Album review: Rammstein - 'Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da'
Absolutely no blanks fired
8 / 10 The title of [a]Rammstein[/a]’s sixth album translates as [b]‘There Is Enough Love For Us All’[/b] but luckily doesn’t refer to the band’s recent sojourn into making hardcore porn, which thankfully began and ended with the XXX-rated promo for single [b]‘Pussy’[/b]. This is a relief, because if I wanted to watch some bright purple, throbbing-veined, angry dick spewing filth across the airwaves I’d tune into [i]Littlejohn: Live And Unleashed[/i]. Interestingly [b]‘Pussy’[/b] is the limpest track on offer and is easily outclassed by [b]‘Waidmann’s Heil’[/b]. Based on a Bavarian boar hunter’s greeting, it is one of several oddities here. Elsewhere, however, Ministry-strength guitars and bombast worthy of Queen prove that [a]Rammstein[/a] are still cock of the walk.
