"Scream" was Tokio Hotel's first American album, being translated from their "Schrei" album. Tokio Hotel is my favorite band, above everything that I listen to, but this album is rather dated. It has great songs, some of which are very dear to me, and I love the sound Bill's voice had when he was younger, but their second album, Humanoid, has won me over. Alternative rock is, to be honest, a lot softer than what I usually listen gravitate to (I was an Evanescence fan long before I was a Tokio Hotel fan), so it's really saying something that I prefer them over anyone else.
The only thing that could be considered offencive is in the song "Final Day," when the word "Hell" is uttered ("the whole word can just go to Hell for all I care tonight").
Compared to mainstream music these days, Tokio Hotel is a huge blessing. They actually care about making their music perfect for their fans. Bill is a very edgy, eye-catching person, who's (for want of a better word, as I have a similar look myself) bizarre look lures you to listen to the music and once your sucked into the boys' talent, there's no hope for escape. And to be honest, once you get to know all of the members, you won't really want to escape. ♥
Over all, Scream wonderful album, with lots of good messages and teen angst (Lolz). Tokio Hotel is currently in the studio, working on a third album, and if you're like me, you're on the edge of your seat, ecstatic and curious as to what they'll be throwing out there next. :-)
