Tokyo Hotel: 2001 (Sony)
The rock group Tokio Hotel from Saxony-Anhalt and California presents a memorable late work. It is about the memory of the past youth and growing old. Under the songs, tormented voices of ghosts moan from those who have just died. Sometimes the singer forgets in which language he sings. It’s best to dance a slow waltz to this music or dress up as a dying worm. Jens Balzer, The Time

Neil Young with Crazy Horse: World Record (Reprise)
Nervousness among the Neil Young fans: the master hasn’t released anything for weeks. But now: “World Record”. No archive material, but eleven fresh tracks with Crazy Horse. It’s about the whole thing: we have to love our planet and save it. No wars, only love. Neil Young transports these supposedly naïve messages sometimes as a country rocker, sometimes flanked by massive walls of guitars. Rick Rubin produced. Even if the record doesn’t change the world, one is happy about decent new material from the old master, who is now already 77 years old. Andreas Mueller, moderator

Richard Dawson: The Ruby Cord (Domino)
There is no one in contemporary pop who makes music as idiosyncratic as Richard Dawson. On his new album, the British folk singer uses whimsical pop arrangements to delve into the oddities of modern life. In one piece sometimes 41 minutes long. Are we in the post-apocalypse yet? In any case, it’s the strangely enchanted world of an artist who doesn’t need to curry favor. Juliane Reil, Deutschlandfunk Kultur

Malva: The glare in my head (Trikont)
The pieces by the 20-year-old Munich singer Malva, who sometimes writes the lyrics in German and sometimes in English, are about crazy ideas, shadows and candied grief. Together with her musical partner Quirin Ebnet, she has managed to create a fine autumn album that dances between songwriter pop, chanson and poetry. Nadine Lange, daily mirror
