1,2,3,4 Stars 5 Feb 2004
By Armando M. Mesa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the better pop-rock albums to close out the 80's decade...The first track, The Different Story, opens the album with a high energy feel. Surprisingly enough, it was produced by Michael Cretu of Enigma before Enigma came into existence in 1990. The song also is highly reminiscent of something by OMD for a teenage brat pack film like 16 Candles or Pretty In Pink. It also feels out of place due to the different production style against the other tracks that were done by Schilling.
The most memorable track is Major Tom with it's almost lullabye-like chorus (4,3,2,1...). Everything else is very much in the German pop vein of the time with a bit of a New Wave edge...Much of the sound could also be a precursor to the techno stuff that would come out in the early 90's ! The central theme throughout the album is earth in it's final days and space or futuristic travels and explorations of mankind into the heavens/stars !

Peter Schilling is a hidden gem 13 Oct 2000
By "defendar" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD because I heard the song Major Tom on a local radio station. I was fully prepared to just love this one song on this album and just add it to one of my own collection CD's (That's why I got myself a CD Burner). However after playing Major Tom about 60 times in a row I listened to the other songs and boy oh boy was I surprised. From The Different Story to The Hurricane every single song was just great. The only bad song is (let's play) U.S.A., mainly because it just doesn't fit within the other great songs. My favorite after Major Tom is Lone Survivor, a chilling song about a man locked up is his secret bunker, surviving the nuclear war but surviving for what? Being all alone and no hope to ever return to the surface of the earth. The Noah Plan is another great song, really telling the story of human kind today. If we go on like this, our only hope will be to abandon earth. This CD is a must have for everybody who enjoys music with a lot more depth than your everyday pop songs. It certainly is one of my favorites in my collection.

Ahead of his own time...Deeply Prophetic! 7 Oct 2005
By Kate London - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Guilty as charged, I am a deep lover of the synthesizer. And who best to crown the king of the synthesizer better than Peter Schilling.

In "A Different Story", the synthesizer in Schilling's hands does not become an 80's bauble-it is an instrument of great power. One cannot bear but listen to the sheer beauty in the collaboration of his lyrics and its music. No matter which track you pick on this CD, you will not be left the same.

In fact, I dare you to listen to "Hurricane (Hammers On the Shore)", and not have your blood run cold! How can you listen and not think of Andrew, Ivan, Katrina and all of the other natural water-based disasters we have seen! Quite a masterpiece in its own right!

Again, if you want to become acquainted with a man who was way ahead of his musical time, a man who should share a throne in the Mount Olympus of Alternative Music with Ian Curtis and Morrissey, please, please buy this CD!

sci-fi rock 21 Feb 2000
By "luvkaja" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peter Schilling was a visionary. He has followed in the footsteps of David Bowie in his imagination. The Different Story is a great pop song...I am pretty sure Limahl is featured on it. Major Tom is an 80's classic (4-3-2-1)..we all remember it. Other standouts include the Noah Plan, Berlin (a hauntingly beautiful song, years before it's time) and The lone Survivor. Buy this record...I think you will be very suprised. And for Peter Schilling fans, it's all we have. Peace.

A Vocal Master from the 1980s 21 Oct 2002
By K. M. Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Peter Schilling is truely one of the greatest artists to emerge from the 1980s. Each song on this CD are enjoyable from begining to end. "Zone 804" and "Major Tom" have got to be the best tracks on a very well put together CD. Each track gives you something new, best of all none of the songs sound the same, as you might find with groups from 90s and the new millenium. Grab yourself a copy of this CD, it might not be around much longer with record companys now days letting classic albums go out of print.
