I just picked up a copy, but the songs on the CD are the Hanzel und Gretyl "Uber Alles" album. Anyone interested in a super rare manufacturing error?

Back again is the Metropolis sampler at Hot Topic, and back again are its limitations. The same artists appear year after year (KMFDM is on this CD even though they didn't even have a studio album in 2003, honestly there is a such thing as a bit too much KMFDM), great artists though they are. The artist selection however is not as saddening as the song collection; for most artists, there are FAR better songs out there in 2003 to add to the sampler, the most obvious being Front 242- come on, Triple-X Girlfriend? And they didn't even get the title right...

The one exceptional song that I simply could not get enough of when I bought this sampler was Deliver Us From Evil, possibly the best Suicide Commando song I've heard to date. The song is an exclusive track, which, really, you need more of on a sampler.

Other than that, Monochrome, Attak/Reload, and Pretty Toy, the selection is lackluster (Bunnydrums?), yet expected from the annual budget Metropolis sampler.
