Disappointed. The video was great, but the song was so meh it hurt. Rammstein can do funny AND juvenile, but this is just juvenile. Rammlied is ok, but sounds like they were trying to copy the sound from their first album.
I like Pussy and I didn´t like Rammlied and my brother LOVES Pussy.

But I´m not a Rammstein fan, I only listen to one song while working out: Feuer frei!

So, maybe I'm crazy, but it seems to me like this is fake. Meaning, body doubles were used as "stunt cocks" for the band members. There were only a couple of really quick edits where we saw a penis and a man's face in the same frame and those looked like someone pasted a face on another man's body. Aside from the publicity implications of turning rock stars into porn stars for a music video, I think the more practical element of getting these guys to perform in front of a camera like porno pros would probably be unreasonable.

It looked awesome, but I think it's editing and camera tricks we're seeing, not the actual porno premiere of some German musicians.

So one of them isn't actually a transsexual? Mein Gott!

Err yeah, their heads are cgi'd on, and there could be some prosthetics involved too. Plus some porn stars. Easy

That's why it's genius. They make their most pop sounding song ever, yet tack on lyrics and make a video that pretty much guarantees nobody on TV or radio plays it. I think it's hilarious.

So...

The album got leaked.

yeah i just clicked through it listening to about 30 seconds a song. not enough to judge the album but it's definitely different. some magazine that got to listen to the album early said it was like going back to Sehnsucht. that is not true from what i heard... i have a feeling this is going to be a love it/hate it album for most people.

limited addition has 4 more songs so ill pass final judgement after hearing that version.

:lol :lol :lol
What bullshit.... and I say that as someone that doesnt like Sehnsucht at all.
Im listening to the full album right now and Liebe ist fur alle da is more like a refinement of Rosenrot (Rosenrot had a couple unpolished stinkers, the new album makes it seem like an amateur production) with a dash of Herzeloid. It's quite good. What's more, the two singles, Rammlied and Pussy, are probably the worst songs on the album, it's really taking me by surprise; anyone that loved Reise Reise is going to enjoy this album.
I'm certainly going to give it a lot of playtime with Forza Motorsport 3.

I hated both Reise Reise and Rosenrot (they had like 4 decent songs in total), but the new one is surprisingly awesome. Not as good as their first two albums, but about on par with Mutter IMO. Waidmanns Heil is sweet.
 
After listening to it a few times today, I can say that this is probably my favorite Rammstein album in years. Since Mutter, basically. Forget Pussy, it's an obvious "made to be a single" song. The rest of the album is completely brilliant. Haifisch, Fruhling in Paris, Waidmanns Heil, Mehr...so many good songs. Pussy, Roter Sand, and Buckstabu are basically the only "weak" songs on the entire album, and even they aren't THAT bad (except maybe Roter Sand...).

But yeah, ace album. Pussy lowered my expectations for the album drastically, but it's definitely awesome.
 
Got the album today, one play through so far.

Excellent, I agree with the sentiment that is feels very polished, very tight. Pussy feels totally out of place but other than that good stuff.

It's like a lovely mix of herzeleid, mutter with an awful lot of refinement and polish musically.
 
I just got my copy today and so far I'm really impressed. This may be my favorite album yet, it has a very nice feel to it.

Edit: I agree the song Pussy is completely out of place. Kind of disrupts the whole flow.
