iTunes Editors’ Notes

“Take My Breath Away” turned out to be a song too big for Berlin. The huge hit broke the band commercially beyond its wildest dreams and then broke it up. Singer Terri Nunn then spent years searching for the right outlet, but in the end she reformed Berlin with musicians who wanted to be there. Throughout the '10s, music from the '80s has made a comeback among hipsters and mainstream music fans alike. But it’s taken eight years for Berlin to arrive at 2013’s Animal, which features the gorgeous ‘80s-styled synth ballad “It’s the Way” and electronically modern dance rockers like the title track and “With the Lights On,” where Nunn smoothly and sultrily leads the band through material that sounds as if Berlin had been actively playing arenas all along. The Jefferson Airplane cover “Somebody to Love” takes the ‘60s classic into the next century; yet it’s a mere footnote compared to the fresh excitement behind “Don’t Make Me Regret It” and “Blame It on the World.”

Customer Reviews

Must Listen

"With the Lights On" is a must listen / must have. It'll put you in a good mood.

Must have!

This record has been something I've witnessed personally from it's infancy and typically I do not listen to Berlin at home or in the car, being that I hear it constantly live and in my husbands studio. I've been around these guys for 4 years now and have heard everything live more times than I can count. That being said, Animal has turned me from drummer's wife into a legit dancing screaming fan lol! Terri's voice gets better with time and she needs no studio magic! Terri, along with Carlton, Dave and Chris are ELECTRIC on stage. The whole vibe just works, especially if you love to dance!! I highly recommend adding this to your library. Favorite songs: Secrets, Blame it on the world, Don't make me regret it.

It's Double Double Animal Style

I've heard a couple of these songs live over the past couple years at Berlin concerts - they sound as great as studio versions as they did live. This album reminds me of my teen years in 1986 when I bought my first (of many copies) Count Three and Pray album. I had to listen to it to fall in love with it. There are a few songs here I'm not sure about; but I'm giving them time. I think "It's the Way" will be just like "Take my Breath Away" for me -- a non-starter that I will always hate. And hopefully it's a song that attracts new listeners, like TMBAW did.
