So far the concensus is that this is better than the last album, and I'd agree. The only songs I go back to on the last album are Radio and Deutschland while this one has more memorable tracks for sure.
The guitars definitely sound more up on this album at least. But it sounds like Paul's Sansamp is mixed higher on this album. Like I said earlier, the guitar tones remind me of Herzeleid.It’s somewhere in the middle for me right now, gotta give it a few spins. The last two albums were like this also. The production on these albums just isn’t as “in your face” as the past albums. The tone is always fantastic on the guitars, but they sit way back compared to reise reise and rosenrot and before.
Richard has been a huge fan of fuzz pedals in the passed few years. Dude was hyping the Gamechanger Plasma like crazy. You can hear it on the fuzzy parts during Sex on the last Rammstein album and I THINK there's a couple of parts on the last 2 Emigrate albums as well.The guitars on Meine Tränen have something fuzzy going on, sounds pretty cool.
Herzeleid and Sehnsucht: Dancy industrial metalI never understood Rammstein to be honest with you guys. Always sounded like industrial porno music, granted I haven't listened to much. Someone give me the 411, where to start?
