With their two albums "La Leyla" and "Eternity Rise", not to forget the German rock hit "La Leyla", Ramses have secured themselves a place in the cosmos of music "Made in Germany". Occasional concerts underlined the cult status of the band, whose sound is characterized by keyboards and subtle but expressive guitar passages. To celebrate their 40th anniversary, the musicians have released a new album that follows the last longplayer "Control Me". However, this time the politically, ecologically and socially critical texts are much more in the foreground than in the seventies, which sets the group apart from its otherwise rather silent competitors. Rock with progressive sprinkles ("All This Time"), driving hard rock ("Virgin Zone"), balladeskes, garnished with a hint of saga melody ("Thirst In My Heart"), a Krautrock track recorded in the Balver cave ("Look At Your Neighbour") and a rather sweet number ("X-Mas Song") are occasionally still rooted in the Seventies, but are also aimed at listeners with a preference for more modern sounds.
