The Rift (EP)

24/7 is the ninth music album by the Hamburg band Die Sterne . It was released on February 26, 2010 by the Materie Records label. [1] Richard von der Schulenburg got out of the band before the album was completed in 2009 because of different musical ideas. [2]

The music differs significantly from the band's previous releases. It is much more electronic and is characterized above all by disco beats, which have given way to the previous style of funk, soul and rock.

The musical reorientation of the band was largely positively received by critics. Manuel Czauderna from the music magazine Intro wrote: "The hit density of the 3-song appetizer" Der Riss "had raised expectations for the album dangerously high. And now? Again: hits, hits, hits! Twelve in a row. Perhaps her best album since "Posen". ” [5] Czauderna saw 24/7 as a consistent further development of the music of the stars.

Thomas Pilgrim from Plattentests.de was of the same opinion : "In a way," 24/7 "is even less of an alienation than a consistent continuation of the usual style with varied means, especially since central elements remain unchanged:" Wie ein Schwein "cites at the beginning Friday on My Mind from Easybeats once again a pop classic, "Gib mir die Kraft" dances a punchy spacerock boogie. ” [2] Both Pilgrim and the readers of Plattentests.de rated the album with 8 out of 10 points. [2]

Mathias Denecke from laut.de also thought the album was a success: “The stars' new listening material has been stripped of its text and stretched with electric organs, thus ensuring the optimum ratio. The new outfit looks good on the stars. The new record is also a bit funky. ” [6] 24/7 was described as modern and very worth listening to and received 4 out of 5 points. [6]


In addition to the band, several guest musicians took part in the recordings for the album. [1]


  • Frank Spilker: vocals, guitar, electronic organ, percussion
