DAF ended the Virgin trilogy on a high note showing their diversity: "Ein Bißchen Krieg" finds them at their funkiest/hardest, while "Prinzeßin" on the other hand is a beautiful love ballad. Alongside other quality songs like "Verlieb Dich In Mich", "Kebab-Träume" and "Wer Schön Sein Will Muss Leiden" makes this album an essential purchase, not just for their fans but for anybody interested in hearing the development of electronic music.

I have this album, but the matrix / runout on the B side of my record is: V2239 B2 TOWN HOUSE instead of V2239 B1 TOWN HOUSE.

Although being the less known and considered D.A.F. release, "Für Immer" is undoubtably my favourite. There's no big hits like on "Alles Ist Gut" or "Gold Und Liebe", but here we have a collection of very controversial and dark songs. "Kebab Träume", with its ambiguous lines about Turk immigrants ("Turkish culture behind the barbed wire", "Germany, everything has passed!", "We are the Turks of tomorrow"), and "Die Götter Sind Weiß" ("Your body is white, like the body of the gods") put to shame any "Der Mussolini" in terms of ambiguity and playing with fire. "Ein bisschen Krieg" is another powerful EBM anthem, and "Prinzessin" my favourite D.A.F. song ever, a beautiful romantic love song with wonderful lyrics. Then, we have the usual amount of dumbness with titles like "Worship your hair cut", "Who wants to be beautiful must suffer" and "Fall in love with me". Anyway, if you like D.A.F. and miss this album, I recommend to purchase it, as in my opinion is not inferior at all to his predecessors (and I don't like "Die Kleinen und die Bösen" at all, ahah).
