Album Review

Taking three years to release their follow-up to MUTTER is a good idea since REISE, REISE is more of the same — the same grit, the same growl, and the same dramatic, orchestra choruses. There's a bit more ingenuity in the production and a little more focus in the songs but not enough for the nonfaithful to pick up on. Unfortunately the lead single, "Mein Teil," is no "Du Hast," but the damning "Amerika" almost equals their breakthrough track. Whether or not Rammstein's label has the guts to release the band's acerbic "Coca-Cola/Sometimes War" view of the States as a single is another question, but it's the key track to the album, an album that has a couple more, minor surprises. The loose, bluesy guitar on "Los" adds some quirk to the band's stern, Teutonic palette, while the sinister "Stein Um Stein" creeps more than stomps in parts. That's it for twists and turns, but few bands can industrially grind as convincingly as Rammstein. Same as it ever was, REISE, REISE won't do much to increase the band's fan base, but being a tight, free-of-filler album, it'll satisfy the faithful.

An ok album, but i hate that i tunes has put the Reise Reise Rammstein album under the catagory of pop music >:(((((

Rugged, Orchestral and Epic... a fantastic album!

I have to say, as a dedicated-Coldplay fan, the likes of Rammstein is a far cry from my neck of the woods. It was my flatmate that brought my attention to them, and at the time I had deemed them another metal band.... oh what a mistake that was. Though the sound has the sort grit and power you see in metal bands - This is combined with an orhestral overtone that is almost poetic in places. Till's superb vocals almost effortlessly range from harsh and gritty (in the likes of 'Mein Teil' and 'Stein Um Stein') to empowering orchestral ('Reise, Reise', 'Keine Lust', 'Amerika') and even douse it with a poetic sentimentality too ('Ohne Dich' and 'Armour' spring to mind). The Industrial Metal band certainly pack a punch. There's more to them than meets the eye, and they clearly demonstrate a brilliant talent in creating tracks that are just infused with raw power. So even if metal isn't your "sound", don't write them off just yet.

'Keine Lust' is what won me over. 'Epic' doesn't do the chorus justice. Personally, this song's the best one to try out if you're new to the band and want a taster. As for Rammstein fans - the album still has the same sound and talent that we saw in 'Mutter', so you shouldn't be disappointed. Overall, the album is full of a lot of great stage-lifters, with a brilliant helping of poetic ballads. Only a few weak songs on this one.

1. The album kicks off with the powerful 'Reise, Reise'; almost like a rallying call to everyone. The chorus is very powerful
2. 'Mein Teil' is a very 'harsh', grisly song. Unless you're a metal fan, this one will probably need several listens to get into. Granted, the song is based upon insanity... and it captures it well...
3. 'Dalai Lama' (if anyone's interested in the title - It's a reference to the Dalai Lama's fear of flying) has a shady, sinister sound to it. The backing vocals work very nicely on this one, and it leads brilliantly into:
4. 'Keine Lust' - As mentioned, brilliant
5. 'Los' sounds like a filler to me. It seems to lack the same power of the other songs and feels very lack-luster
6. 'Amerika' is a fun addition to the album. Insanely catchy too
7. I can't quite seem to get into 'Moskau'. It's fast-paced, but seems to lack something
8. After the high-octane introduction to the album - Reise Reise starts to soften the tone as they finish with 4 brilliant "ballads" (using the term loosely) - 'Morgenstern' sets things rolling with a brilliant operatic choir adding backing vocals to Till's.
9. 'Stein Um Stein' also requires a couple of listens. It's dark, harsh, yet powerful. Though it feels somewhat "abrasive" for the first few listens
10. 'Ohne Dich' comes next, and is one of my favourites. It's beautiful and poetic with some wonderful backing vocals to it.
11. The album is rounded off with 'Armour'. Whilst it doesn't quite match 'Ohne Dich', it's a good finisher with a 'haunting' edge to it

Now, I can appreciate I've used a lot of abstrast terms when describing the album (and hit the thesauras pretty hard on this one) - But the power, poetic edge and sheer strength of the album is something insanely difficult to describe. It's one of those albums that becomes stronger the more you listen to it, so expect it to take a few listens until it starts to "click".

It's different!

this album is done in a different style to their earlier stuff, like Sehnsucht. it is a more "poppisch" album, as they would put it. Nonetheless, still 5*.
