Bad Boys Blue - "Heart & Soul" CD/Album (2008)

 

It is with great pleasure I am able to bring to you a review of one of the most anticipated classic eurodance albums in many years. After nearly two years in production, we have the new BAD BOYS BLUE album, the first completely new album in several years and well worth the wait. Some things take time to get it right, and not rush. You will find that the album is solidly reminiscent of their most coveted style which they made so famous I in the late 80s and early 90s days of what has been thought of as ‘glamour disco’. A fitting analogy of this style, which has the pulsing beat of a dance track, but with an edge to the melody, production and nuance that is in keeping with one would feel is nu-age classical music with a full vocal. That sound is BAD BOYS BLUE, and on this album it is certainly the feel from start to finish. The lead single, “Still In Love” has become what I can see their biggest club hit since “How I Need You”. Here we hear the original mix version by MS PROJECT from France in all its glory. A perfect pick as the first physical single from this album, it has all the NRG anyone could possibly covet in a EU club release without pandering to easy commercialism like many acts have been doing in the past few years. “In His Heart, In His Soul” is a stunning follow up, with its storybook lyric that mirrors their most famous single “You’re A Woman”. There is a perfect female vocal on the chorus that is extremely engaging and loved by fans whenever used on a BBB song. The next single up is the solidly eurodance production on the Spanish themed treasure “Matador”. I think fans of 90s euro will really enjoy the synth riffs in this song, mixed with lovely flamenco guitars to delicious effect. One my favorite new songs is the incredible “Queen Of My Dreams”. To me, this style of writing personifies the distinct beauty of eurodisco. Utterly sparkling production with a classy romanticism and solid hook to the chorus make this to me one of the most brilliant new songs on this album. The strumming acoustic guitar chording brings a dimension to this song that literally make you want to get up and dance all night long! My favorite song on the album is next, and it is an absolute killer dance song that dazzles with a breathtaking melody on “I Don’t Wanna Know”. I am a huge fan of heavily orchestrated dance music that has immense concentration on the lyrics and melody – but also the instruments chosen in the mix equally. This song has it all, and I can only imagine what club remix versions of this would bring to it. If you like glitzy piano and bubbling euro string arrangements, you’ll find this to be absolutely magical eurodisco. It also has a chorus that defies get it out of your mind after a couple of listens. To me personally, it is the epitome of the best of BAD BOYS BLUE legendary sound, utterly flawless… I can’t say that very often, but I will here. A solid follow up is the powerful HiNRG prowess of “Make My Dreams Come True”. Lovely vocal harmonies make this song shine brightly which is hard to do after the last song! The production is strongly eurodance on the production side of the mix, but again we have strong lyrical value to the song as well. There is no doubt to me that European pop ballads are more often than not the loveliest music in the world. It is in that spirit I must praise the sensational work on the album’s first ballad “You And I”. As a long time fan of this group I know their music extremely well, and ballads are rarely produced by them. I have to say this is a welcome addition to this album with its gorgeous melancholy vibes, something I feel has a distinct DIETER BOHLEN touch to the track. I mean that in a very positive way, as I feel he is the master of this rather elegant style of ‘love ballads’. Just when the last beauty fades, the orchestration begins again on the happy and upbeat “Tonight Is The Night”. Here we hear some pretty engaging male/female vocal harmonies with a strong production and pizzicato string riffs that are just sensational. Music-box piano keys echo in the big room orchestral sounds on “Sometimes”. A laid back mid-tempo love song, to me this is one of the most 80s sounding songs in the album that compares to their earliest work and has a deeply nostalgic aura with whispering female vocals and dramatic string arrangements. Next up is another of my favorite songs from the album. “Show Me (The Way To Your Heart)” has the deep musical presence with awesome lyrics and a dramatic chorus and truly outstanding vocal production work. “Hold Me In The Night” has been a fan favorite since very early samples were released in late 2007, and for good reason. One of the strongest choruses on the album, it is utterly infectious ear candy – and would be huge as a club record in the most celebrated discos in the world today where the pundits prefer a great song and melody with their dance beats over superfluous and vacuous percussion all night long. After many years, this tide has changed back to this and I am thrilled to see BBB doing the style they are beloved for again. “Pictures Of You” is the second ballad on the album and has an absolutely gorgeous symphonic sound to it, and the lead vocals are soft as velvet here and used to perfection on this moving love song. The group created a terrific song for their most loyal fans in the world from Russia. “Russia In My Eyes” is a potent and clear thank you to their community for years of undying support, where I expect this to be a single in the coming months in that territory. To end the album, a rare cover is included of the classic 1968 folk ballad “Those Were The Days” by Mary Hopkin with a wink towards euro-pop in the mix. The group has changed many times over the over two decades they have been consistently releasing albums, remixes and collections. This new album celebrates all facets of the best of the BAD BOYS BLUE hit formula that has made them infamous all over the world. From their days as the hottest eurodisco trio in the 80s to their prolific comeback in 1998, one thing has remained solid – the quality of the music. For the first time BBB has been produced outside of the country of Germany. This is the first full album of new material since the 2003 album "Around The World". This album also includes the #1 “Still In Love (U4IC-Almighty Exclusive Vox Remix)”, and extended club versions of “In His Heart, In His Soul” and “Queen Of My Dreams”. It is quite a package, with 14 album edits and 3 exclusive club remixes. An astounding array of new material from likely the most beloved group in eurodance/disco history that has proved longevity is certainly possible in an ever changing and evolving style of dance music and can be with timing, great material and class still be loved and relevant today after so many years.

