5.0 out of 5 stars A really good introduction to Tokio Hotel
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars New Tokio Hotel CD, in english...not so good.
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...

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars "the best of...", Jan. 29 2009
This review is from: Scream (Audio CD)
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.
