most bands hope to make one big "hit" single in their careers, or at least a decent record. this record contains 3 stone cold classics that still kick unbelievable ass 25 years later, in my mind qualifying this as a pure dance music masterpiece....funny, I thought "Join in the Chant" was the weirdest thing I had ever heard when I was 13, boring and annoying yet also strangely hypnotic and irresistible. now I see it as the visionary mix of pop, minimal synth and punk that it is. Murderous and Let Your Body Learn still fill my veins with brimming vitality and energy.

This LP is FANTASTIC! True powerful and adrenalinic EBM! Nitzer Ebb were among the best electronics outfits of the late 1980s, and "That Total Age" is sure their masterpiece. This is angry and epic electronic music played with raw punk attitude (in a word, EBM). VNV Nation? Hocico? Yeah, yeah, of course...
