The new album by Gilbert – time jump not always hits in the new German pop hit with driving Sanderson bass and Ballermann phrases must be equipped. A year ago managed a very gentle guitar pop number, on the front seats of the charts the Austrian Gilbert first with the midtempo single “but I cry” and then with his Lady Lay (were my star Fangerin) and remained there for weeks! The whole thing was linked with several firsts: first publications in the new record company Ariola (Sony Music), first productions of David Brandes, first top-10 finishes in the airplay charts. Even in Gilbert’s home country Austria, where the career anyway already well, the recovery became noticeable: the album “Lady Lay” climbed here up in the top 10 of the charts! And yet, this success was not only the new circumstances thanks to but also the years of work and perseverance of the native Tyrolean, which went well with his life motto “The journey is the destination”. Extraordinary texts lay with Gilbert about honestly made, sensitive music. The means of transportation is his expressive and charismatic voice you recognize after the first syllables. On October 21, 2011 Gilbert’s new album will be: “Time jump”. On the foundation stone, which Gilbert had put together with his new team with “Lady Lay”, was continued with the new album consistently.
The tonal focus of production is the acoustic guitar, which is the attitude of great singer/songwriter the twelve songs that Gilbert can certainly identify with. Internationally competitive musical sense is here, there is no doubt. But the nonchalance, taken for granted, the charm that’s probably but from Austria. Gilbert’s songs are sometimes rock, sometimes dreamy. You can combine this quiet, even though it may appear first brave. Ultimately, it represents the rich diversity of life, Gilbert is important to emphasize. And we are in the texts.
