RAMMSTEIN: "Liebe Ist Für Alle Da"      www.rammstein.de 

first review of two

review by Matthew "Newbreed99" Haumschild___ 


A little monotonous and a bit forgettable.

              I was skeptical when I bought this CD. Skeptical because Rammstein hasn’t toured the U.S. (or Canada) since their 2000 Album “Mutter.” “Reise, Reise” came out, which was an awesome disc by the way, and they toured everywhere but the U.S. Okay. I can live with that. “Rosenrot” came out, late in the U.S. (and only the U.S., came out on time everywhere else), not only was the album their worst, but they again didn’t travel to the U.S. to tour. So I’ve been skeptical, is this band for real? If they say, “We don’t have the money” but bands like Krisiun from Brazil can tour?


              In the meantime, Richard Kruspe came out with disc with Emigrate, which was a phenomenal album. And Rammstein went on hiatus for a while, which made me wonder if Rammstein was going to be relevant anymore. But, Kruspe did marry an American and lives in New York and Rammstein did record this CD in the U.S… So I am not sure what they think of the country I am writing from.


              I picked up the album anyway out of curiosity, which for me is a big thing considering I was a Rammstein collector with over 50 Rammstein CD’s, boot legs and singles. The first track started a bit too slow for me, it just sounded “okay” to me. It was easily forgettable. “Ich Tu Dir Weh,” the first time I had heard it, I just thought it was a catchy song. Then I read that the song caused some controversy in Germany, suggesting violence on women. That got me curious as to what the lyrics meant. So I looked them up, thank you google, and the lyrics are crazy! I like it! “I hurt you, I am not sorry, It’ll go you good…” ect. Those words were echoed in the chorus, translated from the German. After reading the translation, it instantly became one of my favourite tracks. It’s a powerful song although it’d be monotonous if it weren’t for Flake’s synth. The guitars and the drums sound like a typical Rammstein song, kind of a marching-metal sound but this time, Till is taking his time singing this and isn’t barking out words like he has in some of his songs.


              Another one of my favourites was, “Frühling in Paris,” maybe because I am getting older and more sentimental. The song seems to be about a man and a woman, they broke up, they fought a lot, he couldn’t understand her language but he loved her, and he has no regrets. The only thing metal about the song was the distorted guitars. Otherwise, it was probably the only love song Rammstein has ever done (that I can think of) and it’s a good song too.


              I could resist it, but I won’t, “P***Y” is such a weird song. If you haven’t heard it or heard of it, the song’s theme is obvious. Although, if I may ponder, till could be talking about prostitution in Germany. Some people don’t know this, but there are brothel’s in Berlin. As an American I think this odd. The only State that allows that is Nevada but only in certain counties so to hear about it in a major historical city like Berlin…just seems weird. “P***Y“is a catchy song. Till actually sings this one half in English and the other half in German, which kind of reminds me of “Amerika” but I don’t think Rammstein is making a statement in this song as much as it is tongue-in-cheek. At first I hated this song. I thought the lyrics were dumb and that it would only appeal to teenagers who dug only dick and fart jokes (like me about 5 years ago), but the beat was just so damn catchy! I couldn’t help but to listen to it and I grew to like the song. I wouldn’t really call it a heavy song, but it is well-composed.


              The song, “Liebe Ist Für Alle Da” is a true to form metal song. Another song that actually surprised me because it sounds different from the average Rammstein song, it almost sounds like a metal jam song where the boys are hammering the song out proving that they can do more than sound like itself over and over again that if they wanted to, they could write the ultimate metal song. It’s a fast, heavy, balls to the wall song that’s great to work out to.


              Overall, I felt like this album should have came out after “Reise Reise.” I felt that Rammstein was back to form with this. Would I recommend it? To be honest, the other tracks were kind of boring and a little monotonous and a bit forgettable. I felt like they were filler songs outside the ones I mentioned above.  In a way, I wish there was an EP with those songs on it, then I’d recommend it.
