Following on from the success of the album Reise Reise, German hardrockers Rammstein have returned with 'Rosenrot'(Red-rose). Their sixth studio album has been much anticipated, especially since winning the recent award "Best Selling Artist Around The World" at this year's World Music Awards in Los Angeles, where they were in the company of other such winners as 50 Cent, Gwen Stefani, eminem and U2.

- When the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, and Communism along with it, little did the world know that the monolithic regime-metal of Rammstein had been growing up behind it, soon to release itself upon the world and remind the free what it's like to have to walk in line. Wagnerian in scope and mood (if not in sound), 2006's ROSENROT finds the East German group offering up more of their uber-dramatic club/industrial chug that's as cold and massive as the hulking battleship that graces its cover. Imagine the ghost of Austrian pop star Falco inhabiting a giant steel robot and going on a city-destroying rampage; that's what's at stake here, and there are more than enough tracks providing the sort of dancefloor totalitarianism that Goths and rivetheads crave. The big surprise on ROSENROT is the half of the album dominated by ballads, quietly creeping along like blackened ivy up a castle wall. The band's signature German-only lyrics are also subverted here with "Te Quiero P***!," adding Mexican horns and bending their lockstep rhythmic assault to a Latin-centric cadence; it's like a soundtrack to a mechanical bullfight, and helps the group diversify their battle plan.

A very good album for those who enjoy a softer industrial-rock sound, this album is even softer than Reise Reise. Unlike their previous albums, which were released a few years apart, Rosenrot comes only one year after Reise Reise. This is evident in two songs: Hilf Mir, Zestoren, which had alot of potential. It is evident in that: the ends of the songs are erratic, as if having been thrown together and rushed to be finished, and they seem as if they are not going anywhere in terms of lyrics. I never thought the word "beautiful" would be an adjective to describe Rammstein, but Ein Lied is just that. Mann Gegen Mann has a great bass and a strangely recognisable guitar theme, with Till sounding almost cheeky or joking about the subject of the song. The song Rosenrot won the best rock song in Germany in 2006, and the bands management was shocked when it was left off the tracklist for Reise Reise. The album is a good work of the worlds best band.
"Rosenrot" was another slide into mediocrity for Rammstein. They have changed to a softer industrial sound and lost a lot of the impact of previous releases. For fans of the harder, earlier sounds of Rammstein, this CD will probably disappoint. I really think Rammstein have lost some of their edge here.
Whilst not their most memorable album, Rammstein's 'Rosenrot' is still a welcome addition to the band's catalogue. Blistering tracks like opener 'Benzin', 'Mann Gegen Mann' and 'Wo Bist Tu' sit nicely next to oddities like 'Te Quiero Puta!' (best described as Mariachi metal) and 'Don't Die Before I Do' (a soft duet with Sharleen Spiteri from 80s pop group Texas). Not their best, but still a great listen.
The second half of Reise, Reise has the same problem; easilt forgettable. Sure there are good tidbits on offer here, but this album is easy to play once and forget about. A lot more mellow sounding than the others, Rammstein have done under a lot of development. Die hard fans may want to look fo rthe 2 disc version with a bonus DVD.
Well, where to start with this CD. Why not the beginning. This CD opens with the pacy beating of Benzin and works its way through many ups and one unfortunate down (Te quera Puta) and ends on a sombre note with Ein Leid. From begining to end, this CD will have even the most advent opposer to metal rocking along to the beat. I have to mark it down one point thiugh for that atrocity Te quera Puta, songs like that realy need to be biined
This is easily one of the very best Rammstein albums to date! It has a slower, but very strong theme, a hard beat which gets you going. Also some really slow songs(Ein Lied), Some really funky songs(Zeostorean) and some classicly evil/goth songs(Benzin). Of the entire album, Benzin must be my best, and is in my top 10 Rammstein songs of all time!
a good release by german group rammstein, whose breed of heavy rock has found them many fans world wide. this is a great release, as it contains the great song rosenrot. while the songs are in german, you can learn a bit abut what they are about thru the videos. a must for any fan.
The new lbum by Rammstein, released in 2005 this shows the best of their modern work. Some very heavy songs here, great vocals, really, really good guitar riffs which are very heavy. The drumming is better here than on other rammstein albums. Any rammstein fan should get this, along with any industrial heavy metal fans.
Goodness me! Hasn't every member of this band commited suicide yet? Du Hast? Don't mind if I do. Dull, boring and vulgar for the millionth time around. This band has amazed me in the sense that they are still around. Over it completely. I am also amazed that their are people in the world who actually purchase their albums.
