Sylkmonster Reviews Kings of Suburbia - Tokio Hotel

705 views

Ok so this album was suggested to me by my good sis @Queen Of Suburbia lana1 

So here is my track-by-track full fledged review of Kings of Suburbia by Tokio Hotel  tehe1 

(NOTE: I will rate each track in wendy emotes - 5 is the max and 1 is the lowest tehe1 The best track on the album will receive the coveted janet emote jj1

 

  1. Feel It All  -- Tbh wasn't a huge fan of the track when the chorus came on, but by the time the track ended I was converted. rav1 The bridge was the best part of the track. Although I found the lyrics to be slightly dry cause they were just repeated over and over throughout the track, I really enjoyed this alot and took a second listen. I give this track three wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1
  2. Stormy Weather -- I loooovedddd this track. The melody loop. alex1 THE LYRICS ARE EVERYTHING. alex1 found the vocals to be autotuned here and there but overall it works for me. This is a serious contender for the Janet emote. A bop for the gods. I give this song 4 wendys. wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1
  3. Run, Run, Run -- I really loved this track. cry0  The vocals are giving me life. And the lyrics were flawless. When he hit that falsetto every time..I had an eargasm cry1 I give this track 3 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1
  4. Love Who Loves You Back -- WHAT A BOPPPPP I HEARD IT NOT ONCE BUT 3 TIMESSSSS. THIS IS THE PERFECT TRACK. Flawless instrumentation. Flawless lyrics. "Throw you arrows, hit her heart, if they don't react, Love who Loves You Back"alex1alex1 Flawless production(which the previous tracks somewhat lacked tbh rav1) This song is another serious contender for the Janet emote. I give this song full 5 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  5. Covered in Gold -- Another flawless track. The album is exceeding my expectation by each track. I was a little turned off by the auto tune in the previous tracks, but to be honest it sort of works in this one and I didn't mind it at all, infact I LOVED it.  rav2rav2 The hook is absolutely orgasmic. This track is to look out for. I give this track once again full 5 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  6. Girl Got a Gun -- WHAT THE FU*KKKKKKK. I literally thought after Track 4 the album would go downhill. But I LOVE this track. Not a huge fan of the lyrics. BUT THE CHORUS IS EVERYTHINGGGGG yas2 ESPECIALLY THE BASSLINE AT THE START AND THROUGHOUT THE TRACK alex1alex1 AND WHAT A MASTERPEICE OF A INSTRUMENTAL BEFORE THE BRIDGE alex1alex1 I literally had to debate with myself weather to give this a full 5 wendys cause I replayed the track twice, but I decided to give it 4 wendys instead. wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  7. Kings of Suburbia -- Killer song. I loved the harmonies. And the thumping sound. The lyrics are flawless too yas2. In all honesty they should've opened with this instead of Feel it All. The talking-bridge part is classic 90s. Was gonna give this track 4 wendys but the ending slayed me so I give this song 5 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  8. We Found Us -- This album is giving me so much melancholy feelings. I love the instrumentation on this track, very dark. Wasn't a huge fan of the lyrics though, would dial back the vocals a bit to compliment the very smoky melody of the track. But overall a very strong track. I wouldn't skip it if it ever comes on my shuffle. I give this track 3 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  9.  Invaded --  NOW THESE ARE THE VOCALS I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR. Another haunting track. I loved the lyrics. The production wasn't much except for the piano, until the bridge kicked in ofcourse, but that climax was short-lived. Not a bad track. I also give this song 3 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  10. Never Let You Down -- (NOTE: I was starting to think maybe I'm getting bored at this point so I took a little break here and resumed after my review after a while) I really loved how the chorus just kicked in when the track started. The chorus and the bridge are the highlights of the track. The verses are okay. brit11 I didn't mind the auto tune to be honest, now that I've acquired a taste of their sound, I'm sort of okay with it. rav1 I give this bop 4 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  11. Louder than Love -- THIS TRACK IS GOING STRAIGHT TO MY PERSONAL PLAYLIST. I really loved this track so much, I played it for almost an hourr. yas2  THE CHORUS. THE HOOK. THE PRODUCTION. THE VOCALS. FLAWLESSSSSS. THE GUITAR RIFFS THROUGH OUT THE SONG IS EVERYTHING. And that loop in the background during the hook and chorus. I GIVE THIS BEAUTIFUL TRACK 5 WENDYS wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  12. Masquerade -- WHY ARE ALL THE BEST TRACK AT THE BACK OF THE ALBUM? alex1alex1 THE HARMONIES ON THE VOCALS ARE EVERYTHINGGG. Heard this one more than once. What the first half of the album lacked(except for a few tracks) were more vocals. But this tracks make up for it tbh. This would be the perfect track to close out a show on. I give it 4 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  13. Dancing in the Dark -- I have to be really honest here. I did not feel this track at all. The production is nice. The vocals were good. I heard it twice but it didn't make me as excited as the previous two tracks. Its a good track nonetheless. I wouldn't remove it from my playlist or skip it. I give this track unfortunately 2 wendys wendy1wendy1 
  14. The Heart Get No Sleep -- WHAT THE FU*KK. I totally thought this was gonna be a filler track and wouldn't be as good as the previous 5 wendy ones. But I LOVVEDDDD this track. WHAT KIND OF SUMMER VIBES in winter. THE PRODUCTION on this one is the highlight of the album. What is this flawless track doing at the back of the album? I give this one the same amount of wendys as the same amount of times I replayed the song. 5 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 
  15. Great Day -- the perfect track to end the album. The bassline melody of the track is flawwwwless. The lyrics and the vocals are flawless too. Hit that falsetto note in the chorus kingggggg alex1 I really loved this track. I give it 3 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1 

   

 

I really enjoyed this album and would definitely listen to it again. cry0 Skipping a track or two ofcourse wendy1

Its a very cohesive album. The concept flows through from one track to an another. Not one song is out of place. FLAWLESS ALBUM. I give the entire album 5 out of 5 wendys wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1wendy1 

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET THIS ALBUM CAUSE IT IS GONNA MAKE YOU WET AND ORGASM BY EACH TRACK alex1.

Now to award the much highly respected Janet emote. I had to do alot of thinking, I had 5 top contenders for this honour, after listening to the tracks over and over again I finally narrowed it down to 2. It was such a hard decision but at the end I decided on one track. 

Now our very good sis Taylor, will do the honours of announcing the winner...

The runner-up was Love Who Loves You Back, both of the tracks were my top 2, but there can only be on Janet emote holder so I finally decided on Louder Than Love.

 

Well, thats my review of this album. Lets wrap this up now. rav1 

Thanks again to @Queen Of Suburbia for turning me into an Alien cry1cry1

Will do a second review of their other album soon demi1

@Blue Riding Hood I'm thinking about reviewing Charm of Glitter, I'm gonna give each song just 1 wendy emote wendy1 

 

@Queen Of Suburbia rip2rip2 

Its fine, I really loved this album btw rav2 

I finally read the whole thing now brit13 I agree with you on so many things :D And if you like the electronics on this album, I would suggest listening to Humanoid next. But either way I'm excited brit11 and I'm so glad I finally have someone else on this forum to fangirl over Tokio Hotel cry1 And I'm not saying this because I'm a stan, but KOS really does get highly underrated, and I think that you'd agree with me. ny1
