Neon Golden

This cd by The Notwist is, in my opinion, one of the top five released in the last ten years. It is obviously one of my favorites, and for good reason. This ex-punk band from Germany mixes various electronic samples and beats with singer Markus Acher's haunting vocals. Actually, everything about this album, from Acher's waifish vocals to the soothing beats, could be defined as "haunting". The textured electronic beats meld perfectly with the instrumentals, creating this masterpiece. Download this cd, or even better, go buy it. You won't be disappointed. I won't even pick favorite tracks; this whole thing is a gem.

You Know You Want It
