Alphaville, Discography: A Guide to the German Synth-Pop Band's Albums


Alphaville is a German synth-pop band that rose to fame in the 1980s with hits like "Big in Japan", "Forever Young", and "Sounds Like a Melody". The band was formed in 1982 by singers Marian Gold, Bernhard Lloyd, and Frank Mertens, who later left and was replaced by Ricky Echolette. Alphaville has released nine studio albums, four live albums, and several compilations and remixes over the years. Here is a brief overview of their discography:


Forever Young (1984): The debut album of Alphaville, featuring their most popular songs like "Big in Japan", "Forever Young", and "Sounds Like a Melody". The album was a huge success in Europe and reached the top 10 in several countries. It also received positive reviews from critics who praised its catchy melodies and futuristic lyrics.


Afternoons in Utopia (1986): The second album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "Dance with Me", "Jerusalem", and "Universal Daddy". The album was more experimental and diverse than their previous one, incorporating elements of rock, jazz, and classical music. The album was also well-received by critics and fans, but did not match the commercial success of Forever Young.


The Breathtaking Blue (1989): The third album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "Romeos", "Summer Rain", and "Mysteries of Love". The album was a departure from their synth-pop sound, opting for a more organic and acoustic approach. The album was accompanied by a film called Songlines, which featured videos for each song directed by different filmmakers. The album received mixed reviews from critics and was a moderate success in Europe.


Prostitute (1994): The fourth album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "Fools", "The Impossible Dream", and "Paranoia". The album was a dark and introspective work that dealt with themes like religion, politics, and sexuality. The album was also the first one without Ricky Echolette, who left the band in 1990. The album received mostly negative reviews from critics and was a commercial failure.


Salvation (1997): The fifth album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "Wishful Thinking", "Flame", and "Soul Messiah". The album was a return to their synth-pop roots, with more upbeat and optimistic songs. The album was also the first one with new members Martin Lister on keyboards and David Goodes on guitar. The album received positive reviews from critics and fans, but did not sell well.


CrazyShow (2003): The sixth album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "State of Dreams", "Moon Girl", and "Wonderboy". The album was a four-disc box set that contained unreleased songs, demos, remixes, and live recordings from their career. The album was a fan club exclusive release that was not available in stores. The album received favorable reviews from fans who appreciated its rarity and diversity.


Catching Rays on Giant (2010): The seventh album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "I Die for You Today", "Song for No One", and "Call Me". The album was their first studio album in 13 years and marked a comeback for the band. The album was also the last one with Martin Lister, who died in 2014. The album received positive reviews from critics and fans who welcomed their return to form.


Strange Attractor (2017): The eighth album of Alphaville, featuring songs like "Heartbreak City", "Giants", and "Around the Universe". The album was their first one with new members Carsten Brocker on keyboards and Jakob Kiersch on drums. The album was also their first one to be crowdfunded by fans through PledgeMusic. The album received mixed reviews from critics who praised its production but criticized its lack of originality.
