This band from Hildesheim has released many great albums in the past. With their new CD, however, the title seems to be program: All too often you get the impression that bored business people are at work here. This may be due to the sterile and much too clear sound, but certainly also to bores like "Out Of Tears", "Gimme This, Gimme That" or "It Was A Dream", who drag themselves along much too juice and powerless. However, cleverly arranged wind instruments ("Hot Pants", "Take My Name", but especially "Rain Down All My Way") bring some tension into the game every now and then. More of this would certainly have been the better strategy.
