Wow! PSB meets teutonic industrial heavy metal.
I must say that this is a rather surprising combination - but then Chris Lowe said once that the Boys were looking to collaborate with musical universes that were vastly different from theirs.
Here, no need denying that Rammstein's guitar-heavy, heavy-metal sound is indeed eons away from PSB's "clean" and educated pop music. However, there is no denying that the original version of "Mein Teil", so noisy, so raw, so unsettling, so primal - is actually an interesting piece of music. It becomes quite obsessive and the whole thing almost sounds like dark magic at times - clearly not my cup of tea, but a very efficient single nonetheless.
In this context, the two remixes by Pet Shop Boys manage to respect the overall tone of the song while permeating it with their own dance and synth culture. The "you are what you eat mix" is very successful, more so IMHO than the "there is no guitars on this mix" which, as its name indicates, tends to emasculate the song - but I guess emasculation is the whole point of the track, so maybe the Boys's remix was a gigantic practical joke. Who knows?
An interesting listening experience altogether, and miles better than what PSB did for Yoko Ono or Atomizer the year before. Not sure I will come back to this often though...

This single from Rammstein off their yet to be released album sees the group carry on the formula for songs that they developed on mutter. The song is made up from the distinctive Rammstein base and guitar riff that continues playing with the keyboard's over it. The sharpening of the knives at the start of the track give some ideas to what the song is about, which is the German cannibal that was in the news last year. Mein Teil translates to My Part. The other versions leave a lot to be desired. The first by the pet shop boys sees a strong dane beat put to it but it's still bearable. Which contrasts the next remix. A total dance track bt Arthur Baker looses the riff and all the lyrics bar 3 words. Totally unbearable and its over 7 minuites. The final remix is a guitar less one again be the Pet Shop Boys. This is also too long and not as good as their first but has sone interesting keyboards. Mein Teil is a great song but the remixes are poor. There is only one Rammstein and their not it.

A superb first single from Rammsteins upcoming album "Mein Teil" is influenced heavily by Armin Meiwes, yes that's right the "German cannibal" who advertised online for a dinner partner... a partner who wanted to be served as that dinner (he also made up several lunches, or so I believe).
Typical Rammstein then! I have never heard Till sound as creepy as he does here, singing as he is from the perspective of the victim rather than the killer, his voice is nasal and... different is all I can think of to say. Of course once the chorus kicks in we're treated to his powerhouse vocals and boy are they as good as ever.
Mein Teil is a wonderfully crafted song from the opening strings with knives being sharpened over the top, to the superb guitars and choral backing (is that a sample from {the original} Texas Chain Saw Massacre in there?) it really sets the bar for the upcoming album. According to music journalists this is one of the weaker tracks from that album. All I can say is... the rest of the tracks must be bordering on the divine!
Oh FYI, Mein Teil means my part. Yes, it means THAT part of your anatomy. And its being served up fried on porcelain! Das ist mein Teil! Nice!

If you were anyway anxious that Rammstein would not be up to matching the quality of the Mutter material on their next releases, fear not. Mein Teil is a storming return. Very atmospheric, macabre, and absolutely as heavy as hell. It's a tale of canabalism, based on the recent high profile court case in Germany. "You are what you eat" go the lyrics! And just wait until you see the video - it's a work of pure twisted genius. The end scene depicting the band as rabid dogs on a leash being led out of the U-Bahn station is hilarious!
This song will be a live favorite. Just right for punching the air and getting caught in a mosh. Fantastic!!

The reason I decided to review this single almost 8 years after its release is that this May (2012) I discovered -quite by chance, searching the internet for something on the Pet Shop Boys, no less- a new video that has been made for a remix of this track. The new clip appears to have been produced/released in 2011. The original video for the track is (in my opinion) Rammstein's best video ever. The "new" one, shot at the same time as the original, has been made by Zoran Bihac (the original clip's director) and appears to be a sort of prequel; a very nice enhancement/addition to the original clip, I have to say. But more on that later.

I am not sure whether I'll show as a "verified Amazon purchaser" for this single, given I got it 8 years ago, but I did purchase this through Amazon at the time. I also got the album this track comes from ("Reise, Reise") at the same time. It remains my favourite R+ album. Because I found "Reise, Reise" to be so good, I ended up listening to the entire album all the time for convenience and, unfortunately and very stupidly (because I had also just given birth at the time this single was released and I was not feeling very musical on the whole), I ended up not opening this CD single until months later. When I did finally open it and inserted it in my laptop, I discovered that, initially, through purchasing this single, one could have accessed a lot of extra stuff via Rammstein's official website. Unfortunately, I can't tell you what those extras were and if they were good value for money, as they were only available for a limited time and by the time I opened the single, these were no longer available.

Like the other reviewers here, I couldn't say I am exactly enthralled by the three remixes on offer.
