Back to perfection
on 2 January 2007
I didnt like "Reise Reise", to me it was the poorest album, made for mass-chanting concerts, music seemed too similar and much of the same. It lacked that imagination and blend of heavy music with synth-futuristic sounds.
After that disappointment, i was very afraid to buy "Rosenrot", now im glad i took the risk.
This album is a very balanced piece of work, powerful, inspiring and as good as the 1st and 2nd albums at least ("Mutter" is a mark hard to surpass).
Favorites.. "Benzin", "Rosenrot", "Spring", "Wo Bist Du", "Stirb Nich Vor Mir" (the slow one in the album), "Zerstören" (perhaps my favorite of all the bunch), "Ein Lied"
Other songs arent bad, on the contraty, powerful "Mann Gegen Mann" or even entertaining "Te Quiero Puta!" (the comedy track). I cant seem to find a bad track in here.
In the present-days, listening to a new album with more than 5 good tracks is a rare thing, the majority here is excelent, the rest very good. That's enough for me to consider Rammstein in top-shape and cant wait to hear new stuff from them again.
If you love the first 3 albums, you wont be disappointed at all. 5 star to the art-cover also, "Mutter" and "Rosenrot" album-art are their best to date.
