Album Review

Zwei Welten, the 12th studio album by German a cappella group Wise Guys, is divided into two parts that are being sold separately: the first CD, released in May 2012, contains 16 new tracks sung in an a cappella style, while the second half of the album, slated for a fall 2012 release, will contain the same tracks complete with instrumental backing. According to the group, the concept for this double album illustrates how the band writes each song with two versions in mind — one without instruments and one with full-fledged production. The songs on Zwei Welten feature the group's trademark good-natured humor: Wise Guys poke fun at the German train service on "Deutsche Bahn," offer a gangsta rap parody on "Ich Bin Aus Hürth," and comment on the horrors of turning 40 on "Scheiße Scheiße Scheiße." Zwei Welten, which was produced by Uwe Baltrusch, entered the German charts at number three.
