Product Description

Product Description

By the time Top Gun introduced this LA electro-pop band to the masses, they'd been scoring Geffen hits for three years. Here are 12 of their best: that soundtrack smash, Take My Breath Away ; the hits Sex (I'm A ); The Metro; Masquerade; No More Words; Now It's My Turn , and more!

Like Blondie, Berlin is a female-fronted new wave band with a lead singer (Terri Nunn) who can really belt, although Nunn is more in-your-face than Debbie Harry. Their music is submerged new wave synth-pop that is varied most successfully by Nunn's agile vocal arrangements. In "No More Words," she first yells and then drops to a scathing whisper, only to attack again; it's scary enough to make any man cower. "Take My Breath Away" is a beautiful from-the-gut ballad, so large and deep in scope that it commands your full attention. In "The Metro" she puts you on a train, sullen and melancholy, going nowhere. --Beth Bessmer

Many people have heard of the group Berlin from their #1 song "Take My Breath Away" from the motion picture "Top Gun". But I find that few people know Berlin. The sound you hear from Berlin on that #1 song is very different than what Berlin normally does. Berlin's has a very heavy synthesizer laden 1980s sound. It also has a reflection of its name with a very European pop sound despite the fact the band is Los Angeles based. The "Best of Berlin" covers the period from 1979-1988 in which Terri Nunn was the lead singer (Nunn would leave to pursue a solo career and return to the band a decade later). If you haven't heard the sound of Berlin, get ready for something very different than "Take My Breath Away", but also be warned Berlin does have suggestive lyrics and in the case of "Sex (I'm a)" - very explicit lyrics.
The explicit lyrics in "Sex (I'm a) are pretty graphic. The point of mentioning this isn't to pass judgement, but awareness. Many people today look back at 80s music and want to share the music they loved as a child. If you are thinking of sharing the music of Berlin, you may want to take the graphic nature of this song into consideration. In the song, Terri sings in very interesting duet with who I believe is bassist and Berlin founder John Crawford. This song got a lot of flak back in 1980 because up to that point, it was probably one the most graphic hit songs that had been released in the Rock era.
But there are other songs from Berlin that aren't controversial and are highly entertaining. There are two very "European" sounding songs in "No More Words" and "The Metro". "No More Words" is a song from 1984. It has some level of suggestive overtones, but isn't nearly in the category of the song "Sex". There is some catchy synthesizers in this song.

for the casual fan of berlin in the eighties or for someone who never really heard their full work, this is an awesome cd at a reasonable cost. sad to say, berlin hasn't been together for sometime & terri nunn's solo work with the album "moment of truth" didn't seem to do as well as we'd hoped. however, there are still fans of berlin & the band does tour from time to time. i've read that there are no original members aside from ms. nunn but there was a reunion tour not that long ago with members of the original line-up. hmm, interesting. well, i'm getting away from my review. although best of does feature some of the greatest songs in their career from 1979-1988, it is by no means all inclusive. i would've loved it so much more if 'pleasure victim' or 'tell me why' had been included here. however, i do love the remake or remix of 'all tomorrow's lies" which in my opinion is far better than the original in all respects. this version is more of soft ballad for fans who loved 'take my breath away'. after all, many of berlin's greatest & devoted fans came to know this music after seeing the film "top gun" in the eighties. although "take my breath away' is indeed a beautiful song, there are so many other great classics by this group which deserve as much attention. some of my favorite tracks include 'no more words', 'metro', & 'masquerade' to name just a few. if you loved the eighties or liked retro music, this is a must album for your collection. if you are glad the eighties are long gone, you still might enjoy the wonderful voice of terri nunn & the craftmanship known as the band berlin. i listen to this cd year in & year out. this is a great exaple or a blueprint perhaps of what could've been the biggest band in the eighties. tell me why they weren't bigger than they were?

This collection brings back high school memories and the early days of MTV when they actually played music videos...enough reminiscing before someone breaks out with the Geritol...
This is the collection that even friends younger than me and who were probably in diapers at the time of Berlin's huge success will appreciate these hits.Berlin/singer Terri Nunn were studio-synthesizer polished and maybe too perfected for the new wave movement, but so what. The vocals, the incredible catchy synth work and hooks would entice and make you want to hear some more... The music was fun and the vocals way surpassed any other female new wave fronted bands of the time (Missing Persons)...Like another California new wave based rock group Romeo Void, this was serious stuff ! Berlin/Nunn was like Blondie for the early to mid 80's with the exception that Terri Nunn sported a little edgier in your face attitude with cover model looks and sensuality thrown in the mix !... Favorite tracks are The Metro (very Euro/Kraftwerk sounding), Sex (some of the best pulsating synthesizer work for a pop-rock dance song),everything else is pretty much safe top 40 fair. A few tracks from their 1986 Count Three and Pray album began to show just how much Berlin was evolving and changing for something experimental and heavier with the guitar work (pre-alternative).Unfortunately, the band broke up after this and record sales were very dismal (with the exception of the track Take My Breath Away to garner them massive awards) !

A brief glimmer in 80's new wave came from Terri Nunn, she of the blonde hair with black tips, and the changing members of Berlin that eventually ended with Rob Brill and John Crawford. Key []=original studio album.
The new song "Blowin' Sky High," more in the hard-edged mode of their Count Three And Pray album, is a bitter song about two powers at war: "My weapon won't fail when the button's pressed-dynamite" and "I don't like you and you don't like me." Terri really belts it out towards the end along with Jimmy Z's harmonica. The song ends like it begins, with a quiet sober guitar.
"No More Words", on an insincere love that's on its way out, sports a funky bass synth backbeat while louder keyboards and electric guitars snarl. It can't be sincere if "you're telling me you love me while you're looking away." Nunn sings of "looking for a long romance/not a picture of passion or one time chance." [Love Life]
The guitar that roars throughout the powerful "Like Flames" signals the hard rock sound producer Bob Ezrin used when he produced KISS. There's a generally defeatist downbeat feel in the lyrics: "We can't defeat it/like flames reaching out from the sun" and "Heaven's died and gone to Hell." One of their best songs. [Count Three And Pray]
The immortal "Take My Breath Away" with that memorable throbbing bass keyboard, was their only #1 single and began life on the Top Gun soundtrack. Another favourite. [Count Three And Pray]
Then comes their most notorious song and the one that gave them a record deal--the dance floor synth exercise of "Sex (I'm A...)" resplendent in its new wave synth glory. How many things follows the words "I'm a", e.g. teaser, virgin, one night stand? More than enough, including some of the racier ones.
