Footsteps 2 (Audio CD)

Customer Review

I was a long time fan of Chris de Burgh, have endured many insults of his work and his person and forgave him many artistic derailments or at least condoned it.
Now I can no longer.

"Footsteps", the first was a fat toad that I could barely stomach. But well, once you can hold something.
So now the second part.

I must say that I have never liked CdeB specifically because of his voice. It was his songs that grabbed me again and again and again fascinated - and I will continue to not be dissuaded that it is widely underrated as a songwriter. If he but interpreted the songs of other artists, is omitted for me pretty much the only reason to listen to him.

Let's not talk around it: he does not feel good as a pure interpreter. Without emergency he sits down so the comparison with other artists, other voices - and so sorry to have to say that to me, compared to the originals he lubricates almost always off. He's just not a Roy Orbison, not Elvis Presley, not Paul McCartney, no Agnetha Fältskog. For many fans, this means well: Chris makes something out of a Custom; for me it is, de Burgh has failed.

Right from Part 1 so we know the karaoke effect. The is here through isolated attempts ("SOS", "In The Ghetto"), a little further removed from the original, broken (which confine the experiments only in a slightly different sounds and timbres - radical reinterpretations will not find here ), but this is compensated by other, still akribischere copies of the originals again ("Let It Be," "Lady Madonna"). In East Germany was known as something "post-", but since it fulfilled the obvious purpose of replacing the originals, the expensive license fees would have cost, and the job was concerned by anonymous studio ensembles. I understand neither the music consumer, where all the original versions are easily accessible, even as CdeB fan who should listen to something like that, and especially why.

The production of Chris Porter, which was really refreshing time at some point in the distant past ("Quiet Revolution" swept 1999 for artistic CdeB largely bleak decade with a lot of momentum aside), is meanwhile out of sheer routine itself on the mind. Again and again these horrible tasteless synth sounds that are simply not likely to occur in the professional league. So do not even the three original songs fun that CdeB packed with on the album - for commercial reasons, I suppose, because it will be clear that not all the fans want to follow in his "Footsteps".

Chris and his staunchest supporters, I wish a lot of fun with "Footsteps 2" and undoubtedly coming toward us Special Editions, bonus tracks and DVD's, and a lot of fun then bei Carmen Nebel and Florian Silbereisen.
For me, "Footsteps 2", the first album will be, on the I renounce.
