If you're just hearing about Tokio Hotel now, this is a good album to introduce you to their music. The band took the time and care to translate their German songs into English without the English sounding forced and without losing the intent behind the songs. Lead singer Bill Kaulitz's English here is quite good, something he apparently took great pains to accomplish given that his spoken English is frequently heavily (though pleasantly) accented.

Some of their songs *are* better in German. "Raise Your Hands", which is a special addition to some versions of this album, is not as infectious as the original "Wo sind eure Hände" from Zimmer 483. "Scream" isn't quite a raw as "Schrei". And the missing children's choir in "Forgotten Children" lessens the impact of that song. But most are neither better nor worse, just different. "Durch den Monsun", for example, was the band's first big hit, back when Bill's voice still hadn't yet changed. It's a very catchy song, but the English remake of it, "Monsoon", is equally as compelling.

The vocals on all tracks have obviously been rerecorded from the originals and the music has also been rearranged and remastered, resulting in a collection of songs that are (sometimes subtly, sometimes broadly) different from their originals. Regardless of whether you've listened to their other albums, this will be a satisfying addition to your music library.

Don't get hung up on the fact that the band members are the focus of millions of young girls' fantasies -- the music is good, in any language, and that's the important thing.

Scream has a pretty well balanced selection of hits from Tokio Hotel's previous albums. These guys make great music, and I loved that the lyrics are the same in English as they are in the original German. I would've probably left off "On The Edge" and added "Wo Sind Eure Hande", but that's more personal preference than anything. Must Listen's are definitely:
-Ready, Set, Go
-Rescue Me
-Don't Jump
-Break Away, and of course,
-Scream
Then, if you like what you hear, pick up their German albums, you won't be disappointed.

I must say this album wasn't their best. They did an okay job for speaking mostly German, and making an english CD, but unfortunatly it just wasn't as good as i thought it would be. The album pictures were done amazing, and arranged perfectly, but the songs sound a lot better in German.I rate the Cd only a 3, since they did atleast try singing english ,and that they could have done a lot better.

Tokio Hotel - German/English, it's all the same June 19 2008
By Bella Ray Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have both the English version of this cd and all of the songs in German, and I would just like to say that I am so glad that they came out with English. While I do love the German, sometimes it is nice to know what they're saying. Since Bill, Tom, and company helped to translate this cd themselves, I feel like it's still the same old Tokio Hotel, just in English. It really was worth it to buy the English, the slight changes in translation are interesting and it is obvious that they put some time into it. I would highly reccomend this cd to anyone who loves Tokio Hotel and people who also like it when a rock band doesn't say the F word every five seconds. A great CD and a great investment! I love this thing!

its defiantly different hearing it in english. I enjoyed the CD but I absolutely love the German version of all of these songs! If you're a huge fan you should have this CD. For the people who have not hear of this band or songs by them give them a listen! They have so much talent and their music is really good for a rock band.

Tokio Hotel's debut English album July 3 2008
By C. Filoco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tokio Hotel has sold more albums in Germany alone than The Beatles during their time. They are extremely popular in Europe, definitely THE most popular international band, and are now making their debut in America. This CD is a mixture of their first and second German albums, translated into English. Their sound is compatible with American rock music, and the translations keep the essence of each song well. If you are into clean rock music, I would strongly suggest Tokio Hotel.

1. Scream - 9/10. A rebellious rock-punk song about your opinions being heard. A great song (especially live), but is one of their earlier songs, and thus not as musically complicated as their later ones.

2. Ready Set Go - 10/10. Another rebellious rock anthem. The music is more intricate than Scream, and very catchy and motivating.

3. Monsoon - 20/10. The song that put them on the map. A beautiful power-ballad that anyone can enjoy, and lyrics that will make you melt.

4. Love Is Dead - 10/10. Everyone I know loves this song. Very Romeo and Juliet-esque.

5. Don't Jump - 8.5/10 - I give this an 8.5, but most people I know are very touched by this song, and consider it their favorite Tokio Hotel song. It is about suicide, and finding enough hope not to do it.

6. Live Every Second - 10/10. An extra track. Very catchy and fun to listen to, and sounds even better in English than in German.

7. On The Edge - 10/10. Great song about the negative effects of drugs.

8. Sacred - 9/10. A softer song about ending a love relationship, but still feeling as though that person is special to you. Very pretty.

9. Break Away - 7.5 or 8/10. In English, it is lyrically their weakest song in my opinion. The guitar riff is catchy, but the words sound awkward in English, because, for some reason, the singer's accent is detectable in this song. Still enjoyable, though.

10. Rescue Me - 8/10. A song about being left and betrayed by someone you loved. Some of the emotion seems lost in the translation to English. The German version, however, is one of their strongest snd most powerful songs.

11. Final Day - 8.5/10. Good song.

12. Forgotten Children - 9/10. An emotional song about children who have been abandoned and without homes.

13. By Your Side - 9/10. Beautiful.

14. 1000 Oceans - 20/10. ADDICTIVE. Great, great song. A bonus track.

15. Durch Den Monsun - 10/10. Bonus track. This is the original, German version of the song 'Monsoon'. It is the version the band did when they first became famous, which means that they were younger, which means that the lead singer's voice hadn't fully developed by this time. The singing is good, but he has a high voice than the rest of the album. This is no drawback, and gives a taste of what their German songs sound like.

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this album. This is rock music anyone can enjoy, with very personal, emotional songs that you can easily get addicted to. Tokio Hotel has completely taken over Europe in a matter of years, and is on their way to taking over America. If you are looking for something a little new and fresh, pick up this album NOW.

Bill Kaulitz brings it in English too! June 22 2007
By Francie Nolan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Tokio Hotel recorded some of their songs in English because they wanted to share their lyrics with others who might not know German... they wanted to be sure that the meaning of their songs was correctly translated. That is what this album is.

It's fantastic.

Anyone who thinks they do not like Tokio Hotel? If they hear Sacred or By Your Side is sure to be hooked

Incredible transposition from German to English....FLAWLESS! Aug. 26 2007
By S. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had wondered how their hits would translate into English from German, hoping the best. I wasn't disappointed. Der Wunderkinds do it again. Now you finally get the idea of what they convey, but not entirely as potent as their German brewed rock. Totally great in English with perfect rhythm, timing, and wording, but guess what? They're even better in German! I'm gonna keep buying their English -UK- (hopefully soon AMERICA release albums) but that doesn't mean I'm gonna stop getting the German CDs.
