I'd HIGHLY recommend buying the other Rammstein cds. This one goes into different music genres at times.. but cds like Sehnsucht and Herzeleid are very raw and heavy throughout. I'd recommend Mutter as well, as it has several singles on it (5)and is quite amazing to listen to over and over again. Rest assured that you will not get tired of these cds. Also try the Live Aus Berlin cd... it will get you head banging guaranteed.
If Reise Reise is your introduction to this band, you will be astounded at how great their previous works are as well. This band always delivers and gives you your money's worth. It is impossible for me to distinguish a favourite album of theirs.. but I assure you that all of them are in my top 10 favourite metal cds of all time. There's something for everyone.
Each of Rammstein's albums deals with morbid or objectionable themes on a few tracks. As they stated in an interview, the hardness of their sound demands it. It's true. It is uncomfortable being seduced into tapping one's toes, singing along or dancing to songs about the auto-erotic pleasures of a hermaphrodite, cannibalism, torture, rape and incest. Notwithstanding, Rammstein has enriched the rock canon with remarkable music of lasting merit through their brilliant and catchy lyrics and unique sound.
But this one is better. Less variety, perhaps. But Du hast wears thin, even the clever pun on "Du hasst". This one is consistently good. Hard hitting rock with rhythms, power chords, wailing guitars and bass. The occasional orchestral piece, the occasional female chorus. Mostly just rock. If you know any German at all, the diction is superb, and the words meant to be understood. I won't summarize all the songs, just my highlights.
Reise Reise starts it off with a rough meditation on death and blood, as the waves cry quietly, and spears make the blood flow on the shore.
Mein Teil lends explicit meaning to "You are what you eat".
Moskau is a love song to the city, an old, flabby woman who is still irresistible naked with her breasts rebuilt.
Stein um Stein walls in his lover and stifles her screams.
Amour is a raving beast.
For any fan of hard rock, of metal, or of industrial music will get off on this one. A very good CD from an amazing band.
REISE REISE is operatic power mixed with heavy metal. Rammstein shy away from the electronic aspects of past ventures and instead focus on crafting incredibly talented and addictive songs. 'Dalai Lama' is a slow, heavy rocker with typical chugging Rammstein power chords that soon split off to incorporate atmospheric piano and clean vocals. The song literally rises from start to finish, and becomes a highlight of the album. 'Keine Lust' follows the same pattern, climaxing with a bridge that you just can't help but sing along to. 'Los' slows things down a bit, with no-frills acoustic guitar work partnering with electric guitar power chords, which serves as an intermission to the album's most powerful track: 'Amerika.'
The song easily dethrones 'Du Hast' as Rammstein's signature song, poking fun at America's overblown pretentiousness with tongue crammed into cheek. Multi-layered vocals sound like a chorus of people that rise up to chant in unison, and it truly becomes awe-inspiring to hear.Read more ›
