Jane - Resurrection (1996)
The 12th album from this German band.
Jane was a quintet on this album with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.
The band had help from some female vocalists and a hammond organ.
For some reasons I do not really understand, Jane now split into Peter Panka's Jane and Werner Nadolny's Jane. This album's official band name is Peter Panka's Jane. It is even written on one of the cows in the picture above.
Werner Nadolny's Jane mostly released collection albums and re-recorded versions of old stuff. So I am bypassing them and the remaining eleven Peter Panka's Jane and Werner Nadolny's Jane albums.
This album is fifty minutes long and contains that many minutes of pop and rock. Big sound pop and rock with roaring guitars which is leaning towards heavy metal.
Jane has gone mainstream and commercial on this album. I am not sure what they mean with the album title. A part of me thought it meant they were going back to progressive rock again........ But no... I was left mentally scarred and disappointed.
The vocals and the synth/keyboards sound is horrible. Ditto for the music. This album is a turkey with all the trimmings. Avoid !
