    Everything resonates crystal clear, and I suggest you pick it up for the holiday season. Surely, someone can appreciate its beauty.

    The bulk of Made in Germany is undoubtedly still an acquired taste, but as an overview of the country's biggest rock export, it's a fairly representative collection and showcases them at their best.

    Made in Germany 1995-2011 should be taken at face value, in that; it does a respectable job at celebrating the major hits that have formed the basis of band's success since 1995.

    The first battle cry on this best-of won't prepare non-Rammsteinians for the cabaret bombast that follows.

    All Rammstein songs are masterpiece but in this album that is maybe the best Rammstein have ever done, we've "Sonne" that is the best Rammstein song in my opinion. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Not necessarily a superb piece but definitely an amazing flashback to the glorious discography of Rammstein. A very very good choice of their "best" pieces besides some missing. A really good piece for one of the most unique bands in the world. Expand

    Great tracks on this album. Like the old songs more then the new one. The lyrics are great especially if you understand german. The new song "Mein Land" is a bit different but also awesome.

    Long story short. This band is a masterpiece.

    Rammstein. What can one say? They're German-based metal with electronic nuance throughout all their albums. Featuring lots of production work and quite a bit of processing to get everything just the way they wanted it, Rammstein's discography is a bit of an enigma. They're massively popular, but and acquired taste at the same time. I guess you could say they're the wine that every conniseur loves. Made In Germany is a good collection of hits and must-have tracks that tell the tale of how this band became popular. The mega hit "Du Hast" started their rise to fame, and cuts like "Ich Will" and "Sonne" kept them big into the Y2K era. Sadly, this collection focuses almost exclusively on everything prior to 2009's "Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da", which I consider to be their most complete and freshening work to date. The only cut from that album comes in the form of a remix in "Ich Tu Dir Weh (Fukkk Offf Remix)" (yes that's the name of the remix). So consider this more of a pre-2009 feature-set. There's plenty worth a purchase here, especially if you've never really delved into the Rammstein scene much before. My personal favorites are "Sonne", "Ich Will", "Mein Teil", and "Keine Lust", all of which came between 2001-2004. True fans and interested newcomers can get a good idea of where the band started and how they came to be where they are in recent years through this collection. I suggest looking into "Liebe" though, as it's everything awesome about Rammstein refined. Expand
