Guano Apes – German toughness in English

2 out of 5 stars
It's like Rammstein, but less feminine. Her music isn't touching. It shouts too loud to touch. It awakes the crazyness inside you; it pulls you down to Earth with the hoarse voice and shuffles the feelings. It's overly pop-rock, adopting features of R&B, imitating the femininity of Alanis Morrisette, trying to sound heavy and harsh and ending up with a scream too weak to impress.
However, there is an ugly beauty in her voice. A perculiar uniqueness in the tune. An unsuspected hypocracy in performance. It's an attempt I respect, but do not appreciate.

  1. Guano Apes have come a long way since this album. Their music has evolved into a far more mature sound and the lyrical side of it has vastly improved.
    So, don't write them off until you have heard their other two albums, they are a lot lot better than this.
