5.0 out of 5 stars Laibach - Opus Dei 9 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album, it changed my life. That's how good I think it is.
Don't listen to it thinking "rock" or "metal", "techno" or "pop" this is in a category of it's own. Mixing rock, jazz and a host of other styles with orchestrations so good, Wagner himself would appraise it.
Onto the tracklisting itself:
Leben Heisst Leben: A great intro, a Deutsch version of track 5 with rearranged instruments. Great vocals and arrangments with a good guitar solo (which is meant to be OTT into the extreme).
Geburt Einer Nation: Got them banned, big time. Listen to it and you'll think you know why. Listen to it a few more times (or check whom actually wrote the song, and what it is a cover version of and you realise that the song is really a sheep in wolf's clothing. Awesome song though, trumps the original like most Laibach covers.
Leben-Tod: I prefer the Peel Sessions version but still it's a worthy song.
F.I.A.T.: Awesome. From the dramatic sweeping intro to the thundering beat and rythm. The vocals are haunting as well, and the message is so clear over the song.
Opus Dei: English language version and rearrangement of track one. This song introduced me to Laibach. Such a proud song, nay, anthem. This cover of a seemingly pointless song is so great it's almost unexplainable. It's akin to a national anthem, with lyrics about "when we all give the power..." etc and a stunning arrangement to match. You have to listen to get the full experience.
Trans-National: Thundering, pounding. Again, I prefer the Peel Sessions and Occupied Europe NATO Tour versions but still, the studio version is worthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teutontrip 20 April 2009
By BORU
Format:Audio CD
An extraordinary record, which stands the test of time. Utterly unique and essential to any broad based collection. Although the group had what was likely, a faux fascist image, there is no doubting the power and hypnotic elements that draw you in - the thunderous drumbeat and eerie horns, both disturb and exite; one can appreciate how the rallies of the30's, hypnotised the participants - that is both the power and the warning that is the essence of Laibach - but it's ok to enjoy the buzz

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Laibach Album 3 July 2014
By Josefov
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was my first Laibach album. A friend at school lent it to me but I had to visit another friend in order to be able to have a listen (CD players were still a bit of a luxury). I will never forget her face when Leben heisst Leben marched out of the speakers. Well, at least one of us became Laibach fan for life...

Musically it's the most essential of Laibach's albums, presenting the pinnacle of the style that elevated them to the position they occupy since (there are, of course, other artistic and political aspects of their activities, but let's just stick to the music here). Of course, it's not for everybody. The martial industrial, as it's been described, is highly uncompromising and sits quite comfortably on the same shelf as early Swans and let's not forget that Laibach is quoted as the strongest influence by members of Rammstein.
But the thing I love about it most, I think is that it's all so funny. The moment I recognised Life is Life and One Vision I genuinely laughed and they still amuse me today, some twenty years later.

If you've just about heard about Laibach and want to give it a try, this is a great album to start, but I would highly recommend a streaming service before purchasing.
