I first heard the Guano Apes via some pirated MP3's from my friends in Russia. I liked the music so much I actually tracked down an import CD at Amazon even when the folks at my local CD store said there was no such group and no such CD.
This is *not* musical valium. It's very high energy, innovative rock with a metal edge. Unlike most CDs, with one cool track and the rest filler, this has at least four intense, memorable keeper tracks:
Must hear: "Open Your Eyes"... their big hit in Europe and worth every second. "Crossing the Deadline" ... innovative, intense, rockin'. "Lord of the Boards" ... head bangin'. "Maria" ... wallow in walls of sound.
The Apes are touring small clubs in the US this winter. See their website for tour info.

I don't even remember how I heard about this band at first...probably just from randomly seeing them on a shelf at a cd store. I came on here and took a listen to the 30 second samples, and I knew I had to buy it. This band puts out so much energy in their heavier tracks, and then pours out their emotion on the softer tracks, putting together one of the better albums I've heard in a while. The song "Open Your Eyes" is a great way to kick off the album, blasting their metal edge away right from the start. Then a couple songs into the cd, they mellow out and create my personal favorite song and their most emotional tune on the album, "Rain". Then with the very next tune, their back laying their s**t down with "Lords of the Boards". My favorite tracks include their beautiful "Rain", their Primus-like "We Use the Pain", "Open Your Eyes", and their laid-back "Get Busy". This band definitely knows how to write great tunes of varying styles. Definitely worth a shot, so check it out.

Imagine combining Jewel and Limp Bizkit or Tori Amos and Korn. It may sound outlandish, but you'd be surprised. Something along these lines is what you'll find on Proud Like A God. This debut from the Germany based Guano Apes was released in America on Tuesday. It was unveiled overseas in 1997 by Supersonic and Gun, and has gone platinum in Germany, as well as gold in four other countries. The album, which was produced by Wolfgang Stach, is guaranteed to find its way to the top of the charts in the States as well. The Apes are Dennis Poschwatta (drums), Stefan Ude (bass), and Henning Ruemenapp (guitar). However, the most striking element of this group is vocalist Sandra Nasic, who also writes all of the lyrics. Nasic displays an incredible vocal range, similar to that of singer Jewel. While she is loud and intense on some songs (in a style influenced by groups like Limp Bizkit), several slow, soft ballads are also featured on the album. The range of the band, when comparing songs, is also amazing. It is impossible to pigeon-hole this group into one musical genre. Proud Like A God combines elements of hard-core, punk, and a hint of hip-hop. But then, that is exactly what makes this CD such a pleasure to listen to - no song is like the one before it. The album opens with "Open Your Eyes", a song with a pulsating beat that is sure to become a club favorite. "Rain" is the first impressive ballad on the disc. After listening to previous songs, this is a quiet break from chaos. "Lords of the Boards," the official song of the 1998 European Snowboard Championships, is reminiscent of many well-known hard rock groups.

I'm Italian, and I saw their concert in Milan on 9 - 10 - 1999, because I was curios about this strange band. I wanted to know their music better, because I only knew their hit "open your eyes", and decide later to buy this record or not. I was so enthusiastic about their music that I bought their album and the cd-single too. I can't describe their music, but I try to do it. It's a mix of punk-rock, techno, hip-hop but with 140 bps. And I love it. Sandra has an incredible voice, and is also the writer of the words of the songs. The best song of the album are: Open your eyes, Lords of the boards (very punk), Wash it down (quite techno for the drums) and Maria ( a very beautyful slow song). All this in two words? OK! BUY IT!

It was about 3:00 AM, me and my friend were down on my pull out bed couch. I'm not sure what he was doing, probably sleeping, and i was rummaging through his large binder of cd's. i came across "Guano Apes", whom he had earlier told me about. I was beginning to get frusterated because i hadn't come upon one cd that i'd liked yet, but then the guano apes album changed it all.
After the first song, "Open Your Eyes", i was immediately sucked in. Yes, it was weird hearing a woman rap (or what appeared to atleast sound like a rap), and at first, well, i'd thought she was a man by how she sounded. However, the rap like song was somewhat catchy, and the more altern. rock styled chorus was even more catchy. Into the second track, at first, i thought that it sounded alot like an Enya song, but then surprised me as Sandra (lead singer) launced into screaming accompanied by heavy guitars.
Well, to make a long story short, this album put me on an emotional roller coaster, but one that i enjoyed. You'd think with all of the different styles of music that are explored on this album you might not like most of it, but the guano apes have a way of making it all sound the same yet different.
The only reason i give this album four stars is because over time and much listening the songs get old somewhat quickly. However, still a great album and worthy of the cost!!!
