"Sleazy Punky Industrial is the only way to describe this album. Thrill Kill Kult seem to be the only ones left to carry the torch of the old funky "Chicago sound" since Die Warzau went MIA, Revolting Cocks got put on the back burner, and the members of Ministry managed to each get their copies of Black Sabbath Vol 4 stuck in their cd players.
As with most Thrill Kill albums, it's the faster songs which are the most effective. Fangs of Love, Sexy Sucker, and Lucifer's flowers are all guaranteed to pull you off the couch at any industrial club (C'mon, the damn thing reeks of clove cigarettes and cheap beer anyway; you don't want to be sitting there all night.) This is their most consistent album in years, and it shows that there's still fun to be had in a genre that's known for taking itself waaaaaaay too seriously..."

"On Crime for All Seasons, TKK took a 180 turn after Holiday, moving away from the "go go" beats and 50s-schtick. Here, TKK showcases their earlier Wax Trax style mixed in with their lighter, dancier material. Which I thought was no small feat, considering how worlds apart some of their albums are.Fangs of Love starts off the album with a a fast, punky groove (much like After the Flesh from the Crow). Dope Doll Jungle has a heavy industrial edge with Groovie sneering in over great keyboard drones. Then Sexy Sucker puts a techno-laced beat and synth work over a warped guitar line. Great vocals on this one. Blonds is another raw punky song, while Lucifer's Flowers takes the cake by adding a classic-style TKK bass line over erie keyboards, nice female backing vocals, and Groovie tellin' it like it is. Great song and the highlight of the album. Yesterdays Void, Feel the Bite, and The Twilight Web are also excellent, while Bottomless Pit feels a little forced, with an erratic techno beat, but a catchy song nonetheless.The group expertly incorporates a variety of styles on one short album. While it may make for a little uneven feel, I think it works with the content - which is the same as every TKK album (sex, drugs, death, wayard characters, etc)."
It's sexy, sucker.

""Crime For All Seasons" is an album that really is pretty good, and it's typical for them, BUT, compared to their other stuff is only so-so. I feel like every other album they've released is a classic in some way or another, just not this one. Again though, still a good listen, and I do enjoy it when it's played. If you're looking for your first taste of "MLWTTKK", check out "I See Good Spirits And I See Bad Spirits", "Confessions Of A Knife", or "Sexplosion" first."
