referencing Why?, CD, Album, 537 508-2
Okay, I'll be straight with you, I bought this album as the cheapest way to get the long versions of their three hits at that time, "Read My Lips", "Why Don't You Dance With Me" and "Keep The Fire Burnin'". It's a trick I used a lot those days (same goes out to the Sash! debut album and Todd Terry's "Ready For A New Day") and in many cases, I ended up with more of the same.

This is a different story. Sure, "Illusion" and "No Need" are in the same league as their three hit singles and could have been hit singles as well. If these five were presented as a continuous sequence, they would make an exciting dancefloor trancehouseathon.
But "Fire In My Heart" is already a sign that one should not expect 10 copies of "Read My Lips". A 70s flavoured disco stomper, most likely based on the intro of Donna Summer "Bad Girls", probably inspired by other Germans Future Funk.
"Words" is an ambient piece, "Feel" a slice of drum 'n bass, "Phunkment" could have been a hiphop outing by Armand van Helden. "Islamic Nights" and "Fairytales Of Darkness" are progressive detours.

Sure, there are others who produce better ambient / drum 'n bass / big beat / progressive tracks, but right now as I'm writing this text, these style-breaking detours are what make this album worthwhile to listen.
