Wax Trax my ass . Yes i know about the Peter Hope and Acid Horse projects . However, you wanna know why you never heard the cabs name mentioned or even acknowledgd 99.9% of the time during that whole "industrial music"hey-day ? Because then everyone else would have started an industrial band too and copied/ripped off EVERYTHING the cabs had done. To be fair though the actual Wax Trax record store , lincoln avenue Chicago ,was awesome!

The best album by Cabaret Voltaire by far and one of the best electronic music albums by anyone ever IMHO. The CD has 2 "bonus" tracks added at the end that appear on 1985's Drinking Gasoline album-length EP which is nice (I guess) but it really doesn't follow the flow of the rest of the album.

Horrible remaster. Took most of the bass out. Look for the original release instead.

Harsher and heavier than people give it credit for: Mallinder's rasps and croaks a lot of his vocals, the beats are unrelentingly tough and clattering while scorched synths and disembodied samples ricochet inside the mix like shrapnel. That they manage to wrest some semblance of vaguely accessible song-writing out of this monster is a marvel, as melodies chatter along with all the airy charm of a neon sign in a bad neighbourhood. Charles Manson murmurs some stuff between tracks and the whole thing rumbles along in a generally disconcerting way. Mutant cyber funk at its best, the last great industrial-strength album by the Cabs before they explored dreamy electronica.

Great album from Cabaret Voltaire that combines their distinct blend of acidy synth lines and spring-loaded percussion with obscure samples of televangilists, Charles Manson, and religious movies to jab at the heart of American idealism.

"Motion Rotation" is the standout track by way of being the most accessible, but I love the sweeping lonliness of "The Arm of the Lord."
