Therapie - die besten zehn Sitzungen is Unherz's 2012 best-of album. It contains a decent collection of songs, ranging from fast beats to slower ballads.
The first track on the album is Therapie, a simple song, yet one that is undeniably catchy, and it also sets the tone for the majority of the album. Sünder vor dem Herrn is the next song on the album. Despite the fact that it is a good song, it is too similar, too soon - it has the same vibes as Therapie, although this does also make it another catchy track.
The next song that Unherz picked for the album is Inferno. This is quite an improvement on the previous two songs: the rhythms have more alteration and progression and it makes for a much more interesting listen; if this song falls short anywhere, it is probably on the vocals, which are arguably the worst on the entire album, especially during the verses.
Die Zeit heilt alle Wunden briefly changes the mood and sound of the album; it is brooding, memorable and slow. To say the least, this certainly deserves to be on a best-of. With Herzschlag, Unherz quickly re-establish their signature sound of hard-hitting drums and guitars, although the song fails to flow particularly well from the previous one.
Although most of the songs on this album are catchy in their own way, something about Und Dunkelheit wird Licht makes it one of the least forgettable. It is certainly more upbeat than the other songs, with an oddly positive aspect. Prall und kugelrund is the humorous and light-hearted song on the album, as the name probably suggests. A little bit naughty, a little bit ribald, but still good enough to bang your head and tap your feet to.
The next song, 20.000 Freunde, seems almost like an anthem; although unmistakably Unherz, it is still one of those songs that shows that their music can have a bit of variation to it. Die Hölle muss schön sein was certainly a nice surprise to hear on the album. It is awe-inspiring and noteworthy, and a pleasure to listen to, but it does fail to be memorable outside of the album.
Unherz finish the album off with Rette mich, and in all honesty, they chose the last song wisely. Everything about the song - from the tempo to the tonality - makes for a perfect climax.
Overall, Therapie goes to show two things: firstly, that Unherz is not a band that will be changing the face of metal or rock anytime soon; and secondly, that, in spite of this, the band still produces music that is catchy, enjoyable and timeless.
