"The genius minds behind Skinny Puppy and Front 242 combine thier talents in this hard to find masterpiece. Hmm, it's classified under Dance, DJ.... I'd take the stress off dance, really. Sounds more industrial with a touch of dance and traces of gohtic - perfect listening in just about any situation."
Innovative and intriguing, catchy, yet atmospheric, this alb

"Compiled from the albums Spell of Joy and Bite Release Bite plus songs from their three singles, "Not Now, Not Here" for example is pure dark dance, but commercial enough for Dave Gahan to sell his soul for. "Frantic" in contrast is purer industrial but still maintains a driving beat further in "Whats to be Done" has an atmospheric key board cloaked in goth's dark colors, while "Prisca" mixes in synthpop and "Soulspirit" could appear in KMFDM's songbook. Vocals range from compressed to untreated and even include some harmonies. Between the main songs, short sampled pieces ranging from ambient to industrial somehow tie it all together. If Machine Bites sounds like a garbled mess, you've missed the point. The Fair Sex manage to stretch across the electro field but never loose touch with their vision of dance rhythms and melodies. If you're unfamiliar with their name, join the club but something this good should not go unnoticed much longer. Innovative and intriguing, catchy, yet atmospheric, this album is a must."
The Fair Sex fails to leave much of an impression.

"I've got "Machine Bites" and I've listened to it several times, but it fails the leave me with a strong, lasting impression. The music was industrial with guitars, but not incredibly heavy guitars. The song "Casket Tower" seemed to be the only one that stuck out as being interesting enough to warrant more listening time. This album is a compilation of previously released material from their various older albums. Unfortunately, if this is a reliable cross-section of The Fair Sex's work, I find it rather disappointing. It's not bad, but it's down the spectrum from good..."
