Alright, the boys had fun shooting a fake porn video for the horrible single "Pussy". They always find a way to generate free publicity. Past the outright disappointing single and a few more controversies along the way, Rammstein sixth studio album finally hit the streets at the end of 2009.
Liebe ist für alle da is far from being a monotone effort. While the diversity of the songs might work to the detriment of the album homogeneity, it is refreshing to jump from an odd ballad ["Frühling in Paris"] to a killer of a dark song ["Wiener Blut"]. Some tracks are clearly trademark olden Rammstein while some such as the opener show the progression of the band.
As usual, front-man Till Lindemann has outdone himself with his vocal performance. But Rammstein is one unit, always has been and always will be. The synergy between those guys is alive and well, whether they go into their safe zone with tracks like "Waidmann's Heil" or explore uncharted territories with gems like the distressing and poetic "Donaukinder" or the juggernaut "Halt".
There would be a lot to say about this album, but the main test is that not a single track gets boring for me (apart from "Pussy" I guess). There are a lot of nuances throughout and heaps of intriguing melodies to keep listeners riveted.
Without maybe reaching the cult status of their early efforts, Liebe ist für alle da holds some of the most mature Rammstein songs to date. As expected the band put out some solid trademark songs while showing that they progress musically with each release. Don't forget to get the limited edition since two of the best songs are on the bonus CD. Love is indeed here for all.
