  • Summary: The German quartet's debut album in English features songs from their German Language albums, "Schrei" and "Zimmer 483."
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 4
  2. Negative: 1 out of 4
  1. Emo kids will flock to German class when they hear the original version of 'Monsoon,' the band's biggest hit, which closes this strangely fascinating Euro-glam effort.
  2. The taut power-trio arrangements mix the whisper-to-a-scream dynamics of post-grunge with glam-rock chords and a big dollop of emo's teen psychodrama.
  3. Despite the occasional misstep, Scream shows that the bandmembers are ready and able to embrace their growing abilities.
  4. Almost too stiff to be funny, this might have been a surreal payday in the boardrooms of Berlin, but one presumes the buck stops here. [May 2008, p.142]

    I think most of the hate reviews are being a little too harsh, especially the AP review. Its their first English album, where for the first time they are singing in English. Give them a break, and the music is great with great band members. Expand

    Although not as smooth as their German language albums (for obvious reasons) this albums is still fantastic, showing a wide range of talent from all members. Besides, any flaws can be attributed to the fact that Bill Kaulitz is singing in his third language (French being his second), and that these kids were 18 when this album was made. And people who write hate reviews need to get a life. Theirs no point flaming a band just for kicks. Give some productive comments, or just stay away. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm a big fan of this band for 6 years now and I totally love 'scream'. Even though I prefer them in their native German it's still very good and it has some great songs. Expand

    the music's alright, but the vocalist just don't follow the's as if he's trying too hard to sound 'rock enough'.and it's more fun to hear him sings in german,it's more sincere. Expand

    This garbage is categorized as 'Punk'? And I thought I was mad when I saw My Chemical Romance labeled as 'punk'... This is proof that all it takes is some derivative, make up wearing kids (keyword: kids) who sell out to a scene to make in the music industry. Expand
