goJA moon ROCKAH - Libido Cowboys
Synthpop The wonderful thing about music is that a skillfull artist can relay understanding to people who really can't speak a word of the language they sing in. This is exactly the case with me and goJA moon ROCKAH.

I understand a handful of German words wich I've mostly learned from listening to Nena and Kraftwerk. Still I can't help that I smile when I hear goJA moon ROCKAH's album 'Libido Cowboys'. The first song I heard was the title track, "Libido Cowboys". A country/western-ish intro starts streaming through my headphones and I actually have to check to see what song is playing. Don't misunderstand me. The intro is awsome. But imagine that you expect to hear blippy-bloppy synthpop and get country guitars. Wouldn't you be surprised? The "guitars" however, are most likely played on synthesizers and done so by highly skilled musicians.

Not only do goJA moon ROCKAH relay an understanding for their songs wich seems to be mostly love-themed with some erotic tones. I also get the the impression that the band had really really fun while making this album.

As I've already mentioned. The intro on the title track is awsome, wich, actually also goes for the rest of the songs. "Tropische Liebe" is another track that is really really good. Should I mention something that is not that good, then I have to mention the track "Geraldine" wich I find a little boring compared to the rest of the album.

All in all this is a great album and I hope you enjoy it as much as I've done.
