The first masterpiece album released in 1982 by Za Za, the secretive Neue Deutsche Welle and solo unit of Peter La Bonte, who was a member of the reggae rock band The Nighthawks. It contains a lot of nice electro-wave with reggae and Arabian elements and a witty sense of style. B2 is cosmic electro gem with angular percussion beats, a crazy chorus and a unique saxophone hook, and a deep, sharp-angled, wet synth beat with dark pad sounds and minimalist looping electric piano phrases. A3 has a wonderful worldview similar to Alexander Robotnick's classic "Love Supreme," and B4 is intense with its industrial, dark spiritual vocals and arpeggiated synths that play dissonantly over a very thick synth bass. The analog synth sound is great. Listening to it again now, I can find some similarities with the ideas of Yasuaki Shimizu in the early-mid 80's via Flying Lizards.A3: Die seltsame Reise
B2: Dschungel Liebe
B4: Vorbel ist Vorbel
