Decent, if spotty genre intro

"This is a nice introductory compilation for someone who is relatively unfamiliar with the genre. That said, don't look for any bauhaus, siouxsie or (god forbid) marilyn manson sound-a-likes here. The sound is more underground than the fodder that passes for popular goth and industrial these days. The bands run the gamut from founding fathers Psychic TV, Nico, and the March Violets (an old favorite of mine!)to newer tracks by Spahn Ranch and Children on Stun. Also included are club classics by Laeather Strip, Rosetta Stone and the Wake. The most notable tracks are the aforementioned Rosetta Stone's "Adrenaline" (overplayed, yes, but still a great dance track!) and Pressurehead, who in "Time Slip" blend the best of Killing Joke, Joy Division and early Clan of Xymox. Disappointments here include Psychic TV's weak remake of "God Star" (They should have left well enough alone!), as well as The Wake and Two Witches, both of whom want really really badly to sound like the Sisters (Hell, don't they all?). Which, if you're a big Sisters fan might be a good thing. Actually, all in all a great cd to get your hands on if you want to look, just a very little bit, at the underbelly of earlier goth and industrial dance music from the eighties and early nineties."
