This DVD and mixed accompanying CD are SLICK! One of the better products I bought during this phase in music in my life. The amount of varied creativity coming from the artists on the DVD was such a breath of fresh air during this time ... See full review

I'm curious where others have found the Midnight in A Perfect World (Warrior Mix) that floats around online. Any one have a clue? I've only seen it in "DJ Shadow: The Ultimate Collection."

posted a review of The Knife In Collaboration With Mt. Sims* And Planningtorock - Tomorrow, In A Year. over 7 years ago
What can I say about this highly experimental opera/electronic soundscapes recording? It was very moody, and it sounded more like a nature walk or a documentary on a rare bird that plays synthesizers underground. In an age where techno "artists" boast ... See full review
posted a review of Apoptygma Berzerk - Harmonizer. over 8 years ago
Boy, I don't see a deeper side to this album at all. It might be more personal, but it does not make it better than their past material. 'Until the End of the World' and 'Unicorn' were accepted in goth clubs and 'Unicorn' had a decent female vocalist ... See full review
posted a review of :wumpscut:. over 8 years ago
Probably the best industrial artist you'll ever hear in a club, and he doesn't even play live. Such a shame. Well, the review by perigoso says it all: Rudy started playing with experimental heavy metal mixed with polar-opposite melodies and brutal ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Veromon. over 11 years ago
The second in the Ant-Zen official compilations, Veromen is taking a step away from the street-status artwise, it seems. The ominous cover of a powerbox-looking device, which holds the inspiration for all of these artists, drives the point across that ... See full review
posted a review of Music For Flagellants - Scourge. over 11 years ago
As far as experimentation is concerned, it is a great release by concept alone. As far as music is concerned, it's some of the worst music to leave on, as far as tracks go.

The two tracks fill entire sides of the cassette it was released on. The two ... See full review
posted a review of Various - Men-An-Tol. over 11 years ago
After listening to this release for the first time, I have to remind myself about what the origins of rhythmic noise were doing for the standard club beats we hear in underground culture now in 2007. 14 years after the creation of these mutilated beats ... See full review

