Westbam do a remix of this song (Track 3); they do not quite do Rammstein honour. As was the case with Rammstein's previous single LINKS 2 3 4, in which the band Westbam remixed two versions of the song, they did a far from ideal job in the case of one particular version. The electrical enhancements of singer Till Lindemann's voice were pathetic and the remix was 'stretched,' in that it was longer than required. On this single, Westbam do the same mistake: the same electrical enhancements of Lindemann's voice are there, and the song is again too long. A perfect case of 'Westbam deja vu.' Paul van Dyk's remix is a much better rendition of "Ich Will" (Track 4), as Lindemann's vocals are left alone, and there is an interesting experimentation with the choral melody of the song. Paul van Dyk does create a catchy tune, but his remix does not, unfortunately, parallel Clawfinger's talent in remixing Rammstein's songs, which they did for the previous two singles.
An added bonus to this single is a live CD-ROM track which can be viewed on one's PC. It is the same live version of "Ich Will" to be found on this single, only with the added visual effects. This single, with the outlined faults notwithstanding, is excellent and another welcome addition to any Rammstein collection. Rumour has it that one more single from MUTTER will be released before Rammstein 'move on'; Rammstein fans of all countries, keep your fingers crossed!
