"Of me being a real gothic! Rosetta Stone are indeed still going strong as a band, still sounding great. This CD is a short but sweet collection of their singles from around 1991-1992 and the b-sides. ADRENALINE even got daytime mainstream radio play and almost hit the top 40 in the UK at the time, when considering most adolescents were feeling fake-suicidal along to the likes of Nirvana and Soundgarden and not bothering with goth was a damn fine achievement! This track is pure Sisters of Mercy mixed with the industrial dance techno of Cassandra Complex and Front 242, an inspired combination. THE WITCH is a rocky cover of an old 1970 hit by THE RATTLES, COME HELL OR HIGH WATER reeks of The Mission, but who cares? These guys rock big time! Check it out, all you goths (or has-beens like me)iof all ages!"
One of the most solid CDs

"Few CDs have such a high percentage of good songs. Do they sound like the Sisters? I guess in a way, but the music is different and so is the subject matter. Do they sound like the Mission? No, this CD has 8 really good songs on it, and I believe the Mission only have about 3 good songs all together. This is goth at its poppiest. All of the songs are catchy with grooving bass lines and thrashing drum machines. Every song except Shadow and Forevermore is incredibly good, and even the two track I mentioned aren't bad.
A warning to people just getting into Rosetta Stone. Just because you like the material on this CD and other early releases, doesn't mean that you will like any of their new stuff. The band made a complete 180 and started making repetitive industrial music with no melody and filtered lyrics. Just a warning."
Adreneline, Adrenochrome...you get the idea

"Rosetta Stone took a sharp turn a while back and headed into more industrial material with less memorable songs. However, back in 1993 they sounded like The Sisters when the real Sisters were in limbo.For the most part though, it's not obnoxious. There are elements of the Sisters everywhere, yet the Stone create their own energy on songs like Adrenaline and The Witch that are still very catchy, dark and fun. There are no overly Eldritch lyrics. The vocals are deep, the sound is shiny, there's enough variation to keep it fresh. Think Hussey Sisters with some industrial updates and you're getting there."
