This album is the first I ever owned of COS. Personally, I love every second of the album. I wish more greatest hits collections were produced in the same manner (with splices of dialogue and abstract sounds in between songs). It's creative, danceable music and makes higher-budget projects look like a joke after they are completed when compared to this band of crazy, art-women. Excellent job. Can't wait for more from them.

To add to the reviewer's comment above...I to am not a fan of Larry Tee myself...to sum it up, he pretty much exploited the sound of electro/new wave...no wonder Richie Hawtin changed his appearance.

...But anyway..."The Re-Releases of The Unreleases"...it's Chicks On Speed under a microscope, literally in audio sense...part retrospect of their very first bundle of releases, and the bits and pieces of studio work (some of it possibly from live performances) jointed together in a wild set that never really rests for any breaks at all...you will hear some of the samples from "...Will Save Us All" were actually parts of songs that were not used on that debut...and I find a lot of the stuff that wasn't used just as good, or even better than what ended up on "...Will Save Us All". The unreleased tracks are bolder, completely twisted, and holds more of an edgey sound then what was on the album...it's kinda hard to see why these tracks were not used in the first place...but would easily explain why this release followed so abruptly.

Everything you will find here...totally unpredicted and all over the place...from retro-electro, to Alec Empire techno/punk/hardcore...to Bad Boy Bill hardhouse...even artsy ambience house and synthetic distortion. A Must have for just about any electronica audiophile.

Don't let these girls fool you...their not as pretentious as they appear to be.

This album is awesome!!! an incredible expression of hardcore irony! Randomness thrown together in electronic beats, its completly awesome! Great dance songs and great experimental type stuff. They are 3 girls who met in Munich, Germany in art school and decided to make an art project with music and fashion. The Media caught on and now they are touring around the world. I have had the privilage to see Chicks On Speed at the Fillmore in San Fransisco, California. They were a part of the Electroclash 2002 tour.
The Electroclash tour is a disgrace! Larry Tee is the producer and he is a raving idiot. He wants electronic music to become mainstream, if i knew that i would have booed him off stage. Beyond his stupidity, Chicks On Speed are FAB-U-LOUS! You'll want to never stop dancing! I promise you! These are the songs for a future generation!
