CD Reviews

6 Disks under 20 bucks, Is it too good to be true?!?!
Jeff Goines | 09/24/1999

"YES! I knew it was too good to be true. There are maybe 7-10 tracks that are worth listening to. Horror House by Psychic TV is on the comp. twice! And what's with all the covers! Love Cats by the The Crue (that's right! The CRUE NOT the CURE) And it's a horrid cover at that. If you want a GREAT GOTH COMP try the BLACK BIBLE or the GOTH BOX. Or even GOTHIK. They're all available through Don't waste your money on Gothic Erotica."
Old School Goth

"I see a lot of people in the reviews complaining that these bands aren't goth, but what they don't understand is that almost all of these bands are old school goth/deathrock. Today it seems like if it isn't gothic disco(darkwave/techogoth) or if it isn't a Sisters of Mercy clone band, it just isn't goth.This compilation is actually rather spiffy. It has lots of out of print and VERY hard to find tracks as well as some interesting covers. So if you aren't afraid of distorted guitars and are willing to step away from the Clove Cigarettes, velvet cloak, Crow comics and autographed Trent Resnore picture, pick this up. It's only 19 dollars for 6CDs, how cheap can you be?-Tommy Demise"
If only it was true to its title...

"I don't know about most people, but when I thought of the title for a set of CDs being Gothic Erotica, I envisioned brooding melodies and powerfully seductive voices setting up a background of heady, primal, and lustful emotions.It isn't.After listening to many of the snippets offered by Amazon (of which I must have picked the only good ones), I thought to give this set a go. Disappointment soon followed.One of the first, and most obnoxious, issues is that many of the tracks are mislabeled. For instance, Track 4 on CD 4 is the same as Track 9 on CD 1; others are simply wrong, such as being the wrong band.Following this, is the music itself. It is not Erotica, nor is most of it Gothic either. Granted, there are a few good tracks, but it is mostly a compilation of a wide group of musics, which DO NOT share a common theme. I would swear that some of the tracks are more pop than goth.Looking at the work as a whole, its like a bunch of record marketing blokes decided they needed more revenue. So, they slapped a bunch of music together under a title they felt would sell. After all, associate something with sex or erotica and it'll sell, despite its quality.The only thing that will keep this in my collection is my being something of a pack rat for music. If I weren't, it'd go in the trash (then again, who's to say it will not end up so later).Save your money."
