"I was introduced to "Bleibt Alles Anders" when I was living in Israel this last fall. Although I am not familiar with Groenemeyer's other albums, if they are anything like this one, they're worth a listen. Throughout this album, Groenemeyer makes good use of a variety of musical styles--punchy rock with gravelly guitar riffs, a touch of techno, folk, and classic string arrangements. My favorite track has to be "Schmetterlinge im Eis" (Butterfly on Ice). Groenemeyer uses a simple note pattern, which turns into a theme and variation--elegant and beautiful. Typical of his style, this song is surprising, delivering a quiet, sad love song in a way that avoids cliches and yet delivers an almost universal emotion--love unrequited. Groenemeyer uses lyrics in unusual, creative ways that have the ability to touch listeners from all over the world. His work is an excellent expression of music as an universal language--which is exactly how I believe God created it to be. :)"

"I have a friend who lives near Hamburg, she came to visit me and brought along this cd as well as Mensch. I immediately picked up on liking the music even though I didnt know everything that Herb was singing, but you dont have to know to enjoy it. Both of these cd's are great. I do wish we had more access to his and others music here in the States. Enjoy!"

"I love Herbert Gronemeyer and I don't speak a word of German. It's not necessary, his voice tells you everything you want to know. My husband and I just went all the way to Holland to see him in concert 11/02, and he was totally FABULOUS, just has a voice that won't quit. Everything he does is great, but this album is perfect. If he sang more in English I'm sure he'd be as big as Sting or Bruce Springsteen or anybody in the US, he's that good. We own this cd already, but one disk is not enough...."
