Vicky Leandros, Greek-born, and based in Germany,is a huge European star who came to fame especially when she won the 1972 Eurovison Song Contest with Aprés toi(Come What May) and followed up with many great "schlager" hits including the hand-clapping stomper Theo, wir fahr'n nach Lodz, a No.1 hit in Germany and Greek flavouring of Ich Hab die Liebe Gesehen (one of her most beautiful ballads). This more recent contemporary album, sung so clearly and elegantly in German, with a song each in English and French, comes many years later and while Vicky's vocal stylings are ever-recognisable there is a decided maturity and "sobriety" about the songs. Mostly ballads, the musical arrangements are creative and clever. Check out the Bolero-type backing for Vicky's German version of What Now My Love. Möge der Himmel, the title track is the highlight with its catchy hip hopish feel but other favourites for me are Breite meine Flügel aus, Liebe bringt der Schmertz and upbeat Schön and Lauf. And yet this album is not for parties - it's mellow - in a kind of Dido-esque way. It might have been nice to hear more vocal shadings to offset Vicky's vocals (these come through especially in Schön) but the album as they might say in German really is "toll".
