amarcord - Rastlose Liebe (Restless Love)

Whoa. Straight 5s on every category, including the track list... as far as I know, that's a first. All the more impressive considering how many songs there are. Wow.

It is indeed an amazing album (as you could tell by my and the other reviews).

I think you are right about this being a first. In this thread, viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3685&start=165, Seth says that only two albums have gotten straight 5s on their track list: Soundproof (MIT Logarhythms) and Twenty For One (Cadence).

http://www.rarb.org/reviews/480.html

Neither one got straight 5s in the overall scores (although Twenty For One was dang close). Therefore, it seems Rastlose Liebe is in fact the first album to get straight 5s on tracks and also straight 5s on overall score.

This is an amazing album. I received it in the mail yesterday and have been playing it for the past twenty-four hours in utter awe that these five men could blend so perfectly. Every detail on every song seems perfectly wrought.

My least favorite form of vocal music is German lieder, so I took a real chance in buying this album based solely on the steller RARB scores, and I'm glad that I did.
