Product Description

Amazon.ca

There's not a big precedent for German bands succeeding in the United States, the '80s bombast-rock of the Scorpions notwithstanding. Rammstein, however, may be the macho men to get the job done, at least in a concert setting. Decidedly Teutonic and militant in sound and lyrics--they sing in German and their commanding semi-industrial metal is compelling--Rammstein garnered rock-radio airplay for the catchy sing-along "Du Hast," which translates here as "You Hate" and bears a striking musical resemblance to the Golden Earring tune "Twilight Zone." While Sehnsucht's 11 songs are solid, it's the live shows where everything gels. There, KISS pyrotechnics and disturbing NIN-like images, for example, complement Rammstein's forceful music. Without the visual stimuli, Sehnsucht (which means "longing") is still a strong effort, but live is where the album's Germanic gems really shine. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock That Never Wears Out Sept. 20 2012
By Peter Gueckel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I waited a long time to get this album. It has lost nothing in more than ten years since its original release. This is an album, no less than Herzeleid (Ger), Mutter and Reise Reise, to play over and over again. This is real rock, pounding and raw, but captivating and original, in no way generic. The lyrics, albeit sometimes shocking and offensive, go with the music. There is not one song that is not sensational. This music doesn't wear out. As a bonus, this album includes a cover of Depeche Mode's Stripped. Don't expect a limp-wristed rendition like the original. Rammstein have recorded the definitive version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic metal. Teutonic style Dec 21 2010
By Brian Ashe TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you don't know this group, and you like classic metal, this album is for you. Every bit as good as any Metallica, with a coarse and guttural lead singer, great power chords, a female chorus, and really cool lyrics. For anyone with a smattering of German, the lyrics make sense. Even without, the music is great for head banging. Just their best ever.

For gatechnerd, German is a bit more complex than you think. There are puns! So, "Du hast" is a pun between "You have [asked me]" and "You hate me". You may have studied German for a few years, but I am German. Also, the band put out out a version with English lyrics, and it's "You hate me, you hate me to say, and I did not obey."

5.0 out of 5 stars Late, Late Review Jan. 2 2008
By ...
Format:Audio CD
This album is called Rammstein's opus. I agree that this is Rammstein in their prime. The only problem you might have is the band only speaks German in their songs, but it makes them a lot better that way. Either way, you might want to brush up on your German language skills.

So, what's to tell you? This isn't a heavy metal album, it's more industrial. But there still is cruncy guitar hooks in songs like Engel, and Du Hast. Du Hast often causes people to argue about the meaning of the song, A LOT.

5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is The One Feb. 26 2006
By Trevor
Format:Audio CD
In 1997 Rammstein came out with their second album Sehnsucht. This is by far their best album if you enjoy their heavier songs and riffs. This is the only album that does not have a song i only mildly enjoy, this one is their finest work of art in many peoples opinions. Every song sounds different from the last but they all have a feel to them that you cant help but enjoy. If you've heard the singles Du Hast and Engel, you would understand. Du Hast is their most popular song with the western music crowd and its all people really listen for, but if you do al little looking into them, youll find a band more than worth your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely check out April 18 2005
By Mark J.
Format:Audio CD
Rammstein have become legends in their own field, creating music that's not industrial, or metal, yet a cross-breed of both. If you like heavy, head-bobbing music, you'll like Sehnsucht, and basically any other Rammstein album. Don't be turned away by the german vocals. They are what makes Rammstein, who they are, and translations are available if you look for them...

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearing up a misconception! July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've heard that "Du Hast" translates to "You Hate".
IT DOESN'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you listen to the record, he says "Du, Du hast. Du, du hast, du hast mich. Du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab nichts gesagt". For those out there that don't speak German, it means "You, you have. You, you have, you have me. You have me asked, and I have nothing said". Put in a complete sentence, it means "You asked me, and I said nothing." He's asking a question, past-tense you ignorant idiots! Learn something about the language before you make a ham-fisted attempt to translate it. If it were meant to mean "You Hate", it would be "Du Hasst". Big difference.
I've studied German now for 4 years. I'm not freakin' wrong.
The whole song is a play on German wedding vows. The verses are saying "Do you want to be faithful to her until death?" and instead of saying "Ja" (yes for those of you who are clueless about other cultures) he says "Nein!" (no). The rest of the album is as good as "Du Hast", but (thankfully) much less misunderstood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introduced Rammstein to a wider audience July 17 2011
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Sehnsucht was the first Rammstein album I've owned and since then it has always been my personal favorite release by the band (the band also released some great albums afterwards such as Mutter). I remember thinking how powerful Till Lindemann's voice and the guitars sounded and how their heavy sounded blended perfectly with Techno while still maintaining the heaviness (much like their excellent debut album Herzerleid). In their early years Rammstein were often attributed to the Industrial genre. It's powerful, edgy and the music has some great techno sensibilities, it's Rammstein in early stages and at their best. Sehnsucht was the album that introduced a lot of people to the band with "Du Hast", including myself. Before I gave the band a chance I was skeptical to whether or not I would like them as their singing is mostly in German (the Depeche Mode cover "Stripped" is in English and the band has since done songs in Spanish with "Te Quiero Puta" and in French "Frueling In Paris"). Looking back I was wrong, terribly wrong as singing in their native language makes the band sound more unique and proves that Metal can rock in more than one language. In fact the band's music made me want to understand German and look up the songs and their meanings.

Rammstein's sound relies on Till's deep voice (how about those rolling "R"s!) and their heavy use of power-chords. I heard some people say that the band sounds like Nazis or others mocking Till's voice but Rammstein couldn't care less what you think of them, they already have fans all over the globe and make a living off music. Besides Till's vocals are perfect for Metal as they're strong, menacing and powerful.
