Scream is the debut English album by German band Tokio Hotel. It contains English versions of songs from two of their previous albums: Schrei and Zimmer 483. Eight of the twelve songs are from Zimmer 483 while the remaining four are from Schrei. The name Scream is the English translation of the name of their first album Schrei. In German-speaking countries, the album was released as Room 483, which is the English translation of their second album's name ("Zimmer 483").
