Album review: Rammstein - 'Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da'
Absolutely no blanks fired
8 / 10 The title of Rammstein’s sixth album translates as ‘There Is Enough Love For Us All’ 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 ‘Pussy’. 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 Littlejohn: Live And Unleashed. Interestingly ‘Pussy’ is the limpest track on offer and is easily outclassed by ‘Waidmann’s Heil’. 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 Rammstein are still cock of the walk.
