Poorly Titled, but fair remixes

"This album is getting ripped to shreads and honestly it's time some gave it a fair shake. Okay, so it isn't Skinny Puppy, nor would I take it a a 'tribute' album. It is a remix album much like "Dystemper" (which also gets ripped into alot). If your a fan of Puppy and the more b-side/experimental side of them, as I am, than you might enjoy this album for that whole reason. I look at it as a tribute/remix album. This album is mostly good, with a few dull tracks. I wouldn't suggest picking it up at full price, but if you can get a discount than add it to your Puppy collection. I like it."
It's not Skinny Puppy

"Ok, we all know this CD is not Skinny Puppy and as the CD says, "We will never see their like again." This CD is more like pop versions of their songs.
You do have to admit the Front Line Assembly remake of Dead of Winter is good, just for the fact FLA has Bill Leeb (one of SP's founders) and then the Download remake of Download has cEVIN Key (another member of SP).
So you really cannot dis the whole CD. It is a must own for collectors, just for the fact that members of Skinny Puppy are on the CD.
When I was listening, I first thought, oh my, is Dwayne Goettel rolling in his grave? But we will never know, they may actually like the CD - they changed the world of industrial music and who knows what they would be doing now! (I'm sure it wouldn't be the stuff thats on this CD though.)
If you have never heard the original tracks, make sure you buy Skinny Puppy CDs to hear the true sound of Skinny Puppy - it is still something that you have never heard - even in todays music.
"The thing with Skinny Puppy was, it was very 'f*ck off' music, 'you're not going to like this, so f*ck off.'" - Martin Atkins
