After a worldwide success in the 1980s (Forever Young, Big In Japan, Dance With Me), many had written the German electro/synth-band Alphaville off when nothing was heard from Marian Gold, Bernhard Lloyd and Ricky Echolette for five years. However, in 1994 they came back with what several musicians and critics believe to be their best album - and one of the best of the 1990s. Prostitute is a 16-track surprise fusing electronic jazz, new wave music, synthpop, swing music, hip hop, classical ballads and Pink Floyd-like epic electronic music.
Prostitute is Toyah Willcox's third solo album. It is a concept album and highly experimental in nature, marking a considerable divergence from previous works. It is uncompromising in its style, containing no obviously "radio-friendly" tracks.
