Album of the Week has been retired from the wiki after many years of being run due to lack of nominations and a steady schedule. While you're here, why not check out the archive or nominate an Artist of the Month?
The Album of the Week is a fun way to get exposed to some new music or maybe learn more about songs and albums you already know.
The way it works is this: anyone can nominate an album on the Album of the Week talk page. Once approved, the nominations are then moved to the queue. One nomination is then pulled each week from the queue and displayed as "Album of the Week" on the LyricWiki Main Page. The user's personal thoughts about the album, their reason for making the nomination, is also added to the album's talk page (together with the nifty green badge on the right!). After the week is over, the nomination is moved from the Main Page to this archive.
So now you know how it works, why not head on over to the talk page and nominate an album today!
I chose this album because with "D" there finally is an album that contains what can proudly and honestly be called "German music": first of all and unlike many modern German artists, Die Prinzen sing in German. As most of them sang in the Thomanerchor or the Dresdner Kreuzchor, you could say they were raised there and the band was "Made in Germany". Furthermore it proofs that they can sing without AutoTune, and you hear that they are actually having non-digital talent. "D" itself is a mixture of pop and rock music. With "D", they raised a monument for Germany in a musical way: two of their songs on "D" are directly related to Germany. Of course, the encomium on Germany, the song Deutschland (= "Germany"), is riddled with self-irony and sarcasm; this song is not meant to be taken serious, and that is why the lyrics are plain hilarious. Most of the songs on "D" are what I call feel-good music: medium to fast paced, major keys, multiple voices. The album contains 15 tracks, and 8 songs belong to my favourite songs – which is 8 times as much as usually... This album is actually an advertisement for German pop music.
