With a violently beautiful noise thunderstorm the Mannheimers lure into the world of their fourth album to show within the opener that their songs are full of surprising twists - like here the melodic chorus. The furious start is followed by a carefree Donots-style alternative rocker. More spherical is "The Ones We Never Knew", which leads to a harmonious chorus reminiscent of Incubus. Track four remains calm and atmospheric throughout - breathing space before the danceable "Panic Waves". And this wouldn't even describe half the songs. The versatility and versatility of this production from Aschaffenburg is remarkable. On the previous album and on many festival appearances the band proved their live qualities long ago. With the latest release they let you hear what's possible when they treat themselves and their brave and sophisticated songs to a few more tracks and instruments. The richness of sound and the joy of experimentation arouse curiosity and desire for more - from track to track and with a view to the future.
