I really enjoyed this album. Monument brings a new Blutengel sound that reminds me a lot of Electro and the result is highly satisfying. It's a genuine progression that yields positive results without losing what makes the band great.
This a great album. Chris Pohl has developed Blutengels sound and musically this album is probably the best yet. There is a greater percentage of German songs and not being German speaker, he could be singing his shopping list - but with such style! I love it. The only drawback is that this doesn't have the feel of a collaborative effort as did Tranenherz, which to my mind remains the better album because of the balance of male and female vocals. Here we have the Inccubus with fewer Sirens. However, no one else does Gothic trance music this well - not by a long shot! A really great album.
