Although I don't speak German and therefore don't understand hardly any lyrics of this record (except "Der Kleine Elefant"), for me it's a nice and upbeat album with sweet melodies. Would I pay the crazy prices for the original 1983 edition? Never in a million years. Am I happy to own the repress for 20 something euro? Absolutely :) Not everything 'new wave / synth' has to always be dark and serious...
That's the old 80s "Neue deutsche Welle" - it was better than most (actually, all except Spliff and Kraftwerk) of the 'New German' stuff in terms of style and the use of synthesizers. The arrangements are so clever that you almost won't notice that Vera Vanessa de la Palma ranges only slightly north of unable to sing.
Nowadays, like most of the analogue synthie music, it sounds shallow if not boring, as sure most whiz-kids can create those sounds on their PCs between two sessions of Counterstrike Source.
Anyhow, if you like the more avantgarde German 80's music, get this record, all of the Spliff records and don't miss ZaZa's debut album ("ZaZa"), which, like "Hab Mut zu Deinen Lüsten" was a one-hit-wonder, unfortunately.
If I saw this record on a flee-market I'd certainly spend up to $20 (that's about a hundred Austrian Shillings).
