5/5 ·
"We just push boundaries ( Quote: Till Lindemann to Kerang magazine) We can't help it if people don't like those boundaries being pushed". With reviews in the past saying "this is great music to invade Poland" or how about "sending the peasants fleeing into their barns and bolting the doors" you know this should be one good Metal album and expectations that you have,should be met with another classic Rammstein album.

Recorded in 2000 and released the following year in April with five singles pulled from the album and for a non english and Metal production it made number ten in the charts in Australia which is no mean feat as the world was Eminem crazy around that time and rap was providing fierce competition for any genre of music let alone Metal.

This was their third studio release and begins with Mein Herz Brennt with that pounding chorus but the second track with the sound of the Jackboots intro is one catchy tune and with the repetition of the title and a nice tasty lead break near the end of the tune you have something that is completely suitable if an invasion of a nearby country is your ambition..Driving stuff . Also was the first single from the album. Track five is the next stop and that being the song Fever FreI! which was another single taken from the album for a soundtrack as the proceeding track Ich Will was also issued as a single but it is Fever Frei! with it's quiet little keyboard intro which quickly dissolves to what musically is the complete opposite with driving guitars and rythmn and once again it is those chorus's that the band does so well with the repetition of Bang Bang Fever Frei. Only just over three minutes in length and three wonderful minutes it is. Along comes the title Mutter which follows and is slower in Tempo than the proceeding two but bold would be the most suitable description of this wonderful song. Every song contained within this album is worthy of mention as there is not a poor one. Why the female Bobo who is again providing assistance with Till's vocals is not a band member has me a bit puzzled as she is nearly always there with their albums. Track 11 Nebel is the finisher and one great finisher it is. Another of their ballads could be the best description with the spoken verse by Till and yes it is that use of chorus again that makes the song with Till Lindemann soaring vocals in that wonderful German dialect and language.

Mutter in German means Mother and for me that is the best description because this is a Mother of an Industrial Metal album.
