Die Welt *****
You can hear Bowie in the highs and low of Ratzke’s voice, mournful and tender. He makes the songs his own and maintains their integrity.Ratzke rises with full fervor and conviction in his role embodying the style-defining century singer as almost divine figure, a protector watching over everything, David Bowie comes alive again.
Info radio /ARD *****
A Gesamtkunstwerk! Unexpexted and authentic every second.
Fuldaer Zeitung *****
The German-Dutch entertainer Sven Ratzke is not just an incarnation of Bowie. He is a showman of a very special caliber. In his crazy stories one gladly loses oneself. He also knows, just like David Bowie, how to play with his androgyny.A very moving and exciting evening.
Berliner Morgenpost *****
Ratzke reaffirms his status as a phenomenal, versatile singer, conférencier and allround artist. An universal artwork, which was celebrated in Berlin with standing ovations.
Reviews for the new album Where Are We Now
A very emotional hommage to Bowie
Irresistible. Restrained, expressive, superior mastery of Bowie’s music.
