Du Hast (Rammstein) (LP 109)

Rammstein Sehnsucht (CD - Motor Music, 1997) ****

Genre: German pop/ rock

Places I remember: Real Groovy, Auckland

Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: Du Hast

Gear costume: Sehnsucht, Engel

Active compensatory factors: Du Hast on the live album clued me in to this earlier album. It's a beast of a song live and great on this album as well.

The industrial-metal tag is appropriate for this album - from the cover portraits to the use of Flake's keyboards that are playful at times, ominous at others - all coming together via superb production by Jacob Hellner.

It's one great song after another! And the fact that the band use German lyrics just adds to the whole mystery.

Where do they all belong? This is positioned just before the breakthrough Live Aus Berlin album.
