5.0 out of 5 stars Why are these guys not bigger?!, 18 April 2001
This review is from: Spectators (Audio CD)
In their native Germany Wolfsheim are huge, but for some reason they havn't become overly big in the UK which is a definate shame as they have written some of the most enjoyable tunes in recent times.
The album opens to the soft sounds of an opera singer warbling her way through a few notes before the soothing synthpop style beats kick in and "It's hurting for the first time" wends it's way into your conciousness..never to leave.
"Kunstliche Welten" is the only song on Spectators that is in german, all the other songs are sung in english. This makes it stand out, probably why they chose it for the ep you get with the import version of the album. The Ep has two extra versions of the title track and a new song called "F".
You get some bands that are carried by the music and the singer is just there, doesn't appear to do an awful lot to make the band special. The nice thing about Wolfsheim is the singer really makes the songs, this is especially evident in some of the more relaxing songs on Spectators, "For you", "Touch and "Blind". His singing style is unique and highly memorable.
The four songs that I *really* like from this album are "once in a lifetime", "I don't love you anymore", "Sleep somehow" and "Heroin, she said". "sleep somehow" is a lot more club friendly than most of the album.. it's almost drum and bass style differs a fair bit from the usual Wolfsheim synthpoppish style that you'll have become used to until this point of the album *must not bounce.....The End*
