Made in Germany: 1995-2011 - Very Good, Based on 4 Critics

Consequence of Sound - 72
Based on rating B

Beyond the 2005 sleeper that was Rosenrot, Rammstein returned to prominence with 2009’s single-driven masterwork, Liebe Ist Für Alle Da. By this point, the industrial metal band notorious for elaborate live pyrotechnics had not performed in the United States for over a decade, which translated, unsurprisingly, to selling out a winter gig at Madison Square Garden in only a couple of hours. Now, 16 years onward, Rammstein has opted to compile a “best of” album, including a two-disc deluxe edition containing 17 star-studded remixes.

PopMatters - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Made in Germany 1995-2011, provides a career spanning retrospective of one of the most unique, incendiary and satirical bands to ever exist. Over the course of almost two decades, Rammstein have established themselves as a band capable of engaging the senses. The Teutonic warriors have also proven more than adept at stretching public perception of what is deemed appropriate; sometimes crossing the line of good taste.

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

With a title that sums up their admirable refusal to pander to English-speaking audiences, MADE IN GERMANY: 1995-2011 celebrates the 16-year career of Neue Deutsche Härte outfit Rammstein, one of the few European rock bands to make any impression in both the U.K. and U.S. Spanning their six studio albums, from the synth-heavy theatrics of "Du Riechst So Gut" (from 1995 debut HERZELEID) to the glam-tinged vaudeville of "Haifisch" (from 2009's LIEBE IST FÜR ALLE DA ), alongside a brand new recording ("Mein Land"), the 16-track collection certainly justifies their rather provocative reputation.

Austin Chronicle
Their review was generally favourable

A Krautrock tease sweeping in 1997 single "Engle" ["Angel"], the first battle cry on this best-of won't prepare non-Rammsteinians for the cabaret bombast that follows. This is not your Danzig's "Mutter," though the following "Pussy" makes a case for the Misfit. The gargantuan lumber of "Mein Teil" struts the Berlin machine at its normal gait, laughing all the way to "Amerika" ("it's Coca-Cola, Wonder Bra").
