Here is a band that got ruined by one overplayed hit ("Take My Breath Away") that wasn't even reflective of what they did. Their live shows are great—Terri Nunn can really sing. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Comments about live performance:
I saw Berlin on the Count Three & Pray tour and it was one of the most moving performances I've seen. It was early on in the tour, and Terri Nunn was crying at the end, hugging everyone she could, completely overwhelmed by the audience response. Her voice sounded better than it ever had.

Recommended first album:
Count Three & Pray
Terri Nunn (executive producer); Chris Olivas, Mitchell Sigman, Peter Rafelson
I bought the new Berlin album a few weeks back and think it's really great—as solid a Berlin album as any—very much in the line of Count Three & Pray. Very solid album, and Terri Nunn is sharing vocals with this line-up, but they sound great. I'm surprised there hasn't been any buzz on it here.
