What is clear from reading the other reviews is there is a clear difference of opinion based on what you are expecting to hear - a modern classical music piece or an adaptation of Rammstein.

Let us first dismiss the nay-sayers. This is not Wagnerian. The lyrics are more evocative of Schiller and are the Rammstein originals. The music is more Mahler than Wagner, shown very well at the London Philharmonic performance of this piece I attended last night. This is also not a mass appeal pop-opera record selling project. I'm not aware of Apocalyptica but my guess is they have far more in common with Il Divo or the like than Rammstein, the name carries the suggestion.

This isn't for mass appeal. However I think both classical fans and Rammstein fans will find a lot in this, and I would advise the Rammstein fans to dig out some Mahler and for the classical concert goers to purchase a copy of Herzeleid or Sehnsucht - or download Sehnsucht (from the album of the same name), Mutter (again, aponymous) and Alter Mann (from Sehnsucht) to compare, I think all will be pleasantly surprised and both sets of fans have a lot to offer each other.

I absolutely love this. It's an amazing piece of orchestral music coupled with theatrical dialogue, and I've listened to it many times. It never ceases to fascinate me. Katharina Thalbach is the perfect choice of performer; she gives it just the right amount of theatricality in an intentionally sinister way. The German language somehow adds to the effect. This piece is often described as 'crossover' music, as it's based on music by Rammstein, but I would put it firmly in the realm of contemporary classical - but with a difference. If you want peaceful parlour music this is not for you. But if you want excitement of a very unusual kind, you may love this just as much as I do.

With the success of Apocalyptica creating classical/string arrangements for Metallica, it was inevitable that we'd see a spate of people doing similar things, which I suppose is where this album comes from. However, it's remarkable that the music of a band like Rammstein - which is highly operatic and orchestral in tone anyway and plainly owes much to the great germanic composers of the past - can be translated to full opera and orchestration so badly.
Plainly the composer is heavily influenced by Wagner, but he lacks Wagner's touch of genius and plainly has no empathy for the music of Rammstein - a fatal flaw. Music which should be bombastic (who, upon hearing of an operatic translation of Rammstein's music would expect it not to be?) is rendered leaden and dull and ultimately unsatisfying and unengaging. There are one or two highlights, such as the opening Mein Hertz Brennt, but after an hour of this stuff you'll come to the conclusion that your money would have been much better spent on Apocalyptica, or even another copy of Mutter or Reise, Reise.
It's an album which doesn't do anything for anyone - Rammstein fans will be disappointed that many of the orchestrations sound little or nothing like their originals, and Opera lovers will sinply hear a second-rate Wagner knock-off with none of the great man's fire. One for completists only.

I don't know much about the German group Rammstein but I know that this is a remarkable, deep work that reminds me of Berg and Mahler while still feeling contemporary. The vocal and orchestral performances are remarkable. It's a dark song cycle based on the music of Rammstein, a German heavy metal band (Metallica-ish, I suspect). The composer Torsten Rasch has created a masterpiece out of his source material. You need to hear it.

Allegedly based on the music of Rammstein this album plumbs new depths of musical depravity (in a bad way too, not good depravity). This album is actually painful to listen to. It is meant to be "alternative" classical music. Stuff that challanges the listener. And in a way it does. It certainly challenged my sanity and rates as one of the worst pieces of musical misadventure I've ever had the misfortune of listening to.
Buy instead Mutter, the album on which most of this is based upon. It is far more classical and epic in scope and sound than this bizarre, immature attempt at music.
