I believe the reason there's no 242 is because Sony owned the rights to their back catalog material at the time.

@ fyuw4cher They weren't allowed to use any material by Front242 as a result of some licensing issues after wax trax went bankrupt. The Black Box was put out by TVT after they purchased Wax Trax. I would assume that Play It Again Sam records owned the rights to the 242 catalog, as they were in a partnership with Wax Trax.

I never get sick of listening to this excellent collection of early industrial and raunchy favorites. One thing I can't figure out is how they can devote 6 of the 78 pages to Front 242, and go so far as to state that "Front X Front" is their best selling release to date, yet neglect to include them on any of the three discs.
