Hardly "The Best Of" Christian Death
(1 out of 5 stars)
"Cleopatra has once again released a mediochre collection of songs written by Rozz Williams. The original tracks are timeless and brilliant (as always), but Spahn Ranch has completely destroyed one of the most touching pieces of music ever written (Cervix Couch), and The Mission UK's minimal industrial/techno treatment of Spiritual Cramp just sounds silly. Laibach's reworking of The Angels is one of the few mixes that actually works, giving the song a middle eastern feel while keeping the integrity of the original. Bottom line: after helping, along with Valor, to drive Rozz insane and ultimately to his early grave, they are continuing to use his name (and genius) to line their pockets with below average releases."
Cleopatra records will do anything to make a buck.

"You don't put remixes on a "best of" compilation. You just don't. Plus, you don't put songs that don't belong on a "best of" compilation on a "best of" compilation. Whoever threw this thing together was blatantly and insipidly trying to make money off of Rozz's tragic suicide.
Yes, I understand that the troglodyte known as Valor holds rights to "Ashes" and "Catastrophe Ballet," which is EXACTLY why this CD should never have been produced. Without songs from those two albums, you can't have a best of Christian Death. It just isn't possible.
Rozz Williams was a genius. Skip this crap and buy the actual albums - in particular, "Catastrophe Ballet," "Ashes," and "Only Theatre of Pain" - you won't be disappointed, as almost every song is good."
"Best" is up for review, but a #1 place to start

"This CD is a fantastic place to start if your new to Christian Death. It covers alot of great material and from start to finish theres nothing to skip by.
There seems to be alot of talk about if it's the "Best of" or not but this is all relative to the listener and honestly you really cant go wrong with this CD if you want to explore the flavor or Christian Death.
This is definitely just a start though, Rozz's work with Christian Death along with all of his other releases (solo, shadow project etc.) are pretty vast but all recommended.
In short, definitely get this if your exploring Rozz's works but keep in mind "Best" is a relative word and you may find alot better out there."
