5.0 out of 5 stars Industrial Metal's finest offering, 30 Nov 2001
This review is from: Mutter (Audio CD)
Industrial metal has definitely seen its pinnacle with the arrival of Mutter. The German band has fantastic composition and lyric writing skills. The tracks that really make this album are the 1st 4. Unable to speak German I cannot comment on each songs content, except for a couple of words here and there!
Mein Herz Brennt - A melodic start followed by a plunge into powerful metal, churning bass and shattering vocals. A very good start to the album.
Links 2 3 4 - If you have the chance to see the video to this song take it! It is great, the driving marching beat, the powerful chords and ants. Hundreds of ants!! Fantastic.
Sonne - The transfer from Links to Sonne is great. A grinding slide down the fret board of an overly charged guitar stepping straight into a count culminating in one of the best songs for a slow mosh! This is by far the best song on the album. The composition is fantastic and the chorus is melodic and powerful.
Ich Will - Another, unsurprisingly, very good song. Still strong, still heavy and powerful yet strangely insidious in places. With the constant "Ich Will" from the backing vocals the song is filled with determination.
Other songs of note are;
Mutter itself, a beautifully crafted piece of music. Rammstein are probably the only band I know that can get away with shouting "Mother" into the mic and making it sound good! Would that work in English, nope!
Spieluhr is slightly more paced and relaxed. Not a massive attack of blasting distortion but not as calm and sedate as Nebel.
Zwitter is a great moshing song, with the high and low counterpoint chanting the chorus like a drill instructor.
Adios starts out like a moshing tune that will break your neck before it's done. Speed metal soon gives way to a chorus with driving rhythm that is liable to break some bones through its sheer force.
BUY IT NOW!! Why are you still reading this! You should have scrolled to the top and clicked BUY at least two minutes ago! I echo everyone who has posted a review of this album. It is the best industrial metal out at the time, nothing better. Purchase without fear of disappointment. Thank you for listening!

I think Reise, Reise is even better.
Try it and learn German. The lyrics, choice of words and ambiguity is absolutely astonishing (and dark). You will love the band even more

The way you put it, it sounded like you thought "Ich will" means "I will". In fact it means "I want to". Oh yeah, and this is my 4th Rammstein album. Love them all :) Listening to rammstein with the lyrics in english on the screen helped me learn german, with a basic knowledge already. I'vehad a go at translating the titles for you, and i'm sure google wouldn't be far off.

5: Fire free (fire at will, perhaps?)
6: Mother
7: Playtime (literal clock)

10: Adios
11: *AGain, no idea*
