Luckily the rest of the album is much better, with some heavy hitting songs. The sound is still pretty much true to the Rammstein formula, maybe a bit trashier and dirtier. Blast beats and lead-heavy guitar riffs of course, blended with Till Lindeman's sometimes brutal, sometimes sweet voice - and this time we can hear him sing in French as well. Electronics still play second fiddle to the guitars, but they are there at times.
Rammstein's sense for melodies still helps them stand out from other riff bands. "Ich tu dir weh" is where it all comes together, with grinding riffs complement the beautiful chorus.
I think Rammstein still are relevant, and they continue to make some fantastic compositions from time to time. Their crazy sex shenanigans is unfortunately something you have to put up with.
