Deine Lakaien – Crystal Palace


An unpolished jewel

The 'Indicator' is now quite a few years back and 'Deine Lakaien' presents the 'Crystal Palace'. Since the band has always stag­gers exper­i­mentel between Synthpop and Darkwave, each new album is always a bit of a surprise.

'Crystal Palace' is a well done album with an easy listen­ing access for 'Deine Lakaien' stand­ards. There is almost noth­ing to com­plain about.

Close to catchy

The track by track rat­ing almost looks like a wave curve of a highly dynam­ic song. The songs with the highest peaks are 'Farewell', 'Crystal Palace', and 'Why The Stars'. All those catchy song plus the 4‑Star rated songs 'The Ride' and 'Those Hills' are scattered on the album. Maybe a pat­tern to hide the weak­er songs?

I'm sure that the ded­ic­ated fan will love the whole album. For me per­son­ally is 'Crystal Palace' the best 'Deine Lakaien' album, since 'Kasmodiah'.

By the way, this album also made it into our art­icle ‘The best Synth Pop and genre-related albums 2014‘. Read now.
