One of Nina's Best From The Eighties

"Nina Hagen is like an exorcism put to a dance beat...and twice as fun. "Street" is possibly one of her most subdued releases. Her vocal quirks are more limited on some tracks like "In My World" but not totally forgotten as in "Nina for President". Although the music sticks to a danceable formula, it's not dated to today's ears."Blumen fur die Damen" is simply beautiful. Gorgeous German lyrics over a percolating beat. Listening to her wail the title's words in the background during the middle-eight bars (before the final chorus) gives me chills. But wait, after a few more Danceteria tunes we get "Berlin (Is Dufte)". Nina shows us that she hasn't forgotten her punk roots. And to continue the trend that started on the previous "Nina Hagen" album, we get her version of a classic hit - this time, The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations".When a lot of established performers were struggling to stay "with-it" during the 80s, Nina released a satisfying record *and* had fun doing it."
