Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Sanctuary highlights Alex's first solo departure from his group Einstürzende Neubauten, with a collection of tracks that were recorded and assembled over a two year period, made while traveling throughout Europe and North America. Armed with a portable recording setup, he collected sound pieces from a wide variety of musicians . These sonic 'keepsakes' were then filtered, processed, and assembled back home in Berlin in order to build his musical sanctuary, and ultimately this CD.

The end result is an album than can be haunting, sinister, beautiful, as well as irreverent - but always powerful. Alex fuses improbable textures with highly musical arrangements. That familiar sensibility is still there, and Neubauten fans will not be disappointed; but more importantly, Sanctuary is an album that officially confirms Hacke as a solo artist in his own right, and makes one look forward for what's to come.

Review

Managing to be both cinematically far-reaching and intimate, Sanctuary is an aural feast. The wide range of music is hard to believe and sometimes to digest (check out the saxophone squeals amidst the assortments of alarm-clock irritations on Yours Truly), but there is such an intensity, it's hard not to be drawn in. --Owl Mag

This record is a impressive portrait of how diverse and talented Alexander Hacke is -from the movie soundtrack "Sonntag" to the throat singing in "Brush/Throat" to the rock elements of "Sanctuary" and back to electronic "All american Happy Hour" -it is like a journey from one part of Alexander Hacke to another -no wonder he calls it his Road record ..The ease in which he moves in the different music realms -electronic as acoustic is amazing and proves that Alexander Hacke is a lot more than just the bass player of Einstürzende Neubauten. My favorite tracks are "Per Sempre Butterfly" with Gianna Nannini for its melancholic romantisism,"Sanctuary" for its hard core power and Seven - the mixture of experimental sounds and heavy beats is great -I can listen to the record over and over again and always hear something new and intriguing. The small hidden video documentary of Danielle de Picciotto is fun too - most of the many musicans participating on the record can be seen here.

The best way to describe this solo work by Alexander Hacke is that it is NOT an Einsturzende Neubauten record. The music is not nearly as experimental and all lyrics are "sung" in English which kind of sucks. The opening track is very odd in which it is a repetitive rant of a female martial arts instructor shouting out instructions as to how to protect yourself from being sexually assaulted. At first it seems riduculous but then it kind of grows on you not to mention that the suggestions could probably end up saving someone from being attacked. The rest of the record is pretty decent but at times a bit disjointed in that not all the songs flow very well together. Although this cd grew on me over time I still feel a bit disappointed that it's not as experimental as one would have hoped.

I first heard "per sempre butterfly" and "sonntag" from a play list and was immediately hooked. Per sempre butterfly is now one of my favorites, and because of it I am looking into getting more of Gianna Nannini's music. Contrary to an earlier reviewers comments, the lyrics of the various pieces are not all in English. Per Sempre is in Italian, Sonntag is in German, etc. The style of music from piece to piece is very different, yet not jarring. I am buying the album and look forward to hearing it all.

this album just strikes me as being a bit average. I love senior hacke. I just could not get into this album. There is one great song "sister" if the rest of the album was like that It would have gotten a 5 star review. This album was not as well thought out as it could have been.
