EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Nov 16, 2004; Lead Performance: Rammstein

Best known for the 1998 single ''Du Hast,'' the infamous German imports return with 11 more anthems of the apocalypse that rarely diverge from their formula of grind-thrash-grind and predictable choral interludes. But given the eviscerating force of Reise, Reise's songs, it's almost impossible to dismiss their unabashed monotony. Almost. Except for the industrial-meets-blues groove of acoustic toe-tapper ''Los'' and the t.A.T.u.-covering-Ministry appeal of ''Moskau,'' Rammstein's newest plods along as a tedious exercise in darkwave dullness.