If ever there was art for the ears, this 7" would be standing alone like an angry-looking installation piece. A curious album for any collector, this release is a puzzler. Am I listening to someone rustling amongst leaves? Am I listening to primal, ... See full review
posted a review of Ab Ovo - Mouvements. over 11 years ago
Ab Ovo has blown me away by their release of Mouvements. They've put together great albums such as this but never in this way of creating old classical movements out of ambient programming. I really was taken away while listening to this album to some ... See full review
posted a review of Mannequin. over 11 years ago
It surprises me that Mannequin were only able to pull off that one great track that opened up the Party Monster Soundtrack. They had such a well-refined electro sound for one song, and then...nothing? It still remains a must-play track when going out ... See full review
posted a review of Ab Ovo - Empreintes. over 11 years ago
This is the first time I sat down and analyzed Ab Ovo's records (I only own Empreintes and MOuvements, so the earlier material I will have to cover later). The best way to describe their sound on this album is "spacey channeling of insect-driven ... See full review
posted a review of The Future Sound Of London - We Have Explosive. over 11 years ago
A great collection and celebration of this fine single, "We Have Explosive" was my introductory song to the ever-changed world of FSOL, but this single could have been a little more structured (or varied) with its remixes than what it had to offer. All ... See full review
posted a review of The Future Sound Of London - Lifeforms. over 11 years ago
My introduction the FSOL was a different sound entirely (with the great noise-electro track "We Have Explosive") than what this album had to offer. In 1994, when more and more electronic acts were throwing together cheap ripoff music of one another, ... See full review
posted a review of Imminent · Synapscape - The Incredible Three. over 12 years ago
Another collaboration between Imminent and Synapscape, this three-track whirlwind of an idea starts with standard power-noise trademarks (which both parties on this disk have), and ends on a wash of an idea to make an American, old-west-sounding track ... See full review
posted a review of Gail Greenwood. over 12 years ago
One of the most intense female bass players ever, Greenwood had a Sid Vicious stance onstage and never stopped chugging away at the bass. I was fortunate to see her play with L7 for their opening gig for Marilyn Manson, and her presence was much enjoyed ... See full review
posted a review of Stone Temple Pilots - Core. over 12 years ago
A classic album from these guys during the age of grunge. This was my first ever CD purchased, and it was a great choice. From hits like Plush, Sex Type Thing, Creep, Crackerman, and Dead & Bloated, who can go wrong? Weiland certainly was more the ... See full review
posted a review of Subhumans - The Day The Country Died. over 12 years ago
A decent release for this band. I thought the ideas got a little stretched at times, which made me give this album a 3/5 stars. There were a considerable amount of great tracks (like Mickey Mouse is Dead, Dying World, and Big Brother). Now if they ... See full review
posted a review of Subhumans - EP-LP. over 12 years ago
This album was OK. It didn't have the complete and put-together sound like a regular Subhumans release/album. The songs didn't flow like I like, and therefore, the album suffered from a lot of that, IMO. I love Evolution, Work Experience, and Religious ... See full review
posted a review of Staind - Dysfunction. over 12 years ago
Wow, I don't know what I was thinking picking up this CD. They had a few great songs on the CD (tracks 4-6 only, with an alright secret song), but the rest all sounded the same and doesn't deserve a second listen, IMO. But that's nu metal for ya. Plus ... See full review
posted a review of Stabbing Westward - Wither Blister Burn + Peel. over 12 years ago
I came across this album while MTV was still confused as to what the industrial rock craze was with the teenagers of the time. MTV was showing videos for Shame and What Do I Have To Do (one of the first emo tracks...it's gotta be), and I, being a huge ... See full review
posted a review of Soundgarden - Superunknown. over 12 years ago
One of my first CDs, I love the memories of this purchase (frankly, when my father read the lyrics of Kickstand and Black Hole Sun to me as a warning to what I bought..damn over-sensetive parents). Anyways, the whole album really shines and changes ... See full review
posted a review of Sonic Youth - Experimental Jet Set, Trash And No Star. over 12 years ago
IMO, this album (along with Goo, Daydream Nation, and Dirty) started my love for the grunge and experimental, messed-up sound of Sonic Youth. This was the first CD I picked up by them (used with a thrashed booklet and writing all over the inside) and it ... See full review
posted a review of PIL* - That What Is Not. over 12 years ago
This is the only real PIL CD I own. I haven't figured out what era I ever liked of them (mostly because they were always changing with the seasons), but this CD is pretty solid. I liked 7 of the 10 songs on it; the ones I didn't care for were the ... See full review
posted a review of Statemachine - Breakdown. over 12 years ago
I got this CD after hearing Thermal Noise (a remix apparently) on the Cyberlab 2xCD comp they were on. I totally wish they would've used that mix for the album, but alas...It was a decent album. Nothing I hadn't heard before, but they had respectable ... See full review
posted a review of Synth-Etik - Dimensional Construct. over 12 years ago
A very original-concept for rhytmic noise music, IMO: using synthesizers only to make your beats, and manipulating them on the fly, it seems. A very interesting CD, but I found a lot of tracks a little off the point and crazily trying to find the focus ... See full review
posted a review of Suicide Commando - Mindstrip. over 12 years ago
A great, original band makes this disc, which features a few too many of the same sounding songs, IMO. Everyone loves Hell Raiser in the clubs (the 2nd track, which has a more popular remix by VNV Nation on the single CD-R), but the fact is that SC just ... See full review
posted a review of Arch Enemy - Anthems Of Rebellion. over 12 years ago
i am a very casual listener to death metal or even thrash metal, but I got sucked in by the novelty of having a female artist such as angela singing her lungs out the way only she does. i picked this up after hearing the single "we will rise" and i ... See full review
posted a review of Chicks On Speed - The Re-Releases Of The Un-Releases. over 12 years ago
This album is the first I ever owned of COS. Personally, I love every second of the album. I wish more greatest hits collections were produced in the same manner (with splices of dialogue and abstract sounds in between songs). It's creative, danceable ... See full review

