The most popular song of this album is undoubtedly "99 Luftballons", which became a number one hit worldwide in 1984. It is currently still the only German-language pop hit to ever achieve this status. Although I personally like every song found in this album, the songs "Kino", "Vollmond", "Nur getraeumt", and "Leuchtturm" particularly stand out as excellent songs for me. Therefore, I highly recommend this album to everyone--both Nena and non-Nena fans alike.

famous tongue, Andy Warhol's design). I lived for three years
in Germany, so I was familiar with the language by the time
this LP got out. My criteria then were different than today,
but I still think this is a magnificent LP / CD.
This is definitely no concept album. It travels through all
kinds of sceneries from power pop (Kino) to American country rock (Vollmond, a fantastic tune!) and from straight rock
(Noch Einmal) to kitsch (Indianer).
Their famous anti-war classic 99 Luftballons may be one of
the most successful songs of the 80's all over the world,
but there are a lot of tunes that deserve some attention
over here. Simple & powerful Nur Getraumt (Nena's first
super hit in Germany) is reason enough to hit the dancefloor,
Leuchtturm is a catchy pop masterpiece that grows into you
and my personal favorite her little reggae yawn Ich Bleib
Im Bett, not exactly what you expect to come out of a German
band. All in all this is an outstanding effort from
Nena (it's also the band's name) but if you don't speak
the language or don't intend to learn German in the near
future you better think twice. However stay away from
any English version of Nena's songs, cause you won't get
the right feeling out of them not to mention the sour taste
in your mouth.
Longtime concert favorites as "Nur geträumt", "Volmond" and "Leuchtturm" are other strong songs that have shown durability and which are titles Nena later chose to re-record in new exciting versions.
Among the lesser-known track the opening track "Kino" is also worth noting.
Nena, who over time has evolved to become a very competent songwriter, are here credited for the lyrics of "Nur geträumt" and "Leuchtturm"; latter also as a composer.
A very fine debut album, which has a versatility and freshness that keeps it worth listening to still after more than 30 years.
