I first heard of Rammstein early in ‘99, when the all-night music show here Down-Under called RAGE played the Rammstein song clip. I was impressed by the spectacular clip with its flames & fireworks. A few months later they played Engel, truly a great song with a very cool , expensive-looking clip. At that point I rushed out & bought the album SEHNSUCHT. Despite the fact I don’t understand German, the powerful combination of voice, music, power and high quality song construction made this CD one of my favourites & most played. Naturally when I saw in Amazon.Com that a LIVE CD had just been released, I ordered it immediately. It arrived here in Australia just 12 days later & went straight into the stereo. Just a few tracks in, I was blown away by the high quality recording & mixing of a live concert. The cover credits the Eurosound Mobile, and whoever they are , they must have the best equipment on the planet. It’s like they crammed several thousand people into a regular recording studio ! Wow ! About half the songs are already on the Sehnsucht album, but don’t let this put you off, because, apart from the crowd noise giving a nicely different edge to to the regular studio treatment, this CD weighs in at a hefty 78 minutes, so there is plenty of value here. Apart from just having well-constructed songs, Rammstein must also consist of some great musicians, because many music sequences are almost indistinguishable from the studio equivalent, apart of course from the crowd noise which is never overly-intrusive. The concert was recorded on the 22-23 August 1998 at Parkbuhne Wuhlheide, Berlin. If you already like Rammstein I highly recommend this CD. Don’t hesitate, just get it. If however you are cautious in general about buying live CD’s due to varying quality, let me reassure you that this is the best live mix you are ever likely to hear, so go for it & don’t forget to crank up the volume.
