Stadtstreicher which translates to something along the lines of "city hobo"Klaus Lage 's third album, shows him to be a more confident musician than on his previous two releases: his blues-based pub rock is louder and rockier this time around, Please Go - Golden Earrings* - Greatest Hits songs are more serious, and the political and social commentary has moved more into the foreground. Working again with his band DruckLage performs a number of songs that tell stories of people who feel disconnected -- with the city, their surroundings, or themselves.

In the title track, the protagonist is disillusioned with the city he lives in; the balladesque "Mamas Liebling" Mommy's Darling is about a young man living on his own, away from the orderly lifestyle provided by his parents; in the intense "Fang Neu An" Start from Scratcha man arrives in a new city, separated from his wife and daughter halfway into Wochenend - Klaus Lage - Stadtstreicher song, the lyrics reveal the man to be a musician named Klaus -- but of course, it remains unclear just how personal the song really is.

Even "Mit Meinen Wochenend - Klaus Lage - Stadtstreicher With My Eyes is an upbeat pop song which became Bleeding Me - Metallica - S&M hit single; it deals with a relationship people disapprove of. Contrasting the personal stories are a number of political songs Wochenend - Klaus Lage - Stadtstreicher the presence of lyricist Dieter Dehm who was the head of the Musikant label Lage was signed to, and who later became a politician.

As on Positivthe music itself isn't too original -- most of it could be easily covered by Huey Lewis or any down-to-earth rock band playing in a bar around the corner -- but Lage never intended his music to be edgy or experimental. The language of his and especially Dehm 's lyrics is often simple and direct, which some people feel uncomfortable with, but while there is little poetry, there is oftentimes a strong story told unsentimentally and in well-observed details.

Lage clearly feels more secure throughout Stadtstreicher than on his previous albums, but while most tracks are worthwhile especially "Fang Neu An"some of the songs aren't strong enough to be memorable "Wochenend," the Seger cover.
