Thoughts on the Album
Music is one of those things that transcends any kind of barrier, especially with language. That said, it’s one of the reasons why I love bands like Sportfreunde Stiller, Die Toten Hosen, Die Ärzte, and today’s band… Madsen. I may not be able to speak German or understand the literal translations, but it’s the music that transcends languages and borders. Today’s album is the second studio album from German rock band Madsen, Goodbye Logik.
The album opens with the bombastic Du schreibst Geschichte. I couldn’t think of a better way to open this album up with. The vocals are sharp and crisp, the guitar work drives the song, and at no point does the track sag or get bogged down. Du schreibst Geschichte, which translates into “You Write History”, is followed up by Ein Strum. Ein Strum opens with some clean guitar riffs before the drums kick in and the vocals follow in soon after that. It’s a good alternative rock track. Ein Strum translates to “A storm”. One of the best tracks on the album is the tender and heartfelt, Der Moment. It’s a heartfelt and at the same time, heartbreaking track.
Short and sweet today. When Goodbye Logik was released it helped to propel the band into the German rock scene. It popularized the band’s style of positive, passionate, and social-minded rock and roll. The album has an incredible youthful energy about it, considering it’s ten years old. It’s simple rock and roll with infectious hooks and riffs. The tracks have never failed to lift up my mood. The lyrics found on Goodbye Logik are unpologetically sweet, irresistibly witty, and charming.
