The first track is a radio edit of Mutter. It loses a little instrumental and the rest of the piece is for the most part unscathed. The vocoder mix and second track is my favorite. Giving the impression of a spectrum of voices, I envisioned a children's choir in an arched narrow hall, swaying to their harmonies with glowing faces. 5\4, the third track, takes me back to the excitment of first concert I saw as the band members staggered around stage in bright white diapers to find their instruments to play.
The 4th track, the Mutter incubator mix with its gurgles, and boiling bubbles sound effects, takes me on a journey in a microscopic submarine as I bump off tissue and cell walls, bobbing along a briney sea.
This is electronic, industrial dark core as only Rammstein knows how that satisfies their whole audience, from kind who are amazed by their show and storytelling through adults who are amazed by the intricacies of their performance . Rammenfans, don't do without this single, yet another complement and compliment to the full length 'Mutter' CD, the fourth in the series, and a worthwhile purchase.
