CD Reviews

Not as "berlin" sounding as "Voyeur" so a bit disappointing
Daniel W. Kelly | Long Island, NY United States | 12/16/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This lineup of Berlin did an amazing job of capturing the essence of classic berlin with the Voyeur album, from it's synth dance tracks to its moodier mellow tracks to harder punk sounding songs. This disc has none of that versatility. It's all very raw sounding covers much in the guitar heavy style of live shows. Some of these cover version could have been given incredible, fresh, synth dance updates, such as "Fashion," "Erotic City" and "Big Time." Plus, "Never Let Me Down Again" is live AND the vocals are sung by one of the male members of the band. And "No More Words" is the live acoustic version with the original band from VH1 Band's Reunited.

This sounds more like a rough demo than the polished quality of Voyeur. The best songs on here are actually the two original tracks by Berlin. "Scream" is totally hot and could have fit in snuggly on the "Voyeur" album as could "Down and Dirty", which is reminscent of "pleasure victim" from the original Berlin EP from way back when."

"after the masterpiece that was "voyuer", i am very dissapointed in this. i have loved every single album from berlin. what sets berlin apart from other bands is, of course, terri nunn and her gorgeous vocals. she is, hands down, the best female singer since debbie harry. all i can say is that berlin is a band that doesnt need to be covering any one else's songs. they create beautiful songs of their own. i just hope we dont have to wait years for a new studio album. they were on the right track with voyeuer, their last album. this collection of songs is mediocore at best. hearing them sung in concert at a berlin show is one thing,and quite enjoyable, but on record they do nothing for berlin. sorry guys."

"Sex is easy. Sex as art is a little harder. Art that evokes sexual energy is harder still. Berlin is the master of the art. I am aware of no other rock band that leaves the listener so sexually charged. 4Play proves that Terri Nunn and Berlin have not lost their edge. This is a good example of their work. The live performance of "No More Words" compares favorably with the studio version on LOVE LIFE. Still, if I had to choose only one Berlin album, it would be their seminal PLEASURE VICTIM."
