as you might notice from my other reviews i have a bee in the bonnet about fonts on reissues. ;) since the sleeve design was recreated and not just reprinted clone guys didn't quite nail it with the font, it is similar but not the same (the original one ... See full review

and if you could understand the lyrics, you'd just burst in tears!

horrible artwork, text is re-typed with generic arial font, looks way more bootleg than the bootleg itself. GREAT sound though.

this pressing has nasty half second gaps between tracks which a) reveals its digital source and b) irritates af. wonder if another version has the same glitches.

the pressing to go for because of Stella spreading over the entire side (and it's 45rpm !!)

this album capturing the band at the peak of their powers (both in studio and on stage, saw them live in 1996 and it was mindblowing, lifechanging experience) deserves a PROPER double LP release, this one is mastered too quiet and muffled, 25+ minutes of ... See full review

the front cover is actually a low-resolution bitmap image scaled up to 12" size with every pixel being visible
while everything else about this reissue is absolutely fine this is really irritating: what is seen can not be unseen

one of THE electronic body music albums, very unique sounding. mixing ebm beats with weird vocals, minimal arrangements and adding that trademark french twist, philippe fichot is basically doing the same thing in 1991 that le syndicat electronique ... See full review

inspired by the likes of TG, SPK and most apparently Cabaret Voltaire (their classic trio phase), this swedish trio is an absolute must if you're into real industrial music. listening to these barking and growling vocals, bass-guitar riffs and distorted ... See full review

absolutely fantastic synth programming on this one. unlike many other so called "minimal synth" acts who mostly used to run a disco preset on a drum machine, sync it to a synth performing some really simple bassline, splash a few noise hits here and ... See full review

what is really lame about this re-release is its horrible artwork! i don't know who came up with the idea of re-designing that beautiful handpainted picture of an aviator using cheap computer vector graphics (clipart stylee) and also standard windows ... See full review

without a doubt this is a great retrospective of Carlos Peron's early years, powerfully pressed, wonderfully designed and all... but!... if you're desperately searching for a piece of vinyl with that haunting and slightly extended version of Nothing Is ... See full review

This is a mile-stone in the recent "minimal wave" revival, a real bible (holy grail, whatever) for the collectors. You could hardly find a better introduction to "Electro, Synth-Pop, Minimal" genres than this beautiful Genetic Music box set compiled by ... See full review

A truly outstanding album from Heiner Gehring who sadly passed away in 2004. This is a fairly odd mixture of harsh power electronics and minimal elektro heavily based on lo-fi casio-like sounds and trashy 8-bit blips and blops. You might have a feeling ... See full review

Although it was released at the belated peak of the electroclash hype in russia (2003), the album has absolutely nothing to do with that. This is mostly sensual yet dancey and sometimes playful electro pop music with a very soft "minimal" touch and ... See full review

as said before, A-side sounds really very inspired by John Carpenter when played on 45 RPM, but when it is played on 33 RPM, as stated on the label, it gets way more spooky. :) also there is an excellent remix by Franz Falckenhaus on the B-side which ... See full review

nice electro/ebm hybrid heavily based on FM synths, very robotic sounding.
