2000
By Kent David Kelly - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Wolfsheim is one of the most under-rated synth groups in existence. The obvious comparisons (Depeche Mode, New Order) miss the mark; they are more similar to Ultravox (for melody and passion), Camouflage (for adventurousness), or And One (for their engaging mixture of dead-on seriousness and a complete inability to keep from laughing at themselves). The two primary reasons to own this are the near-perfect mixes of Lovesong and The Sparrows and the Nightingales. Of the rest, much of it will impress you, but not as consistently as on Spectators. And if you can't understand their sense of humor, stay well away (they cover Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town, after all)! A fine second welcome from a stellar group - try Spectators first, and you'll love this one as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wolfsheim: A Vice Worth Sporting 21 Nov 2003
By TorridlyBoredShopper - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to lots of music from both far and wide, taking in both imports and US bands of all genres, and I've had trouble topping what I've found within the voice touted here. I'm not sure what it is exactly, what place that those words seem to wrap around and to seep into, but while walking that valley of words I sometimes find myself filled with tears and sometimes I find myself smiling. With that in mind I can say that Wolfsheim is quite possibly one of the best bands I've ever had the privilege of listening to, with them understanding what it means to make masterpieces out of what others oftentimes overlook. They go beyond the veil of simply making music, taking all their talent and making something that is, in a word, beautiful. Rarely can I say I've been moved by something enough to call it that, but some of the things they've recorded has evoked feelings that most songs cannot find.
55578 is a montage of many of their former works that have been collected, showing some of the diversity that can be accomplished by them. Perhaps most well known of those works would probably be Sparrows and Nightingales, with its club success, and rightfully so. It is actually a great song. Still, it is only one key to a voice with the ability to express so much. Some are older and less refined than others, mind you, not as far along in the growth cycle of the band. Still, don't let those fool you. When you listen to them, letting those words incubate inside you, you'll find yourself addicted to the Wolfsheim vice. Sometimes it happens through the beautiful, with "Lovesong" being touted, and some of it reflects on how heartache and hardship worms its way into life, like "As I Fall" showcases. There is even the cover of Ruby, Don't Let Your Love Go To Town here for good measure.
When listening to Wolfsheim, you should perhaps sample and see what albums you like the most and then pick those albums up first. I personally like "Anyway" as a song to tout to people, but others have their personal favorites. Regardless, this is a band that manifests many things within their body of work and that should be listened to and given a chance because my words don't do them justice. They're the one addiction I've always been happy to sport.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of 'German Depeche Mode' 18 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This CD compilation is called "Wolfsheim 87-95" in Germany, featuring essentials of the 2-head-band. If you like synthpop with a dark flair, i.e. Depeche Mode, give it a try... Some tracks are remixed or extended (imo for the better) and have moved clearly to the 90's-sound. Carlos Peron (who assisted on early and recent Yello recordings) had a helping hand with his room-909-sample equipment and knowledge. Texts are mostly in english, a few in german, and all of them not of the usual easy-listening type.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome band! 29 Mar 2000
By Vinicio Valencia - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This band is awesome. Just listen at "Lovesong", all its electronic sounds and arrangements are really perfect: you won't be dissapointed. Appart of this "The Sparrows And The Nightingales" it is a pop-classic song. If you are starting to consider this band for your private Wolfsheim collection, I advice to get first Spectators(99) and after that this item. In fact this album contains some songs from previous releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite Band 9 Feb 2005
By I Heart Art - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Wolfsheim is one of my new favorites. I've been a devoted 80's synth and new wave fan for years and years. I was just thrilled out of my mind when I discovered these newer synth bands (although technically Wolfsheim has been around since the 80's). Wolfsheim's music is original, heart-felt, catchy and the music won't get out of my head! The lead singer has a unique and amazing voice and the lyrics are so passionate and meaningful. This CD has a lot of great stuff, and some less than great stuff. I would first recommend their two recent albums "Spectators" and "Casting Shadows", which are flawless, in my opinion. If you find you can't get enough of these guys, then I would buy this CD. The reason I give it four stars is because their sound wasn't quite as developed. The songs aren't quite as catchy or polished as their newer albums. But after a few listens, the songs do begin to grow on you. Another bonus to buying this CD is the booklet, which has lots of great pictures of the band. So if you're just getting into Wolfsheim, I would make this purchase number three.
