"A Worthy Compensation" is a masterpiece of electronic pop - deep, timeless and melancholic with some well-dosed pathos. Songs and lyrics get under the skin in the long run, not least thanks to Olaf Wollschläger, who emphasises their strengths in an exceptional manner.
As for the album's lyrical content, the band says the following:
The carousel of life. The highs, the lows. The happy moments. The hardships:
"A WORTHY COMPENSATION… WHAT IS THAT? IT CAN MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE. BASICALLY, IT IS A REWARD FOR A TASK, A BURDEN OR A PAINFUL TIME YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH. SOMETHING THAT MAKES UP FOR AN EFFORT YOU MADE. SOMETHING YOU LOOK FORWARD TO WHEN TIMES ARE NOT SO BRIGHT.
FOR US IT IS THE GIFT OF BEING ABLE TO TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH FRIENDS AND PERFORM ON STAGE WHEREVER PEOPLE WANT US TO. IT IS ALSO THE JOY OF STILL BEING ABLE TO WRITE GREAT SONGS. OF GETTING BACK OUR CREATIVE FLOW WHEN WE THOUGHT WE HAD NOTHING MORE TO SAY."
The album is immediately accessible but reveals its entire potential only after repeated listenings. Also, the band harks back to its stylistic past despite the long pause. Due to Stefan Netschio's trademark voice and Stefan Tillmann's nifty songwriting, each track conveys a unique atmosphere without sounding rushed or forced - a rare thing for music from this genre. In this way, Beborn Beton naturally bridge the gap between the 1980s and current productions.
This is the stuff masterpieces are made of.
Simply put: "A Worthy Compensation" - Let the carousel begin.
