The Feuer Frei single has the original version of Feuer Frei plus three mixes, two of which are by Rammstein themselves. They picked two songs from the tribute album Du Hast and Buck Dich, cover version by Battery (Battery: A Tribute to Rammstein), and made a CD single that excites and rocks. This is the 5th CD single from the Mutter full length CD, another outstanding recording from Rammstein, besides the title song being featured in a full length film, Triple X.

The official release date was October 14, 2002. The sound and composition of this single is unlike that I have seen of any of their previous single releases, since each remix is almost completely different from the other. Take LINKS 2 3 4, ICH WILL, or even MUTTER, where some of the remixes were amazing, though some of the others were unoriginal or downright lame (Westbam Remixes of "Links 2 3 4" and "Ich Will," or Vocoder Remix of "Mutter").
"Feuer Frei" in itself is a riveting and highly energizing song (ask anyone who had the fortune of seeing Rammstein perform it live).Read more ›
There's three decent tracks on here (the obvious). If you're new to Rammstein, this will give you a great hit, two decent mixes, and two ... tracks from a few years ago. Even for an avid collector like me, well... the scarcity of NEW material (like with many R+ singles) is not worth the list price plus S&H.
Let me re-phrase that all:
If you're a R+ newbie: This will be a good starter.
If you're a fan: DON'T GET IT, you can live without 2 remixes.
