    Rammstein new album sets the size of one of the ingenious and unique metal acts ever, together. I think I hear a mediocre or so, so song by them by now, but no. This band just gets better and every song is awesome.
      Journey is a great leap for the band, this is simply their creative album musically and I think, even lyrical. If the hearing the accordion on the shanty-ish “Reise Reise”, you know you are something special. The album is different musically in the use of the accordion in Moscow, and the acoustic trappings of Lot, which has a very deep bluesy feel.
      texts you have the madness of Mein Teil (in the history of one of the last notorious murders in Germany), which the ingenious comercialism starkly with America as part singer waxes about the glory of the U.S. domination. Or the big symobolism the Dali Lama, the talks about a plane crash of scared passengers, alluding to the Dali Lama's own true fear of flying. Absoultely brilliant!
      also some nice music in Poignant Ohne Dich (Without You), Tiel and the band has never sounded so wonderful. And the closer Amour sounds like these Germans could easily be comfortable in some dingy Paris cafe.
      An incredibly diverse album full of symbolism, great metal, and especially awesome tunes!

    I'm making a disclaimer for this one. If you listen to Rammstein, because you, as the extremely heavy and fast guitar riffs from the other 3 albums, then I am warning you this album is not nearly so much that it ends in. However, if you like Rammstein, because of the heavy sound, their ability to change tempo mid-song, and their incredibly Deviant metaphorical texts, then this album is for you.
      The band has said that they want to try and sing Till better instead of just talking, and they want their songs have become increasingly complex, and she's just that this is really a better working musicality of the metal, and these songs have a lot more melody than most of their previous works. Of course there are some good tracks on there quick to help, the whole album to move smoothly and let us know that they are still that style, but for the most part this album is much more “beautiful” and less ” hardcore “than their other efforts, and I personally am glad that Rammstein has decided, with their skills a little more and start moving from the standard formula of industrial heavy metal.
      So, if you are ready to hear something new, give this album, just do not expect, Speed Metal. I look forward to seeing them in concert now that she has a wide variety of songs to play, I just hope you come to the States again!

    Rammstein are one of those bands, the one thing, and very good. In the case of the German band, it's very loud, very low-expression-metal music with a sly sense of humor now and again. “Reise, Reise” is largely more of the same, which we expect from them after their last three albums.
      There are several standout tracks here. The opener and title track is based on what seems to have when a lake cottage, at least it seems to have before Till Lindemann voice got on it with a wall of guitars. Nevertheless, the melody is easier to detect than in many previous efforts Rammstein.
      Also of note is “Dalai Lama”, a song about the subject rather typical Rammstein – dead. These characteristics of the “dead voices” that often and on the surface seems to be a rather standard track. However, there are two interesting aspects. Firstly, as other reviewers have pointed out that the title refers to a famous Tibetan monk and his fear of flying (depending on the flight described by Till, I think I would be a little concerned about the arrest of another level such as also). More interesting to some, but the lyrical parallels with the famous German poem “Der Erlkönig”. In typical fashion, Rammstein is a level of mordant and sadistic tragedy of the story, which has to be heard to be believed.
      Another interesting track “Moscow”, which features singing in places Russian (Cyrillic in the liner notes). This is a very fast and should certainly beat among the fans of these kinds of things.
      Until interest in perversion manifests itself in the track “Mein Teil” (literally: “Mein Teil”, which means that … … even it out) . This piece is inspired by the Armin Meiwes cannibalism trial in Germany, and in my ears at least, has overtones of a much earlier with Rammstein – Herzeleid ” 's” spawning season “in the chorus. However, the shout chorus at the “For you are / what you eat / And you know / What it is” ( “Then you are / what you eat and you all know / what it is) is , it is worth the price of admission.
      Unlike many other reviewers, I also really enjoyed the single from “America”. There is something to say for Till's vocals soaring over the line “We are all living in the USA / America is wunderbar,” all in all sounding reminiscent of “yearning” 's “Stripped”.
      Is there a transition from the incredible 'mother'? Probably not. The sound is still basically the same and the topic also. More importantly, there is no real redeeming value in this album? Almost certainly not. Rammstein suppliers are still very loud, very angry-sounding German metal type. For a fan, the fact that most of the tracks here could be exchanged with those on each of the three previous albums is more than enough support for this album. For those of you who may not be the idea, stay well away.

    Superb, Powerful
    I was very skeptical at first thinking that it was hard to surpass excellent albums such as Mutter and Sehnsucht. But this album is amazing and totally blew me away.

    Top notch
    People who know me think I’m crazy for liking Rammstein. It’s really heavy, really agressive, angry, and in GERMAN! – which I don’t understand at all.

    It rocks!
    I have always been a fan of Rammstein but I must confess that this is actually the first cd I have purchased of theirs. Mostly because I love the song Amerika.

    Rammstein returns….in color
    Not sure if that makes sense, but as good as their previous albums were, most of the songs were either slow or driving.

    Fresh from their 2001 masterpiece “Mutter”, German industrial metal merchants Rammstein return with a bang with their phenomenally epic 2004 masterpiece entitled “Reise, Reise”…
