5.0 out of 5 stars Germany's Answer To Siouxsie & The Banshees 26 Jun 2001
Format:Audio CD
Aaaaah....those halcyon days of 1983, the height of goth-rock. Bauhaus, Siouxsie, SPK, The Cure's "Pornography" - heady stuff. And here comes the peroxide queen of Hamburg, Anja Huwe, a-howling germanically like a teutonic Soiuxsie Sioux with Manuela Ricker's wonderfully metallic, screeching guitar sound. This album is rough, raw and nowhere near as polished as later X-Mal offerings (although there were only another 2 albums to be fair) and does seem a little amateur - although 'Sehensucht' is a fitting conclusion, despite, ironically, being from their Hamburg days on Zick-Zack Schallplatten. This album is nowhere near as good as their next effort ('Tocsin') but is enjoyable nevertheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost goth, almost rock... 12 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
XMD, on their first three albums lived in an odd territory. Vaguely similar to early Siouxsie but less commercial. This is their debut and it is an astonishingly assured one.
The band show that it is possible to live in the hinterland between rock and pop without sinking into the awful mire that is soft rock.
The obvious challenge with this record is the fact that it is sung in German (their homeland). But this just throws the focus onto the music and the sound of that voice.
This is a worthwhile item for anybody interested in inteligent rock. It is a lot easier to listen to than it is to describe. And, despite its age, it doesn't sound particularly dated either...
Viva was a more accessible album, and it is probably best to explore that first. But this is where it all started.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good beginning, but not their best... 8 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
I would agree that the most obvious parallel to Xmal Deutschland to British record buyers would Susan Jane and Co. Both were obscure. Neither made much of an attempt to fit in with the popular, trendy thing going on at any point in their existence. Both could have sold MORE if they'd sold OUT. Thank God they didn't, or we would have been deprived of some of the best music the 80's had to offer... Fetisch is the kind of album that Siouxsie would have come up with a few years earlier in their own way; perhaps circa Kaleidoscope, for those who need a point of reference. Although Fetisch is, in its own right, a damn good album, it is very clearly Xmal Deutschland's first. It is full of good stuff that they would have done better if they'd done it later; and it palls by comparison to the much tighter, 'difficult' 2nd album, Tocsin. It cannot even hold a candle to Viva, an album that shows their intelligence and maturity, as well as the sophistication and musical ability that they always had. But I am biased - Viva is my all-time personal favourite album. Even so, for anyone looking for something different from the usual, and who doesn't require the rest of the world to speak English, Fetisch is a good training ground for getting into one of the most interesting groups in the last couple of decades. Put it this way, the only musical opinion, other than my own, that I've taken notice of in the last twenty years has been the Lord God Peel. I certainly heard Xmal Deutschland a few times on his programme. Is there a better reccommendation? On a slightly different note, can anyone confirm for me, the existence of an Xmal Deutschland album called 'Devils'? I think it would have been out about 1990. Or is this just my imagination?

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's German Punk to the rescue! 7 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Pop meets punk. Think early Bauhaus. This album has some lovely bass lines, a voice both agressive and haunting, and drumming guarunteed to keep you rocking. Xmal's later albums (like "Viva") are a little too quiet "goth" for me. Fetisch remains one of my all time favorites.

4.0 out of 5 stars X-Mal �ber alles 28 April 2006
By Lovblad - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This was qiute a revelation. German post-punk gothic rock that was sung by the beautiful anja huwe. It was very very listenable and has aged quite well. The first album would be followed by a much better second one.
