[Music] Reise Reise - Rammstein

Rammstein's latest, Reise Reise, isn't quite as frenetic as I've come to expect from this German metal outfit. There are some excellent tracks, such as Keine Lust (which also has a great video clip) and Amerika (another indication these guys don't take themselves too seriously), but there are too many "ballads" and not enough guttural shouting and hard rocking. I'd definitely put their earlier albums Mutter (with the incredibly catchy Links 2-3-4) or Herzeleid (their debut in 1995) ahead of this.
