5.0 out of 5 stars Rammstein are the choen ones, 17 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Mutter (Audio CD)
I had heard of them, but never actually heard them. That was all to change however, and so converted me from a "not interested" to an obsessive fan of this band.
Very, very rarely, do I come across a single song which makes me fall in love with a band. In fact, the only time it has ever happened was with Rammstein and the song was Sonne. Pure, dark and 100% industrial metal. When the chord change in the chorus hit I was hooked and still am. The whole album is just superb and diverse. The openig track "Mein Herz Brennt" is laced with electronic violins and the deep (Germa) lyrics are sung around cutting guitar riffs. Links 234 has a marching beat stir emotions, Sonne speaks for itself and Ich Will is the sing a long of the album.
My personal favourites on the album have changed s often it's hard to say which I prefer over all. Every song is very powerful Adios is worth headbanging along to and the excellent Zwitter is, I find, upbeat and always puts me in a good mood.
Rammstein have the talent, insight and sheer brass-neck to change the stereo type of German music forever.
As the band themselves said, they are the most and least German band out there. Most, because of their determination to stick true to their roots, and least because this band do not take themselves seriously. The music is undeniably German. It is powerful, industrial and straight forward.
One word of warning, though. If you buy this album, the chances of you listening to anything else for 6 months are quite slim. Utter brilliance!
