Out On His Own At Last, 3. August 2011
This review is from: Solo (Audio CD)
Peter Heppner, one half of the now defunct duo Wolfsheim, has stepped out with a classy solo effort that shows how much he has grown as an artist since teaming up with his now erstwhile partner, Markus Rhinehart in 1987. With seven albums to their credit, all worthwhile, Peter Heppnner came out with one of the best album releases of 2008. In fact, the week of it's release in Germany it debuted at #9 on the German charts.
All but three of the songs are written and sung in English. The single "Alleinesein" which in German is a phrase which means "Out on my own" is abtly suited to represent the struggles that Peter went through to get this album released.
Like most genuine artists, Heppner is vastly underrated, even in his homeland Germany. This album is not available everywhere, but I know for a fact that I am not the only one who literally had to move Heaven, Hell, Hades and Valhalla to get my hands on a copy. I am in the US and my copy shipped from Austria. It was well worth the expence, (import fees, shipping to US), the search and ultimately the find. Along the way to this treasure I met some wonderful people online with wonderful stories of Peter.
Because Peter had to travel out of Germany for the production of most of this album, he teamed up with Peter Vettesse, a prodigy musician in his own right who has become a very successful ( as well as great, the two are not always synonomous these days) producer of many of todays artists.
This is the first of what I hope will be many great albums from this newly minted team.
P.S. Thanks to all the people (new friends) in Germany who have helped me find this gem.
