La Düsseldorf - Individuellos (1980)
Individuellos is a grand affair indeed. There are moments of absolute clarity, far beyond anything the band produced prior. Beautiful keys and warm fuzzy synths, combined with guitar licks that would make even Eno blush, vocal chants to dance, inspired production, soothing field recordings, all scattered between symphonic pop hooks that cant help but make you bop. This is now my favorite Düsseldorf album, undoubtedly (though the last song does kinda drop it). Pay attention to Fleshback all you morphodites, and dig on to the sweet sunshine!
Harmoniously seeking the great new dawn!
