A perfect example of a good maxi-single.
Instead of just getting other popular electro acts to put their name on the back of the CD cover, Bryan Erickson aka Velvet Acid Christ presents a small collection of vastly different takes on his two tracks "Fun With Drugs" and "Decypher".

Especially Decypher has gotten a really interesting treatment. The "Force = Authority" remix presents a light, upbeat dance/trance version, that is able to shake any dance floor into action, both within and outside of the EBM/industrial scene.
Luxt's "Serial Killer" mix changes the same track into an aggressive and dark electro track with an added harsh guitar riff, and more focus on the vocals. I like the original song, but both of these versions are a lot more interesting.

Fun With Drugs also got a more dance floor friendly update through the Amphetamine mix, which is not that different, but in my opinion better than the album version.

The Fun With Knives album is great, but it's not complete without this appendix of alternative takes.
