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.
-Ready, Set, Go
-Break Away, and of course,
Then, if you like what you hear, pick up their German albums, you won't be disappointed.

I love this cd! the first song is Scream, and it's a great way to start off the cd. After that, it's Ready Set Go, which is one of the two videos i've seen of theirs.
Monsoon, is actually a re recording of an older song of theirs, which is also included on this cd(in german). Mosoon was the first song i ever heard by them, and it's a great introduction!
There are plenty of songs to love on this. Live every second, is pretty straight forward! live! Sacred and Rescue me are both beautiful songs, and i'm in awe that a young guy like Bill had a hand in writing them.
Don't Jump: listen to it, that's all i have to say, it's so sad but a very good song you'll want to listen to over and over again.
It helps that the guys play their own instruments. And are good looking to boot, but Bll's voice is great, and the music is well worth a listen!
Songs that made me cry (in a good way): Rescue Me, Monsoon, 1000 Oceans, Sacred, By your side.
Songs that made me Scream: Scream, Ready Set Go!, Love is dead, Live every Second, Break away, Final Day.
Every song is perfect.
In short BUY THIS ALBUM you will not be disappointed!!!
