"This album is perfect. The music complements Lunch's dark anger perfectly without drowning in pretention. Filled to the brim with variety but arranged in a way where you hardly notice! It amazes me that Suicide Ocean isn't more of a classic. Endless fall is a solid and passionate song. Some of the tracks highlight Lunch's Poetry, others are all about the music. What pleases me most is that this doens't fall into the trap of many spoken word artists gone song. Some of those efforts come out simply as attempts to make bad poetry more interesting. But Lydia Lunch puts in the effort and hits both ends. There is every emotion on this disc, the most prominant being disturbing. This is not happy go lucky, this is never funny. But unlike many night crawlers, Lydia is all human, never a novelty or cartoon. Never pretentious or exhausting. This is a writer who knows what she's doing and evidently her collaborators do to. This album as everything one could want, it's a great retrospective of this historic writer. Buy it and you won't have to buy another CD for months and months!"
