5.0 out of 5 stars Sehr Gut! 6 April 2003
By J. Crampton VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
So (to use a Gabriel phrase), the first of what turned out to be a 2 album flirtation with a foreign language for Peter Gabriel. Of course back in the early 80's it was always we Brits/Americans who demanded that the foreigners sing in English, so it was a bold move by Peter Gabriel to do it the other way round. This wasn't a commercial release in the UK and I bought it on import, mainly because (1) I liked the UK version and (2) I was studying German at the time. So does it work? Well - yes. The songs themselves, instrumentally, are the same ones as on the English language version, but its intriguing to hear Peter fitting the German lyrics into the songs, especially when, in some places, there seem to be more words than there are room for! The German language actually seems to enhance the darkness of Intruder (Eindringling) and No Self Control (Kein Selbskontrolle), and, whereas in less capable hands it could detract from the capabilities of some of the other songs, PG handles the lyrics like a native.
If you're after the songs, just buy the original, if you're after something different, maybe challenging, buy this, then try Rammstein! Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars ein deutsches review 4 Nov 2002
By D. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first purchased this LP when it was released. My albums were put away in the attic after I started buying CDs. Today I bought the CD and I am now listening to it for the first time in 10 years.
First of all, I am a huge Peter Gabriel fan (I did invite him to my wedding, after all). Second of all, I don't speak a word of German beyond "geshundheit." Having said that-- WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM FOR A DECADE?
This album is the German version of PG3("Melt" as it is commonly called) which is excellent in English; it is now a classic. Every Peter Gabriel fan owns it and my friends who are not fans still consider this one of the great rock albums. I am sure Peter initially did this version as an intellectual exercise. But it works so fantastically in German, that if this album had never been sung in English, "ein deutsches album" would still be a classic. It works so well in German, that Peter did the same thing with his next album "Security"-- but that is another review.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it. 8 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is great. If you can understand German, that is. The translations are perfect (ignore what that other guy said about "6 x 6" becoming "2 x 2" in Wallflower; Peter Gabriel just translated feet into meters) and the music isn't any different, so it still sounds as good as ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Album 14 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Any true Peter Gabriel fan needs to listen to this album just to hear how the songs change in German. In particular, Eindringling (Intruder) and Schnappschuss (Family Snapshot) get a new dimension to the feelings of isolation and loneliness.
For my part, I don't speak much German at all, but I loved the way Peter Gabriel's songs sound. It's definitely worth picking up.

5.0 out of 5 stars PG in German 19 Dec 2006
By Philip V - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have (had) both PG3 and PG4 German versions.

The music and Peter's voice go perfect with the guttural tones of

the German language.

I need to reorder these 2 CDs.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Legend / The Innovator - In German! 25 Oct 2012
By The Wizard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Peter Gabriel has been one of my heroes, since he went solo. A true innovator of music, as well as a producer of cutting edge music videos. To hear #3 in German, is a wonder! Especially 'The Intruder', 'I Dont Remember' and 'Games Without Frontiers'. If you've never noticed, the complete lack of cymbal work on this album, really adds to the tension of the songs. I highly recommend this German Version, as an amazing edition to your Peter Gabriel Collection. Security #4, is also available in German. Yes, they are pricey, but I found them more economically priced at discogs.com. Cheers!
