Close to the Glass is the seventh studio album by German electronic band The Notwist. It was released on February 24, 2014 under City Slang in Europe. It was released on February 25, 2014 under Sub Pop in the United States.

The Notwist's first full-length since 2008's The Devil, You + Me is their first for Sub Pop. On it, the German electronic band's identity feels increasingly cloudy. Initially things seemed promising for Close to the Glass. Releasing the title track with its detuned beats underpinned by familiarly fussy electronics and Acher subsumed somewhere in the middle of it all was a smart move, resembling the kind of dubbed-out pop structures Margaret Fielder was practicing with her band Laika circa their excellent Silver Apples of the Moon. Better still was the release of "Kong", which comes stamped through with a forthright guitar clang, irresistible organ drone, and Acher hitting some wavering high notes not dissimilar to J Mascis ' falsetto.

Produced by Oliver Zülch, Olaf Opal & The Notwist. Album Close to the Glass. 1. 3. Close to the Glass Lyrics. Don’t even think I’d bring my face Close to the glass Or some other place Don't even think (Backwards words) Now and again. Don’t even think You’ll ever know If you’re swimming in Or outside the bowl Don't even think Now and again. Don’t even think (bring my face) I’d bring my face Close to the glass (Other place) Or some other place (Again) Don't even think (Backwards words) Now and again.

The Notwist's Close to the Glass, their eighth album, is a catchy and unpredictable marriage of playing your heart out on an instrument and the magnetic pulse of precise programming. Now, in 2014, we find the Notwist following up 2007's The Devil, You + Me with their most adventurous record yet. Song Title.

Throughout Close to the Glass, The Notwist lets many sides of its sound peek out, as straightforward pop-rock melts together with the pulse of Krautrock until they become indistinguishable. But, like its most recent predecessors, the album never feels chilly, even when the band wanders through a nine-minute instrumental ("Lineri") late in the proceedings. Even then, no matter how many machines manipulate The Notwist's sound, they never drown out the human heartbeats at its center.
