Guano Apes' "Proud Like A God" contains a selection of excellent songs that rock with real power and authority. "Open Your Eyes" - probably the best track here - is a raw, thundering chunk of thrashing rock. The music on this track is powerful and could overwhelm a lesser singer, but the lead vocalist easily out-shrieks the instruments, to fantastic effect.
The rest of the CD is hit-and-miss. "Maria," "Rain," "Never Born," and "Scapegoat" are all well-done songs that vary between hard-rocking anthems and slower ballads. "Lord of the Boards," "Crossing the Deadline," "We Use the Pain," and "Get Busy" aren't very good at all. The jaw-droppingly stupid lyrics on "Lord of the Boards" (regarding an alien snowboarder) are some of the more asinine lyrics I've heard in a song in quite some time.
"Tribute" is an enjoyable song, at least for the first 5 minutes. The final 4 minutes consist of random noise from the various instruments, including the lead singer. It sounds like some sort of terribly misguided attempt at free-form rock/jazz noodlings (complete with plenty of feedback), and it's completely unlistenable.
It isn't a completely bad CD, but with about 50% good and 50% somewhat less than good, it's not really worth the price of admission.

It was about 3:00 AM, me and my friend were down on my pull out bed couch. I'm not sure what he was doing, probably sleeping, and i was rummaging through his large binder of cd's. i came across "Guano Apes", whom he had earlier told me about. I was beginning to get frusterated because i hadn't come upon one cd that i'd liked yet, but then the guano apes album changed it all.
After the first song, "Open Your Eyes", i was immediately sucked in. Yes, it was weird hearing a woman rap (or what appeared to atleast sound like a rap), and at first, well, i'd thought she was a man by how she sounded. However, the rap like song was somewhat catchy, and the more altern. rock styled chorus was even more catchy. Into the second track, at first, i thought that it sounded alot like an Enya song, but then surprised me as Sandra (lead singer) launced into screaming accompanied by heavy guitars.
Well, to make a long story short, this album put me on an emotional roller coaster, but one that i enjoyed. You'd think with all of the different styles of music that are explored on this album you might not like most of it, but the guano apes have a way of making it all sound the same yet different.
The only reason i give this album four stars is because over time and much listening the songs get old somewhat quickly. However, still a great album and worthy of the cost!!!

Imagine combining Jewel and Limp Bizkit or Tori Amos and Korn. It may sound outlandish, but you'd be surprised. Something along these lines is what you'll find on Proud Like A God. This debut from the Germany based Guano Apes was released in America on Tuesday. It was unveiled overseas in 1997 by Supersonic and Gun, and has gone platinum in Germany, as well as gold in four other countries. The album, which was produced by Wolfgang Stach, is guaranteed to find its way to the top of the charts in the States as well. The Apes are Dennis Poschwatta (drums), Stefan Ude (bass), and Henning Ruemenapp (guitar). However, the most striking element of this group is vocalist Sandra Nasic, who also writes all of the lyrics. Nasic displays an incredible vocal range, similar to that of singer Jewel. While she is loud and intense on some songs (in a style influenced by groups like Limp Bizkit), several slow, soft ballads are also featured on the album. The range of the band, when comparing songs, is also amazing. It is impossible to pigeon-hole this group into one musical genre. Proud Like A God combines elements of hard-core, punk, and a hint of hip-hop. But then, that is exactly what makes this CD such a pleasure to listen to - no song is like the one before it. The album opens with "Open Your Eyes", a song with a pulsating beat that is sure to become a club favorite. "Rain" is the first impressive ballad on the disc. After listening to previous songs, this is a quiet break from chaos. "Lords of the Boards," the official song of the 1998 European Snowboard Championships, is reminiscent of many well-known hard rock groups.

Yeah, right, this platinum album is from '97, but it dropped German charts not before mid '99, close to its US release date. IMHO it's the best German (with English lyrics) CD ever. btw the only CD that I might give 5* too is 'One Fierce Beercoaster' by The Bloodhound Gang. The 12+1 songs get their main attraction from Sandra Nasic's voice, which is of an undescribable variety and cannot believed if not listened with one's own ears - when I first heard 'Open Your Eyes' I thought it was a man singing. But to make it even better, the three boys handle their instruments almost as good as Sandra her voice. All songs of the CD (except 'Tribute') are great, where my favorite is 'We Use the Pain', but the most famous are the Singles 'Open Your Eyes', 'Rain' and 'Lords of the Boards', the one to get a party rock. Sure, they perform even better songs on their live tour, which maybe will be released on their next album in fall '99, at least in Germany. To put it in a nutshell (I love this en. saying), you can't do anything wrong when buying this CD.
