I think all previous reviewers already dissected this album enough. One of the best albums I've heard in years, few songs miss the mark. If you like Jazz with some swing and funk, this is the album to get.

Update: I was listening to some earlier Waldeck when writing this review and got mixed up a bit, this is Waldeck's best album and the misses here, if they can be called that, are better than most songs (99.8%) I hear on the radio!

I have Waldeck's excellent album "Balance of the Force", which I find myself listening to quite a bit considering its age. The tunes are somewhat timeless, the sound is crisp, it is a complete album that drags one off into a day-dream-scape.

Not knowing what to expect I got "Ballroom Stories" on a whim, simply because I liked "Balance of the Force" so much.
Well, "Ballroom Stories" is produced just as well, the sound is just as crisp, not a note out of place. That is where the similarities end.
Waldeck combines 1920's sound, singing reminiscent of the great Shirley Bassey, cool lyrics with modern Trip Hop components.
It is an unusual mix that works fantastically, is quite unusual and simply a lot of fun.

If you liked "Balance of the Force", appreciate bands like Morcheeba, Massive Attack, Nightmares on Wax, Thievery Corporation then this is a must-have.

Heard this at a local coffeehouse and fell in love with it. Don't know how to classify it. It's German, so there is a techno edge to it, but it's singer/songwriter or AAA, so it was perfect in the coffeehouse. Makes good background music when people are over, but I listen to it on my iPod when exercising, too.

Unique sound with great arrangements. 'Our Day Will Come' is a wonderful take on this piece. 'Addicted' and 'Get Up...Carmen' were accidental discoveries as a result of purchasing this album.

This was an unexpected gem of an album! great nostalgia feel with a modern take! If you love electronica/lounge and have grown up past the nonsensical lyrical garbage that predominates most of the genre, definitely grab this for some variety in listening pleasure!

Incredible take you back in time dance music. Google In Flagrante (New Zealand) and see how Waldeck's music can be used in dance - a little risque! Oh, excellent very quick delivery of product as well.

Loved the trip hoppy Night Garden album, but this is awesome and very classy. A hip dub infused update to retro loungy soulful jazz. For fans of Koop(Waltz for Koop), St. Germain(Tourist) and (Sacred Spirit, Vol. 8: Jazzy Chill Out)

I love all of your songs but, "addicted" is completely outstanding. I wish you the best of success for your future albums.
