KMFDM's second effort, far more accessible than their first album, but far from what they were known for later in their career. This is the centerpiece to the early Wax Trax! singles, and could be arguably considered the definitive Wax Trax! era album, as the tracks all have that consistent fat, heavy, and slightly overdriven rhythmic low tech sampler sound going on with them that appears on all the early Wax Trax singles. The first 3 tracks are the best, by far, sadly. KMFDM kind of put everything out up front, and didn't leave much for the rest of the album, you can hear still at this point they were trying to get the art of making albums down a bit better, which is why so many opt to just pick up the singles from this era, and skip the albums, still each track does flow well into the next, and all the tracks feel well produced, with the aid of Adrian Sherwood (who also worked on the contemporary singles from the same era). The album title can be a bit confusing as there is also a single of the same name, and since the single was one of the major songs from the album, it also doesn't help that the single is only missing one essential song from the album (No meat, no man), however, if your a fan of the early singles this one is worth giving a listen.
