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’.
