Forever Maturing Is Alphaville
Paul A. Fucito | Washington, DC | 08/09/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Marion and the band have matured with each album and while most people recall the pop of Forever Young & Big In Japan (although hardly enough to actually make them a household name stateside) this album has a more mature and sophisticated electronic sound. As always, Gold's vocals are otherworldly and few can match his sound and range (accept Morten Harket of A-ha) and the music truly elevates his voice. "Fools" and "The Impossible Dream" were stand out singles, but "Iron John" is so infectious and easily the greatest Alphaville song EVER. The reggae-tinged "Faith" sounds like the opening track to a fun summer blockbuster movie and is guaranteed to get you going in the morning. The title seems so far removed from the music, and perhaps many people can't figure it out, but this album is fantastic."
The best album of 1994 (Perhaps the album of the decade!)

"There is a definite crime involved with this album, the crime of neglect. eight years ago America was deprived of the most complex, compelling and dynamic material thus created by AV. One can understand how threatened the American labels felt when they heard this music. After hearing this sound why would you want to go back to the radio? Okay, enough of the polemics.
Prostitute is a vital album. It reflects a difficult time in the bands' history. The themes presented here are deep, meaningful and stirring. Gold, Echolette and Lloyd don't make this an easy experience - this isn't Forever Young. The previous albums allow you to visit them. Prostitute is a complete experience; one best followed from start to finish.
The sound is dark, mature and far more sophisticated than most synth-bands. I consider 'The Impossible Dream', 'Iron John' and 'Euphoria' to be among the best work they've ever done.

A defining album of the 1990's, quite possibly THE defining album of the 90s. Yes, Salvation is excellent but there is something inherently more powerful in this haunting tome.Listen and perpare to be moved."

"I like most the songs on this album. Some songs were weird but good. I love these guys so much i will like almost anything they do. Not as good as old stuff but still a keeper."
