I first heard of Peter Fox from a friend of mine who had just returned from Germany, and he showed me some of his videos on YouTube. I have been addicted ever since. You'd never guess it from the total lack of exposure that we get to international artists here in the U.S., but Fox's first solo album "Stadtaffe" is amazing (Fox was originally in the dancehall group Seeed). "Stadtaffe" is hip hop with touches of dancehall and with classical and jazz flourishes. While it may help to get a sense of the texture of this music if you can understand German, you really don't need to in order to enjoy this album. The music is rich, complex, and thoroughly engaging - somewhat reminiscent of Peter Gabriel in the way that he is able to seamlessly weave together widely disparate musical influences into a cohesive and compelling sound. My personal favorite track is "Schwarz zu Blau" because of its evocative description of the seedier side of Berlin nightlife, although "Alles Neu" and "Haus am...
I don't understand a word of this album, but his music is mesmerizing. The beat, tone, rhythms; the orchestra background, the female backup singers. I am over the top with Peter Fox. Oh, the fact that it came from Germany is such a short period of time, in great condition even adds more the the Amazon experience. Woo Hoo!!!
I don't speak German, but this CD is fantastic. Peter Fox has a new American fan! xD all of my friends even like him and always ask what I'm listening to.... and then I have to make them a copy. xD I was quite surprised at how MANY of my friends enjoyed it even though they have no idea what he's saying. xD i have even memorized the entire first song, and taught it to my friends who fell in love with him as easily as i did. :D Long story short- if you buy this CD (and I highly suggest it) you might want to make sure you have some blank CDs, (or no friends) and enough time to miss school/work for a couple days, because you won't want to leave it ._. xD
