"Well, I wasn't sure this album would ever see the light of day. Their first studio creation in 5 years, alotta water's passed under the bridge. Whatta relief! This disc is sensational in every sense of the word. The production is seamless, the clarity of sound surrounds you. While still a little slim on the out-of-context, dialogue-bytes for my taste, there's more of 'em here than on "CrimeForAllSeasons". An element that I consider part of their definative signature.To me, THE REINCARNATION OF LUNA is TKK's most musically accomplished work. McCoy's instrumentation is impeccable, and references most of his strongest muses, namely goth/industrial, lounge/jazz, techno/disco, and cowpunk/metal! Mann's vocalizing is also taking some interesting new turns here. Variations abound. Just having seen them on tour, I can attest to the fact that the BombGangGirl featured on this record: Lady Cherrie Blue is as effective a singer as she is a dancer. Similar to Cinderella Pussy.The highlights here: "Hour Of Zero". Shockingly relaxed, but dark and cryptic. Mann's delivery is new, and refreshingly pure on this hip hop hybrid. Blue's soulsister backups are top notch here. Great melodies. Melodies!!!"Untouchable Class" takes up where "SexOnWheels" & "The Golden Strip" left off. Guitar-heavy bump&grind deluxe. Great nasty lyric."Temptation Serenade" and "Flesh Playhouse" are dansefloor anthems at TKK's kinetic best. Hypnotic and multi-coloured."Girl Without A Planet", and "Heelz Afire": Dark, sleazoid, lounge-lizard, extravaganzas. Symphonic in density, maudlin AND hysterical simultaneously!"Bettie" - Jazz in hells waiting room.A spectacular comeback, and consolidation of their strengths.Get THE REINCARNATION OF LUNA. You'll be glad you did."

"With the uncatagorizable TKK -- a band renowned for change and diversity -- each new release is met with a sense of excitement and uneasiness by the fans because they DON'T know what to expect. That's no different with the new album The Reincarnation of Luna; after all it's been 4 years since they released an album. The end result of this time off is a very polished album with a wide range of moods and styles. The first song "Radio Silicon" has an aggressive dark sound with a slight flavor of Chemical Brothers mixed in the noise. This is bound to throw new and old fans into frenzy at one of TKK's energetic live shows. From there it changes directions radically, you get Trip Hop, Funk, Salsa in form of the colorful "Heelz Afire", loungeish tunes, a Dance song that carries a faint Bladerunner sound, angry rock (with amusing lyrics like, "Why don't you just stop living"), and tranquil ambient. I know I'm inserting these songs into some categories here but that's because it's very difficult to describe many of them. TKK has their own way of doing things but still stay true to any particular style they choose to toy with, or make fun of. But are these songs any good? In a word: "Yes!". Like almost all their albums it really depends on who you are, so, take it with a word of caution. If you're a TKK fan and have enjoyed TKK over the past 10 years then your sure to like most -- if not all -- of these songs. You might even find Luna to be their best album since 1991's Sexplosion!. If your new to TKK you'll find many things to enjoy in Luna if you choose not to take it seriously. If your looking for a display of darkness and horror shows then you might want to check out TKK's first two albums (I see good spirits... and Confessions of a Knife) or risk disappointment since you won't find much of that here. With all the wild fun, colorful and often very amusing lyrics, you cannot go wrong with Luna."
TKK ~ give us poison, make us holy, keep us happy!

"This TKK album is one of my faves along with 13 above the night and confessions of a knife. I like the dance tracks the best like "temptation serenade", "radio silicon", and "flesh playhouse". This is definitely the strongest album TKK's put out in awhile. The last couple of albums had a lot of good songs, but quite a few stinkers too, while luna is solid the whole way through."
