The song title listing posted for this cd are for another album, Old Loves Die Hard. Check elsewhere for the real song listing for this cd. It is a very good cd, as all Triumvirat music is, and highly recommended.

What the other reviewers fail to mention is the contribution of guest drumer Curt Cress. If you are a fan of fantastic drumming, you will be amazed at Mr. Cress's contribution on this album.

I have to differ with those who prefer the older albums over this one. The older albums are great, but when it come to pure GROOVE this album jams above the rest! Let's be frank: this is a completely different band than the older group. And this album is their only masterpiece.
The drum and bass groove throughout the album is just STUNNING! And this is matched by the tightly virtuistic piano, organ and sinth playing of Fritz. The singing is beautiful, and the songs are just wonderful. Yes, the thematic material is stretched a little, but Fritz's themes are SO GOOD, I don't mind the restatement!
Moreover, this recording is AMAZING considering the technology in '77. What blew my mind is that this CD remaster actually IMPOROVED upon it even more!
Sure...get Sparticus, Illusions, but that's a different band. GET THIS TOO!

The name "New Triumvirat" was the result of legal action taken by former members Dick Frangenberg and Hans Bathelt, who left the band after "Old Loves Die Hard". Fritz and Barry Palmer recruited drummer Curt Cress (an amazing musician who played at the German jazz-rock outfit Passport) and bassist Dieter Petereit and recorded another concept album dealing with the Roman empire. "Pompeei" is not as good as "Spartacus", but still deserves careful listening today. Good music, good lyrics and (pardon me, Grand Funk!!), good singin', good playin'.

Pompeii is an excellent CD. The music is in the vein of "Old Loves Die Hard." This CD, however, is a bit lighter overall and even more prominently features B. Palmer's somewhat flowerly yet pleasant vocals.

In my view, the 2002 re-master of this CD is just plain poor. The bass is too heavy and dull, and the sound lacks brightness. Increasing the treble, manually, will help the music to shine. Also, the bonus track is merely an edited version of the last tune on the CD, so its inclusion is hardly of value.
