I fell in love with a few songs on this CD so I bought it.
Bell
The previous albums still sound great after hearing this album; it's just that they are a bit simpler.

I'm extremely impressed with this album and I'm very proud of how much the band has grown.

EXCELLENT album! The band manages to mix a number of different styles and yet it still flows so well from song to song! There are songs you can head bang to, songs that make you want to cry, songs that you can just jump around and dance to. It's a little of everything. This entire album is so well written, produced, and performed. The sound is so dynamic on Humanoid because the band has really added so many more elements to their music and made it much more complex. Bill's voice is stronger and he has more vocal control. He also uses a much wider vocal range than previously and his English has greatly improved so his pronunciation is much better. The musicians in the band make greater use of their own abilities, whipping out electronic drum sets, pianos, and keyboards to add to their usual drums/bass/guitar setup. Add in some synthesizers to all of that and you've got some VERY powerful, very rich sounding songs.

The songs, for all of the added electronic elements (of which I'm a huge fan), still sound like Tokio Hotel and you can rock out to great guitar riffs, pounding drums, and a great bass beat. Tokio Hotel's sound has matured to the point where I really feel this is an album designed for young adults like me to enjoy instead of one intended for a teen crowd that just happens to be enjoyable for an adult. Their new sound is more accessible to the average listener without losing the elements that make Tokio Hotel unique. Everyone of all ages can enjoy this very easily because it's so easy to jam along to the songs!

I'm extremely impressed with this album and I'm very proud of how much the band has grown.

Without a doubt, this is one of the best CD's I have EVER heard. I'm 40 so I've heard quite a few! The vocals,instrument playing and production are top notch. I've been listening to it nonstop since I downloaded it yesterday and everytime I discover something new that I missed before. I have always loved Tokio Hotel's music but the Humanoid CD is definitely new and improved! You will not regret getting this CD for your collection.

This is a magnificent new album. It has all the melodic creativity, personal feelings, social commentary and perfectly tight instrumentals from the previous albums. Added are more adventuresome harmonies and rhythms, more complex vocals, keyboards and a number of supporting electronic sound effects. For Tokio Hotel fans, it will reinforce their love, and it should also gain a broader audience. The previous albums still sound great after hearing this album; it's just that they are a bit simpler. Be sure to get the deluxe edition! Also, be assured that the mechanized images used to promote the album (the cover picture, etc.) do not fully convey the human feelings of the music.

FINALLY. If you are a devoted fan like me, you've been waiting and waiting for this album to be released. Tokio Hotel's second English album HUMANOID, has hit the world.
I'm not very good at writing reviews so sorry if this sounds a bit jumbled. This 4 member group from Germany made big success and attention when they released Scream, which was a mix of translated songs from their past albums. This time, the band made a German(their mother tongue) album and then made an English version and released them at the same time. The lead singer Bill Kaulitz has said and quote, "I'm sure no artist has to remember as many lyrics as I do."
This album overall, is very different from any of their past ones. Tokio Hotel has matured in their sound and has experimented with new tools like synthesizers that you can hear throughout the CD. The tracks keep the same level of emotion in lyrics, but the sound is more versatile and danceable. I found it new but very enjoyable. I suppose now I'll try a track listing.

Track 1: Noise- The first song does it's purpose as a warm-up to the album. I love the instrumental build at the start. It does get a bit repetitive but it's catchy. 3/5

Track 2: Darkside of the Sun-I had to get a good feel of this one, but by a couple listens, now I really like it. The soft and almost eerie violins at the start and end are a nice touch. The futuristic feel of the song and lyrics give you sort of a rush. 5/5

Track 3: Automatic-The first single. Since I heard it before any of the rest of the album, I feel that the mood of it is much lighter than the rest of the album, but that's refreshing and it's very, VERY catchy. 5/5

Track 4: World Behind My Wall-The first slow song you'll encounter.

I couldn't wait for this release, although my anticipation for the new AFI cd was higher, this cd was more worth the wait.

Tokio Hotel has recaptured the more melodic high points from their first cd (think more "Monsoon" and less "Scream") and that is fine with me. Overall I think this is a deeper, better album for them. With the exception of tracks 8-11, that I beleive get too bogged down in the robot "theme" which made some of the lyrics juvenile, and the music rushed.....this is otherwise a great score for them.

Be sure to get the "deluxe" version, because I believe that "Phantomrider" is the best song in this collection, and it is only on the bonus disc.

a DVD?
I don't know. I've seen both that the second is the four bonus songs AND that it's a DvD.
I really don't know but on Tokio Hotel's Official Website it says nothing bout a DvD [at least not anymore]

All imports were removed. CherryTree Records is going to let us know how to get the German version in the US so that it will count towards the sales charts.

Is this the Deluxe Version? liek w 2 CDs?
It's a good price cos on the Amazon.de there is a Limited Deluxe English Edition that comes with a Flag and a hard cover box, whatever that means and they want like 60$ in USD for it. I'm wondering where the DVD is? It is listed on the Tokio Hotel Network as having a dvd too!
