CD Reviews

Wolfgang Ambros - Zentralfriedhof
Jens Haetty | Burlington, VT United States | 01/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is definitely one of Wolfgang Ambros' classic albums. Unfortunately, even if you are a native German speaker, the quality of his lyrics might be lost on you, thanks to Ambros' thick Viennese accent. The album is incredibly diverse. Songs like "Zentralfriedhof", "Zwickt's Mi", "Familie Pingitzer" are witty and full of scorning sarcasm, mostly pointing in the direction of Austria and some of her most typical characters. Certainly, the taboos broken in those songs are nothing in the light today's standards, but hey...sometimes it's not only about taboos, now is it?. The more calm, reflective and at times even sentimental counterpoints on this release are songs such as "Espresso" (a day in a Vienna cafe), "De Kinettn Wo I Schlof" (a morning in the life of a homeless" or "Heite Drah I Mi Ham" (about suicide). Strangely enough, both extreme sides of this album blend in with one another nicely. I have known this album for years, and its outstanding quality impresses even today, some 20 odd years after the original release."
I love it and I don't speak German

"Back in 1988, my boyfriend (now husband of 12 years)told me he heard Ambros played bright and early in the morning at a youth hostel somewhere in Europe. He immediately went out and bought the album, which is now one of our most treasured. Since then, I must have played this album about 70 times. It is that good."
