Rammstein - _Live Aus Berlin_
(Motor/Mercury, 1999)
by: Adam Wasylyk (10 out of 10)
Having picked up their last album _Sehnsucht_ and seen them in concert on their Toronto stop last June, I've been on a Rammstein high these last few months. These industrial metallers can't do wrong; their wondrous live set combined with a lethal array of tracks make this band a must see. Capitalizing on their new-found popularity after supporting Korn and afterwards doing their own headlining tour, the band have released a live album that nearly solidifies the kinetic energy and passion they have on stage. Performing their best tracks ("Spiel Mit Mir", "Bestrafe Mich", "Sehnsuct," "Asche Zu Asche", "Du Hast", "Engel", "Bueck Dich"... there's so many!), only the visuals of a Rammstein set (bright lights, lasers, water-jet penises, etc.) prevent this album from being the perfect example of a Rammstein live show. Hearing the crowd sing with the band and cheer them on sends chills through the spine, you feel like you're right in the centre of it all. The sound is amazing (besides a couple of moments here and there), the selection of tunes is absolutely perfect... there's nothing of real substance to criticize. I'm in awe, which is a rarity these days. It's the best live album I've ever heard.
