I cannot stand Tokio Hotel’s new album. I liked it at first, but I honestly think I was in denial of the fact that the new stuff fails. I swear, I want every song from that album deleted from my iPod. The songs are repetitive and monotonous, and Bill’s voice sounds distorted. Tom, Georg, and Gustav are not even on the album cover, and you can barely hear their parts in some of the songs due to the extreme overload of techno crap. It truly makes my ears want to bleed.
I have waited months for this new album to come out. They said it was going to be different from their previous albums and have more a pop/techno feel to it. I worried a little, but I wasn’t completely turned off from the album.
When it finally came out, I was excited, and I listened to it constantly. Now I can’t listen to it without wanting to march over to Germany and smack Bill across the face. Seriously? The lyrics are just awful. I used to think that Bill Kaulitz was a lyrical genius and a fantastic singer. One of their songs, “Screamin'”, (in the video above) is really, really bad. The lyrics to a certain part go something along the lines of:
“I will scream till I’m bleedin’ and I will crash through the ceilin'”
Really now, Bill? You’re going to crash through the ceiling? And in another part he sings that it’s cold out and how he is such a sad, sad sight. They went from being my overly amazing role models to being pathetic emo shitheads. I used to really love them.
I guess I’ll have to listen to their old stuff again and again and again until a new album comes out.
I really hope you won’t disappoint me next time, Tokio Hotel.
