If you love the three brilliant & classic DAF albums 'Alles ist Gut' 'Gold und Liebe' & 'Für Immer' then don't buy this! It's a very disappointing solo effort by Robert Görl which is sadly not much enlivened by contributions from Annie Lennox (not her fault). What a shame as a DAF album with Annie Lennox's singing is such a promising idea.

What you get is a set of songs of mostly similar tempo & arrangement with some very lame Bowie/Ferry-esque singing from Görl. One of the biggest disappointments is that Görl chooses to use a drum machine on every track bar one, depriving the songs of his amzingingly direct and emotional drumming. Most of the tracks have a four-square drum pattern and sound like a mix of 'Love Is The Drug' 'China Girl' and 'The Model'.

The absence of the late Conny Plank's sonic landscapes that added so much to the DAF albums (and many others) is also a shame - the album sounds sonically flat: a bunch of synths and drums recorded straight into the desk with a little reverb. Ach was!

1984 album from singer of duo Deutsche Amerikanishe Freundschaft.
I didn't like DAF but it was interesting because it was produced by Conrad Plank of Kraftwerk Authobahn fame. Unfortunately it was repetitive drum beats, real drums though, not drum machine, played along with sequencers and some poor sax. Over this was mumbled poetry in German, with no melody whatsoever. I think it was all improvised.
Night full of tension is a little better than this, helped somewhat by Annie Lennox of Eurythmics on 2 songs. The same formula applies, sequencers and repetitive beats, but the singing from Gorl is a little more tuneful, though the words in songs like "I Love Me" are narcissist to extreme. The final song is pure DAF-style as I warned above. No wonder there is no results on any search engines, ebay, or Amazon for DAF...
I sold all my DAF and Gorl in one swoop. Others may find it interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diamonds are forever 13 Jan. 2011
By Merman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...hmmmm where do I begin? When you lived in small town Nova Scotia as a teen you had to go by your own instincts when buying records; if there wasn't an open copy avx. in a given shop you didn't get to hear 'new' things. So I had to go by credits on the album covers/record labels/sleeve artists/co.'s/whether it was British/European - Americans weren't/aren't known for being very interesting musically so were a must-to-avoid...so I rememer it being 'Annie Lennos' and the Mute Rcds. label (I was a devout DM/Vince Clark/Fad Gadget fan).

I knew as I skipped the needle through and around the spinning vinyl that I had bought something that I was going to play for a very long time. "Gewinnen.." threw me off and some of the German threw me off a little/then at times was a positive thing.

Well thought out and well constructed, better than Kraftwerk, great synthwork, excellent vocals/lyrics sometimes lacking but who cares when the sound of the voice and the swing of the music carry you into Europe the way this does - pure escapism.

I've searched hi and low for this on cd - have the 12's of Mit Dir and Darling Don't Leave Me/love the b-sides - they're all here and they're all up to the level of the best stuff on the album. I don't listen much these days to DM or Fad but this I never got tired of.

The good parts are much, much better than the few not-so-great parts so I'm giving it a '5'. One of those undiscovered treasures - so glad I have this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars ANNIE LENNOX GOES DAF - brilliant but OOP! Elektra reissue!! 28 Nov. 2004
By G. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this LP went it first came out in the early 80s just as Eurythmics was breaking in America - this could be considered by some to even be an Annie Lennox solo album, since DAF's ROBERT GORL is fronted by ANNIE LENNOX on many tracks, including the brilliant icy, Teutonic electro dance of DARLING DON'T LEAVE ME, CHARLIE CAT, PLAYTIME, and more - Robert Gorl's creative peak as far as I'm concerned, even tops a lot of their of DAF stuff for sheer consistency...BUT...WHY doesn't ELEKTRA re-issue this CD so we can all enjoy it now? Labels listen up - there is a big audience for this cult lost album, please release it on CD!! if not for them, for ME!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sterling and Smooth Synths 1 Mar. 2007
By **Rob** - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow! I grew up 20 years ago listening to Robert Gorl duet with Annie Lennox on "Darling Don't Leave Me," which received extensive play on Los Angeles progressive radio station KROQ. I even purchased the 12-inch vinyl single which had the extended version of the song. I've heard about this particular CD for many years, and have been unable to find it until very recently, happening by chance on a listing on Amazon for an available copy. The songs are smoothly evocative of the 80's synth scene, well suited to both Robert's and Annie's vocal styles. Annie sings background on many songs, and sings "Charlie Cat" and basically duets with Robert on "Darling Don't Leave Me," a gem (see intro sentence above). You'll love the bonus 5 songs, which include the extended version of "Darling Don't Leave Me" and "Mit Dir," which was a b-side and didn't appear on the original album. If you see this CD available on Amazon, you should definitely get it for your collection. You won't be disappointed. Prepare yourself for a trip back to the 80's of extended synth lines and cool blue vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars ELEGANT ELECTRONICS! 31 Mar. 2003
By Ståle Myhre-Wollnich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Night full of tension" is Robert Gorls first solo album. In the beginning of 80`s he had to compete with bands like depeche mode,yazoo,human league,ultravox etc..on the english synth arena. That`s because he signed london based Mute Records. As an old synth-fan from that time, this album stands out like one of the best synth albums of the 80`s!! He started off with the 7" "mit dir" wich was a emotional daf-like piece. On this album he really show you what a true synthesizer wizard he is! Songs like "playtime","I love me","love in mind","wind in hair" shows his elegant electronics at the best. The singles from this album "mit dir" & "darling don`t leave me" are great tracks too! Annie Lennox appears on two of the tracks,and she sings "Charlie Cat"! The tracks "aist wieder da","beruhrt verfuhrt","eckhardts party"Mit Dir" and darling don`t leave me(extended) are bonus tracks prior to the LP! these songs are singles,back sides and 12"-bonus tracks! enjoy yourself with a journey through the electronic world of Robert Gorl....

4.0 out of 5 stars Still fresh! 15 July 2000
By Darrell B. Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I dug this record out of my voluminous tape collection to see if it could stand the test of time. And... it does! Annie Lennox (of Eurythmics fame) sounds fantastic, purring background vocals. The overall sound of of the record is Euro-lovenightlife angst--if you know what I mean(!) It should be said that Robert Gorl sings most of the vocals and is a fine singer. The songs presage alot of what is now called American Deep House with their repetitive hooks and spare and emotive vocals. I must have the CD of this record!