Since the beginning "Still In Love" was one of our favourite tracks on the album. Along with "In His Heart, In His Soul" it was a potential track for a single release.

 

But when it came to take the final decision we were hesitating a lot... but, then John and Johann got in touch with the creator and "Godfather" of BBB - Tony Hendrik so he helped us to pick "Still In Love" for the first single.

Bad Boys Blue - "Still In Love" CD5-MAXI (2008)

 

The fruits of the forthcoming new album “Heart & Soul” are strongly apparent on this triumphant return to the charts with the first new single by this legendary dance group in almost five years on the single “Still In Love”. For the very first time, the group has been produced in romantic France. The classic BAD BOYS BLUE style as all know and love for almost 25 years has been beautifully updated on this single with a new dance vibe that includes several genres recognizing the various preferred club sounds of today’s most celebrated genres of dance music. The first mix is a solidly eurodisco “Original Extended Mix” which is the most similar to what fans of the group’s 80s and 90s repertoire would adore. It is a nicely mixed long version of the album version with proper intro and break within the mix for club play by MS PROJECT to perfection with little change to the basic sound of the track. That is very important to me, as not everyone wants a club mix to sound that different from what is played on the radio and on the album, and this is the one to play if your club tends to feel the same way which is oft the case with such well known and legendary artists. On the second remix, legendary HiNRG production team THE ALMIGHTY ASSOCIATES (of Almighty Records/UK) provide a slamming full remix adding many new effects, percussion and a galloping bass line with shimmering vibrato and a big room orchestral feel to the mix. The version “Almighty 12 LM Dub Remix” plays up the beautiful piano chords as well to great effect. To me, this will be the mix most appealing to mainstream audiences in the UK and USA, respectively. Fans of perfect pop mixed into monster club anthems will fall in love with this new anthem. The “Elkana pAz Remix” adds a very strong electro sound to the song mixed with a clever euro-house/circuit sound to the remix, but maintains the melodious feel of the piece nicely. This version was produced in Israel by one of their hottest mix masters, DJ MORAZ who has worked with MODERN TALKING and SYSTEMS IN BLUE in the last couple of years on their remixes. The final remix that was perused was the fantastic, pounding euro-trance “Twister Hard Club Extended” from the USA’s master of European club culture, ALEX TWISTER who’s work never ceases to amaze me. Based in the USA, the mix takes all the best elements of the original version and completely reworks the piece into a monster eurodance track. All is here with a remix totally from the ground up, adding an incredible amount of additional production to the mix making it a definite big room club track whilst maintaining the beauty of the song. The ante on the percussion has been strongly increased and I expect to see this in prime time sets in the world’s biggest clubs in no time at all. I will suggest this takes the formula that made CASCADA such a hit and took it to a new level of NRG and production panache here. Also included on the CD single are radio edits for the Almighty Version, Twister - and The Original Album Version. This is the first time I have seen an incredibly beautiful melancholy eurodisco track from such a legendary group completely remixed into such a powerful and attractive club hit. Usually we are lucky to get one remix for the club today with this style of classic dance being released in 2008, but here we are granted several very strong and different approaches to a hot song by such a beloved group, that will be accessible and enjoyed as much by the DJ community as by the group’s legions of loyal fans. “Still In Love” is a single that exemplifies that dance music can be approached and work from many angles, satisfy fans new and old alike – and still maintain the elegant sound that has made them so famous without losing their original magnetism for flawless euro-pop music.

Since today we'll present you some interesting info concerning "Heart & Soul".

 

Today we'd like to give you the first details about "Still In Love".

 

It was the first track which Johann sent to John after their first phone talk in September 2006.

 

We can say that "Still In Love" initiated collaboration between Bad Boys Blue & MS Project as John liked it very much and claimed it as a typical BBB's song.

 

Also it was the very first track recorded for the new album, the first demo was recorded in Paris in November 2006, so in brief that's how the story of "Heart & Soul" began...
