Review Summary: Hey, let's make an album in English so we can make even more money!

Tokio Hotel are the Jonas Brothers of Germany, to my understanding.
The only difference being members of Tokio Hotel are more open to adulthood and aren't masked behind a kid friendly corporate, like Disney. Oh, and the Jonas Brothers actually have a little talent.
Both bands are money making tools which target the teenage girl population.

Starting out very young in Germany, Tokio Hotel was very success ridden, and at the time, they may have had some talent.
Stricken with fame and money greed, the band became sellouts doing exactly what their label tells them, but of course they deny this in every interview to give the impression as young men doing what they want.
Yet, they don't even write their own songs. Not on this album at least.

Songs like Forgotten Children and Don't Jump were purposely written to send positive messages to show the band actually cares about things going on in the world. Though I personally think they're the worst songs on the whole album. Sending positive messages is great and all, but only when tastefully done. These songs are so blunt and straight to the point, they're actually painful to sit through.

Don't get me wrong, I like to listen to this album once in a blue moon.
Monsoon is possibly one of my favorite songs of all time, Kaulitz's strong voice makes my heart melt.
That's the goal, and it has been achieved. What can I say? I'm a teenage girl.
Another noteworthy song is Ready, Set, Go!, the other single of this album.
It is also a powerful song with catchy guitar riffs delivered by Tom Kaulitz.

Tokio Hotel is a band that should had died out a long time ago, but they just won't give up. Not with their army, yes, there is an actual Tokio Hotel Army, of teenage girls buying everything branded with the Tokio Hotel logo they can get their hands on.

Bill Kaulitz's androgynous beauty and womanly features, and don't forget his awesome hair, must distract the army from actually hearing how awful the music is. Sure, Bill is edgy and unique, but Tokio Hotel's music sure isn't. Tokio Hotel is actually a mixture of every American emo band that has failed to make it big time, packed into four rockish German boys with sexy accents and poor English. But because they're German, that makes them original in the English world of music. At least that's what the fanbase tells me.

If you haven't listened to this album yet, do yourself the favor of listening to the German album Zimmer 483. You'll still experience the whiny emo singing and the amateur music, but at least you won't understand a word of the poorly translated lyrics that the English album offers. Unless you speak German of course. But be sure to check out Monsoon and Ready, Set, Go!, because if anything they're worth hearing.

To be fair, I barely buy that the Jonas Brothers write their own songs, either.

I'm pretty sure they do write their own songs. The german version of Ready, Set, Go! (Ubers Ende Der Welt) as well as Rette Mich are both pretty quality songs...but besides that, this band is awful, and 10000x more embarrassing once translated into English in what is obviously just a grab for more money from America. If Rammstein could succeed without translating their shit, Tokio Hotel shouldn't try.

only leading to a downward spiral of androgynous sex and crying oneself to sleep.

So you like Tokio Hotel...except not really.

And -1.000.000.000.000.000 points in my consideration for finding that poodle "sexy" and his hair "awesome".

I'm not going to lie, I'm mega attracted to Bill Kaulitz.
Mmmm he's my type of man.
He looks like a girl but he has his man parts.
That makes it sound like I'm attracted to trannies.
Eh. I'm not.