Takes me back to the video of Jay Kay on the moving floor for "Virtual Insanity" and the VMA performance... (sigh)

Well, this band sure did release more CD before this (probably their most popular of their CDs) acid jazzy band hit the populace. (what ... See full review
posted a review of Jackie O Motherfucker - Change. over 12 years ago
This CD did not exactly sell me on jackie o motherfucker. I got sucked in by the band's name (had to hear what the hell a band named that could produce), and wish I hadn't because I didn't end up liking this disc really at all. Unless you COMPLETELY ... See full review

Everytime I pop this CD in, I remember when I was a vnv nation fan, listening to the remix by ivory frequency of genesis, and getting so pumped by the crazy levels that I.f.'s sound takes the music to. It's sad to see not much come from this guy after ... See full review
posted a review of Information Society - Information Society. over 12 years ago
I got this album a little late of the game, and being a huge fan of Depeche Mode and the like, one cannot see InfoSoc as a "great" band, but I will say that this album was way ahead of its time. The hit "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)" should be on ... See full review
posted a review of Hanin Elias - Future Noir. over 12 years ago
After hearing the great Atari Teenage Riot stuff, this comes along and puts a softer, weaker, more confused side to Hanin Elias' personality. An interesting take on the future of elecronic music and the image of "noir" and goth/industrial types (what I ... See full review

It's gotta be hard for Hypno to sell so many of there previous albums, and then come to this. This boxset was like buying totally crappy cereal with pretty interesting prizes inside; I didn't like half the tracks on either CD, and this really didn't ... See full review

Entertaining while being dumb, Guttermouth released this disc around the time of Rancid and others getting off the ground with their MTV hits and so forth. They prooved to be an interesting alternative to smart, political punk by displaying each others' ... See full review
posted a review of GusGus - This Is Normal. over 12 years ago
I got this CD a while back in the late 90's, and it holds up pretty well with all the pop and programming that's been around since then. The album tries to mirror apollo four fourty's "blue" album (IMO) and tries to utilize lyrics and tone like Pulp. ... See full review
posted a review of Groove Armada - Vertigo. over 12 years ago
Looking back on this album, Groove Armada had kind of an unlikely existence with bacnds like Moby and Crystal Method at their doorstep waiting to feed them ideas. But they strived and came up with their own unique, chill version of electronica at the ... See full review

I actually agree with mrdominic. when "50" was first in tracks (that I've ever heard), he was actually good (in a Notorious BIG song/remix). his flow was actually on target and he had a message...a rather bland message, but still a message. and now, ... See full review
posted a review of Gridlock - Further. over 12 years ago
I own this CD and "Formless," and I liked this one much more. I have a copy of their earlier works somewhere, and I like how they lost the vocals, got into the nitty gritty and let loose (between diddling on a piano) on a lot of the songs here. I like ... See full review
posted a review of Gridlock - Formless. over 12 years ago
I enjoyed a good deal of the tracks, but most of the tracks blended so much together that I merely lost interest. About 6 of the 15 tracks I really got into. After that, it sounded like filler, I gotta say. I only own "Further" other than this album, ... See full review
posted a review of Live. over 12 years ago
In the 90's, you couldn't switch on mtv without seeing a new alternative rock group on the tube, and this band was more than just another band. They embraced the craziness of bands of the time (nirvana, jane's addiction, primus, et al), but as a twist, ... See full review
posted a review of Ministry. over 12 years ago
I will continue to recommend this band to new people just starting to listen to industrial. Even if the rock element is left-of-snob for the industrial crowd, Alain J. has the brashish vocals (great design on the vocals BTW), craziest, hardest drums ... See full review

OK, Marilyn has a great head on his shoulders, he does, but what he lacks is tact in his progressive confusion which is his artwork, lifestyle, and messages. His lyrics, often naive and filled with ridiculous plays-on-words to act as intellectual ... See full review
