A Moving Piece...even if you don't know German
TXP | Minneapolis, USA | 12/17/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A change of pace for master trance DJ Paul van Dyk, this very good song finds him pairing his skills with German singer Peter Heppner on what essentially amounts to a somewhat downtempo, but thoroughly inspiring journey through the trials and tribulations that Germany's citizens have confronted and overcome during the last 60 years.

Granted, as a non-German speaker, it took a full translation of the lyric for me to completely grasp its message of survival. But the included video (which can be watched for free at Viva.tv -- Germany's better answer to MTV) does much to convey the general idea of what is being communicated. As it contains a vast array of newsreel footage ranging from the Berlin Airlift and the erection of the Berlin wall to the fall of said wall and the reunification of that arguably self-immolated nation.

In any case, the song is well worth a listen or fifty if you like van Dyk. And the video...well...it's perhaps the best music video I have ever seen; as it's nothing less than a very short, historical film."
