"While this probably isn't a definative collection of Gothic Rock; I found it to be a useful starting point for finding bands I'd never heard of, and finding out what some other bands sounded like. All the bands I've bought albums by because of it, have sounded pretty much like they sound here, so you probably won't run into any unpleasent surprises if you use this as a springboard."
A good gateway into many bands.

"I could hardly pick a better compilation myself. The first CD features bands that influenced the birth of Gothic Rock. By today's standards they don't seem so gothic, as they often don't conform to the typical gothic dress and sound. Bands like Theatre of Hate, The Southern Death Cult, Skeletal Family, Bolshoi, and March Violets showcase early gothic music at its best. You could pick up a cd by almost any band on the first CD and you will not be disapointed.
The second disc has some more modern gothic bands, that fit more into the stereotype. The songs are on this disc are actually better then on the first, but if you buy a random cd by one of these bands you may find that they only have 1 or 2 good songs -ie Two Witches or Die Laughing. The real standouts are Rosetta Stone, Love Like Blood, London After Midnight, Corpus Delecti, and Inkubus Sukkubus. Buy this CD and you will not be sorry."
Why 2 albums

"Well I bought what I though was this CD in 1998. But what the CD shop imported for me was Gothic Rock vol.2 . For some reason, the one has almoust all the song the other one has. But I wanted the CD for Midnight Configuration - No Limit. Now after 6 years 'n found the one I was looking for in the firs place. Love the older Gothic songs. I'm still waiting for my order..."
