Containing the almighty industrial anthem "Psyche-Out," 99% is a hallmark of industrial music. It's an electronic call to arms, yet it has a quieter, more subversive energy than most industrial music. Meat Beat Manifesto always have something to say, and they're great at subliminally planting their message in your brain while blistering your feet with infectious, hip-hop-influenced grooves. If there were ever a testimonial that electronic music can be timeless, this CD is it. --Beth Bessmer

"Think of what else was out during the time this album was cut. It still sounds better than most out there today. This band shines live. You MUST see their live show."
An Industrial Classic

"My purchase of this album was to replace my old copy which I originally got in the early 90's but which got worn out (!)
Meat Beat Manifesto typify the best Industrial has to offer - gritty, listenable beats and lyrics that demonstrate an intelligent, if cynical, perspective on modern culture and consumerism.
99% isn't as polished as, and the messages are a lot more sketchy than those on, the later "Satyricon" (which is truly a monumental album), however for those of us that like catchy industrial music which keeps your mind surfing on the edge of the subversive, you couldn't ask for better.
Helter Skelter/Dogstar Man is best enjoyed on an empty dancefloor at 2am in the morning in your local alternative club."
100% Solid blend of Techno, Funk, Industrial & Hip-hop!

"They've been around, and here's one of the brightest beginnings for this very influential band. "Psyche Out" on this release, it jams from the get-go through the end. My first Meat Beat Manifesto album was actually Satyricon (still my favorite)and here I can see the roots of that album begin to blossom.The only slight disappointment is the sound QUALITY of the CD. I'm not sure why, but the album sounds a bit flat & distorted (like comparing mp3s to true wav files). If you have a forgiving ear that doesn't notice the difference between a song off of the radio vs a CD, then it won't matter. This is a jem worth getting! Highlights are "Now," "Psyche Out," and "Deviate." They've got some soul for a bunch of white boys."
