Peppering Mutter with a large dose of orchestral influence blended with eerily voiced lyrics and a healthy dose of grinding guitars, creepy samples, and superbly formatted songs, the group from East Germany manages to step up in their creative ladder and form a refreshing sound that brings memories of their past albums but does not become a stereotypical cd.
In this album Rammstein address the public/critics' views of their music in the song Links 234 (the critics once accused Rammstein of Nazism, this is their cleverly disguised retraction to the false claims). Gothic, classical influence is pleasantly explored in Sonne(Sun) and Nebel(Fog)to extremely good results. A sense of fantastical horror is meticulously threaded in the tunes, Mein Herz Brennt(My Heart Burns) and Spieluhr(Music Box)which, in my personal opinion are the paragon of the album. Fast metal, with a new and crunching melody, can be found in fascinating Zwitter(Hermaphrodite), Rein Raus(In Out), Adios(a very successful punk sound is played out here), Feur Frei(Fire!!), and the incomparable Ich Will(I Want). A very dramatic mode of metal is accomplished in the title track Mutter(Mother) which seeps with sorrow and a heavy pessimism but also has a very important message behind it.
Overall this album proves Rammstein's most intriguing work as the band delves into musical lands they had yet to uncover and do so with no failure.Read more ›
And with their latest album, Mutter, they have done everything right. Containing their powerful, trademark guitar as well as more diverse music and lyrics, this is Rammstein's best album by far. A few songs contain a string orchestra, and Till Lindeman does more singing than his previous gutteral growls. Fans of their previous albums (Herzeleid and Sehnsucht) will feel right at home with "Mein Herz Brennt", the single "Sonne", and "Feuer Frei!" -- these licks are as exhilirating as anything they've done. However, the songs are not reliant on the guitars, as the orchestral arrangements and further use of electronics contribute more mood to the songs. This musical experimentation is a rousing success -- another step that's not too ambitious, but just right.
Lyrically, Mutter is incredible. A great album just based on the music, when the songs' meanings are discovered, it becomes one of the best albums of the year. Rammstein fans should do themselves a favor and get a German/English dictionary -- you'll gain new respect for these guys.Read more ›
The opening track, Mein Herz Brennt, is a ripper. The lyrics speak of demons, ghosts and black faeries creeping through children's bedrooms and is backed up by a powerful melody that just blows you away once it gets into full swing.
Almost every track on the album from here on features something that makes it memorable. Just a little change in pace here, a little change in melody there, some powerful chorus sections on most and you soon find this album growing on you every time you listen to it.
Tracks like Links 234, Feuer Frei and Rein Raus will satisfy fans of Rammstein's pacy metal style used in their previous albums, while Sonne, Zwitter, Ich Will and the foot-stomping head-banging delight that is Adios oozes with a classy assembly and finish that are often lacking in this genre of music.
Rammstein also shows a gentler side with the tracks Mutter and Nebel, slower paced but no less brilliant.
For me the best song on the album has to be Spieluhr though. Superb, yet eerie lyrics talk about a child being buried alive by accident with a music box in his/her hands. The chorus is fantastic, just about the catchiest thing I've heard in any form of music in a long time, and the whole song is just brilliantly put together like all the other tracks on this album.
Best tracks: Mein Herz Brennt, Sonne, Spieluhr, Adios
Worst track: Rein Raus, if you have to push me for one
Mutter as an album delivers an incredible musical experience and every song deserves its place on the album - no fillers here.Read more ›
