This is an absolutely beautiful record. It comes far closer to what Gothic is than Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim or any other band. Lacrimosa mix up rock guitar with delightful classical instrumentation (including wind) and choirs. It includes both male and female vocals. Lyrics are mostly in German with english translation in the sleeve.
The cover art is pretty striking as well.

A new day is beginning, and time is trickling away... 16 July 2003
By Pamela Scarangello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lacrimosa's 2001 album "Fassade" is a magnificent German rock opus centering around a tragic love that develops in the midst of a mindless, mechanical society where conformity is the absolute norm. Musically supported by grand operatic choirs and a full-piece orchestra (particularly the string & woodwind sections), this record is a flowing array of Gothic theatrical bravuras. Upon hearing the very first notes, savvy listerners can immediately picture in their minds the rising of the red curtain, along with a singular spotlight lurking up, down and across the ornamented procenium. And of course standing center stage is the enigmatic star Tilo Wolff, and high above him on an unreachable pedistal is his equal, the angelic soprano Anne Nurmi.
What is apparant to me from the beginning is that "Fassade" is heavily inspired by creepy, erotic tales of vampires. Wolff himself, as both an actor AND a pop baritone, possesses the same enticing traits found on any modern-day bloodsucker: seductive, cursed, and alone in the world; a freak of nature. Nurmi has been graciously given the role of his virginal love; the lyrics repeatedly describe her as being like a shimmering beacon of light: beautiful to look at, but destructive to the touch. Meanwhile Wolff, stranded on the opposite end of the spectrum, has the allure of darkness. As a result of this unfortunate predicament, both singers lust for one another, yet are aware that exchanging vows is strongly forbidden. If I could possibly pinpoint ANY highlight in this CD, it would probably be "Warum so tief," (Why so Deep), a song in which Tilo's desires gradually drive him to the brink of madness; his emotional bloodline (Mother Fear & Father Pain) keep preventing him from having Nurmi as his bride. However, in Act II of "Fassade," Wolff and Nurmi do spend a night together, as indicated by the simplified heavy metal guitar riffs of "Liebesspiel;" not only is this song the ONLY DUO between the two partners, but the rhythyms here exude the album's climax; erotic, sleazy and combustable. The only thing I have left to say about "Fassade" is that it's THE most captivating record I've ever heard; although a majority of the songs are written in the German language, one does not need to have them translated in English, for the album's melodramatic atmosphere alone is enough to draw listeners in. DON'T EVER categorize Lacrimosa as being a "rock" duo; doing so would be downright insulting. I urge everyone young and old to purchase "Fassade," along with "Echos" which continues on with Tilo & Anne's star-crossed love affair.

simply amazing 19 Mar. 2002
By "the_peetfather" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I heard the album for the first time I was just speechless. This is a trip trough music. This is a trip trough your own life!
This album is great. This is metal combined with classical music and with operatic pieces. The music is so emotional, so melodramatic. I have also never heard a voice like the voice of the male-singer. It's haunting, it's complete. This album will make you think, this album will make you cry, this album will tear you apart.
And do not fear if you are not a gothic-metal lover! I am also just getting in this scene! It is no hardcore metal!! This is faboulous A+ quality music combined with great metal pieces! This album can make you cry. Listen to 'Stumme Worte'. It's just stunning. If I could I would rate this cd 10 stars.
This is for every open minded music lover (like me) a MUST-HAVE!!

Oh My God. 4 Feb. 2002
By Jeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have never heard an album composed of classical pieces with such power and grace, and blended so well and so delicately with traditional metal, as Lacrimosa's Fassade. I am speechless. This album is a monumental accomplishment for the entire history of the Gothic genre. Lacrimosa has surpassed the classicism of Theatre of Tragedy, the opera of Therion, the excellent improvised violin of Tristania, the power of Samaël, the monumentality of My Dying Bride (yes, I'm talking about The Cry of Mankind), and the beauty of all of these excellent bands, and more, combined. This album won't blow you away. Rather, you'll be rendered in your chair (or your steps) rather motionless and speechless. This album is almost unbelievable, and I use that description quite literally.

Up There With Echos and Satura 19 Jun. 2005
By Lumazu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
So Lacrimosa brings in the electric guitar on this one. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, it is also not necessarily a good thing. This album, for me, is almost on par with Echos, but sometimes with the guitar, it gets a bit much.

The opening track, Fassade's first movement, is amazing. The choral arrangements, the simple guitar chords, coupled with Anne's awesome keyboard skills make for a wonderful sound. Lacrimosa is at the top of the game when it comes to composition, and this track alone proves it.

"Der Morgan Danach" is the single, and it's great as well.

In fact, all the songs are great until you get to the second movement of Fassade. There's nothing really wrong with this track...it's just too minimalistic for my tastes. Too simple. Not what I would expect from a band known for doing complicated arrangements like Lacrimosa. Then there's "Liebesspiel". Not a bad song, if this were a German grunge band. I suppose the fact that they pull it off indicates that they are multi-talented, but this is just too Rammsteinish for my taste. Last complaint is "Stumme Worte", which again is not bad, but is too simple.

The third movement at the end is, however, enough to offset all these complaints, as are the first few tracks. Lacrimosa is a band everyone should at least check out. What they accomplish is amazing on all their albums, and this still remains worthy of a five star rating. If you can find it, though, get Satura, and definitely get Echos as well. Unless you're into the grungier side of the band, in which case this album is definitely for you.

the masters of goth-metal are back! 31 Oct. 2001
By Carlos Montano Matamala - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This cd is a step forward for this band, because the symphonic elements are more integrated into the songs than they were in " elodia ", it's a solid piece of music without any doubt and it should appeal not only to the goth and metal heads out there but to the music lover in general.Watch out for the "inferno" cd if you want more of this superb band.
