Underground - 2005

Wolfgang Doebeling, Rolling Stone, Deutschland, 28.06.2006:
Aufgenommen im Angesicht des Todes, schnüren diese unsentimentalen Songs wohl jedem die Kehle zu, der den Grantler mochte. Coyne saß im Rollstuhl, hing am Sauerstoffgerät, mobilisierte letzte Energiereserven. Und wundert sich noch einmal über den Irrsinn des Lebens, mit bärbeißigem Humor, ohne Selbstmitleid.

One Day In Chicago - 2005

Room full of Fools - 2000

This CD is for all those people who might think I'm fading away into feeble old age.
It's a set of songs for the passionate, the heartbroken and sometimes cynical.

I had a lot of fun making it. My recording sessions in the U.S. (the first ever for me) were a triumph of fast food, fueled energy and lust for improvisation. I tried to say what I had to say as honestly as possible.

1. Sugar turning sour
2. I'm wild
3. More than enough
4. God watches
5. Whispering Desert
6. Candlelight
7. Forgive me
8. The Einstein song
9. Sugar Sugar Samba
10. Celestial Bride
11. Take your Pain away
12. Precious
13. Speak to Me
14. But I love you
15. I can't make it
16. Room full of Fools

Bittersweet Lovesongs - 1999
