Alphaville Artist Snapshot:

The German trio Alphaville began its career as a fairly conventional punk-rock outfit, but soon rode the early-1980s synth-pop wave to international fame, starting with the brooding yet catchy "Big in Japan" in 1984. After subsequent hits, including "Forever Young" and "The Jet Set," Alphaville weathered personnel changes and waning commercial fortunes, persisting throughout the `80s to start a fruitful association with the electronica musician and producer Klaus Schulze on 1989's THE BREATHTAKING BLUE. The band remains well known in Germany, and, in a tribute to the longevity of at least one of its songs, a 2006 remake of "Forever Young" reached number one on the Australian pop charts.

Product Notes

Sure, it screams mid-1980s as joyously as any John Hughes teen flick, but this debut--from perhaps the only German export to sound positively gleeful--deserves as long a nostalgic afterlife as Soft Cell''s "Tainted Love," Yaz''s "Only You" or mid-period Depeche Mode. Forget OMD''s "If You Leave," "Forever Young" is the best should-be prom-theme the decade produced. While "Big in Japan" was the KROQ anthem, everything here is deliriously tuneful. Revel in the manic melodies of "The Jet-Set," delight in the guilty synth-pleasure of "Sounds Like a Melody," surrender to the international romantic intrigue of "To Germany with Love," and hope that VH-1 re-discovers them for a reunion tour. --David Daley
