I got this CD as a present (after I wished to get the original album). The name of this sampler is really tricky - in fact, this "Am Fenster - Platin Edition" contains only 2 songs from the original Am Fenster album (i.e., the original, long German version of "Am Fenster", and "Der King vom Prenzlauer Berg," i.e. tracks 13 and 7) In addition, a short English version of Am Fenster is included (track 1). Track 6 ("Window") is an instrumental remix of a part of Am Fenster (which means By the Window in English). Anyway, what's important, not to be mistaken like my duaghter was when she bought me this CD: IF YOU WANTED TO BUY THE ORIGINAL AMIGA LP "AM FENSTER" YOU SHOULD IN FACT BUY THE CD CALLED SIMPLY "CITY". (Sorry, I was unable to make a product link with the word "City", but it is available through Amazon.com). To be even more tricky, the envelope of the CD "City" is completely different to the original East German Amiga LP "Am Fenster".

As to the musical quality: the album contains one wonderful composition "Am Fenster," and the rest is average at best. Among the rest I would only mention "Der King vom Prenzlauer Berg". This song, although quite simple, has a unique atmosphere (with the interesting synthesizer part - I guess David Bowie must have heard this before he released his superb Heroes album recorded in Berlin - the synthesizers played by Brian Eno are really much alike!). Probably their first album (previously called "Am Fenster" and now simply "City") is the best, but this "Am Fenster - Platin Edition" is no platinum, but rather rust. So do not mix it up.
