KMFDM's eighth studio album, and just barely their second best, the only thing that makes this album slightly of less quality than "Nihl" is the fact that old bandmate and collaborator Raymond Watts had once again departed from the fold. This doesn't say much bad about the album though, still easily their second best effort, and of equal production quality as Nihil (they easily both could've been a double album), there is even a few standout tracks that really stand out in general even in their entire catalog, tracks like "Dogma" showing that even after eight albums, KMFDM could still come up with an original approach to writing a track that would catch fans off guard. Same goes for this album as Nihil, each song is worth listening to and counts, so almost no point in dissecting them. At this point they had their sound down to a science. It's also worth mentioning that Sasha has said before that this was in his opinion the best KMFDM album, or at least his favorite. Listen and enjoy!

My favorite album of all time, and yes, I'd say it's better than "Nihil" (their breakout) by a hair. This album is like an experimental warzone. There is SO much experimentation throughout this album with Jazz, female vocals, various objects used during recording (see liner notes), that it pretty much makes a genre all by itself.

Every track on this album is perfect. From the ground shaking "Son of a Gun", to the scarily prophetic "Dogma" and the almost war-like feeling of "Power", this album delivers and it delivers every time. If you have a sound system, your ass WILL be blown away if the bass is pumped up. This album is one of their heaviest.

The "secret" ending of this album is hilarious with some dirty poetry being read, although I don't know WHO is reading it. It's a nice touch to top off the best album of all time.
