One of the strangest albums we got here at The Original Sin office is the latest offering by das Praparat.
This duo exists from Dr. Hyde and Nachtschwester K and for anyone who’s familiar in the synthpoprange will immediately recognize that this is a side-project from Welle:Erdball.
The music from Welle:Erdball always was just a happy thing but this album here has only one subject : child abuse and paedophilia.
Those who think that this will end up in something heavy is totally wrong as this is synthpop with a jazzy undertone, and if it’s not it’s more EBM-oriented.
It’s not that retro as Welle:Erdball, but it’s just strange to see such a subject being packed in such a musicstyle even if the lyrics itself aren’t that light anyway.
You have the childish innocence from the kid who knows not that there is something not right at all.
A very courageous effort for its subject but with that alone you don’t score a genius album…”Unschuldblicke” has its merits, it’s a nice break from the usual Welle:Erdballsound (and perhaps better than their latest offering) but all a bit too bland….
