The time Rammstein took to make "Liebe is Für Alle Da" is nothing compared to the time that has just passed for the release of his successor. For ten years the band has not been inactive between best of and tours, but nothing concrete on a new record. It began to take shape in 2017 and since then the band worked on its marketing. The result is an eponymous album with a very sober cover that could be divided into two parts.

The first act of this "return" brings together the singles and the least we can say is that this idea is brilliant. Rammstein is back in Olympic form with this clever mix of electro, spicy metal and dance that he has popularized. 'Deutschland' and 'Zeig Dich' are joyful with their unifying choruses and their irresistible rhythm. The martial force is there and Till's singing shines brightly with this vicious side so seductive. In between, there is the dance "Radio", very electro and close to the sound of a Kraftwerk, with a chorus that stays in mind. In this first part we must also mention "Sex" and "Ausländer", just as effective, stirring and martial for the first, more melodic but just as dancing for the second.

If the record stopped there, it would be the same as the first discs but it has a second part and this one is chaotic. The rhythm is slower and melancholic and if Till shines in it, boredom awaits. 'Weit Weg', 'Hallomann' and 'Was Ich Liebe' listen to each other without passion, missing the little something that makes the difference. Only "Tattoo" finds the electro martial tone of the first part with an impeccable chorus and this irresistible rhythm. We will also mention "Diamond", a very short and pretty ballad carried by a Till who becomes a melancholic storyteller. 

In the end, this "Rammstein" cut in two is an album with an exciting first part that finds a sound worthy of the first steps and another more calm, less powerful and effective. Despite the downsides, this new opus by Rammstein is quite correct. It is certainly not yet at the level of excellence of the first three albums but he is getting closer.

Une chronique pas assez développée. Dommage. Un titre très intéressant comme Puppe, ne serait-ce que pour le chant de Till qui n'a peut être jamais été aussi violent et habité, méritait à lui seul une mention à mon sens. Et il était dans la 2e partie, soit disant plus faible... Inversement, un titre comme Auslander parait de manière évidente être l'un des plus faibles de Rammstein, mais se voit qualifié "d'efficace" et "dansant" sans développer davantage, alors qu'il est pourvu étonnamment d'arrangements electro très contemporains (comprendre par là : extrêmement convenus et donc à mille lieux de ce qui se faisait précisément sur le 1er album). Le constat final est toutefois juste, cet album ne valant pas les premiers, mais se défendant très bien aussi. Après tout, Rammstein est et restera avant tout un groupe de scène.
