First-rate follow-up that continues in their German rock style. 1hr Sollt Leben is probably best described as classic rock and ballads with a mild progressive edge. Good electric guitar framework and leads — in fact the opening guitar riffs on ‘Vorsetllung’ give a mild suggestion of Wilson McKinley. Keyboards are well represented, including piano, organ, harpsichord, synthesizer and synth strings. Distant ethereal female vocal harmonies add effect in the background from time to time. A couple songs (‘Sorget Nicht’ in particular) are tinged with dreamy psych-edged acoustic moods not too distant from Love’s Forever Changer. The occasional trumpet solos seem to be manageable. Two songs in English: ‘Every Day’ (a folky tune with playful mandolin) and “Jesus Wants To Help’ (a slow Mission-like track with strong organ presence and cool echoed vocals). The remaining ten songs are in German. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
