Title: Error In The System

Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the German pop/rock artist's 1983 album. Peter Schilling's debut album Error In The System actually arrived a year earlier in Germany (Fehler I'm System) (1982) before Elektra released the record in English. What is even more surprising is the durability the record had given how fleeting new wave pop could be in terms of commercial presence. 'Major Tom' may have provided Peter with the best hook to gain an international audience but the album boasted even more melodic (and melancholic) anthems. 'Only Dreams', 'Lifetime Guarantee' and 'I Have No Desire' are also highlights. A biting criticism of the U. S. A. 's inflated capitalism of the 1980s, the lyrics are easy to overlook given how upbeat the song sounds. It's this dichotomy that elevates the album from being defined by 'Major Tom', Peter Schilling's only release with international success. This expanded edition features a wealth of bonus tracks, including original versions from the album's German release as well as 12" mixes of 'Major Tom' and the albums second single 'Die Wuste Lebt - The Noah Plan'. Features liner notes by Discussion Magazine's Stephen SPAZ Schnee including a brand new interview with remixer John Luongo.
