Based on their early albums, anything Tokio Hotel didn’t know about making crunchy Alternative Rock would fit comfortably in a pinky thimble with room for Donald Trump’s liberal views on Mexican immigrants. Tokio Hotel’s first three releases crackle with the kind of careening Guitar Rock that has become the stock in trade of young American bands from large urban areas, hardscrabble cities and the country’s heartland. And that’s interesting, because Tokio Hotel is as German as Volkswagen and Beck’s beer (the one actually made in Germany and not St. Louis). Read more about Tokio Hotel in this week's Sound Advice.
