Rammstein - Ohne Dich

If I could understand German, I'd probably understad why Rammstein chose this as their 3rd single instead of the more hard hitting tracks like Reise! Reise! or Moskow. I would really like to see them release Los as a single too.

Anyways, this is a LONG video, going about 6 minutes, and features the band on a perilious mountain climbing expedition. As the band make the climb, suddenly vocalist Till's line snaps and he falls down a bit before landing on a flat slab, but his leg is broken! They then kinda waste about a minute with the dramatics as we see the band huddled together in a tent as a snowstorm rages outside and they try to nurse Till.
The next morning, with injured member and all, the continue the climb and reach the top triumphantly in a touching moment, with them viewing the sunset to end the video.

I love Rammstein videos, but this is probably the most boring one I've seen since Mutter, and the fact that it goes long doesn't help much either. They definately could do better as they have an album full of great songs they could make videos for.
Video Rating: **
