Marius Müller-Westernhagen's new album "Das Eine Leben" is dripping with self-absorbed weight.

Our CD review.

There was this performance by Herbert Grönemeyer, 2015, live in Bochum.

Almost exactly halfway through "Wonderful Emptiness" he did what he likes to do: making fun of himself and his songs.

"And now for my greatest lyrics of all time!" he exclaimed with a mischievous grin.

And then blared "And a lot can - and a lot has to." Interjection: "And now it's going to get even better!" Namely: "The bridge is wider than the river." What distinguishes Grönemeyer from Marius Müller-Westernhagen?

It's the flirtatious art of being able to laugh at yourself.

Müller-Westernhagen's 23rd studio album will be released on May 20, 2022 - and it's dripping with self-absorbed weight and vanity.

Marius Müller-Westernhagen strings old phrases together

You could have guessed it when you read Sony Music's press release for the record.

It is "the musical psychogram of an exceptional artist whose uniqueness stands for itself and whose work, with its claim to relevance, is beyond any doubt." The self-image of being beyond any doubt is not a good starting point for a creative process.

That complacency resonates constantly.

Where socio-critical substance is claimed, the 73-year-old is in fact stringing old phrases together.

"It only goes as far as it goes" (Oh?), "And life is life, it's not paradise." (No!) The banality is reinforced by Müller-Westernhagen's pathetic singing.

Theatrically he swears: “The truth!

The hope!” And with every further cheer (“Trust!”, “Disappointment!”), you think that Hape Kerkeling is about to show up in the studio – Hurz!

It's a mixture of Peter Maffay and hit parade mixed with harmless rock'n'roll.

Otherwise: a lot of old man who mourns his youth and quarrels with the zeitgeist.

The song of the same name says: "And everyone hopes for a turning point/a good ending, a good ending.
