"No one but the special few even know who Machine Of Loving Grace are anymore unless they heard "The Crow Soundtrack". That song was good, but man this album kick so much ass. If you like KMFDM or Pretty Hate Machine-era Nine Inch Nails, then you should like this. The bass on this cd is really thick and funky and is the best thing on this cd. The drums are nice and heavy too. Scott Benzel's voice is sleazy enough to get the job done and with the synths and some funky guitar licks, Concentration ends up becoming a catchy, memorable industrial album. Listen to the samples, or buy this on a whim because its totally worth it, even if they arent around anymore. Get Gilt too, although just so you know its totally different. Gilt has no keyboards and the funky industrial feel is gone, but the sound is still heavy its just more metal than anything. Note: This band is better than My Life W/ The Thrill Kill Kult. Standout tracks are Content?, Butterfly's Wings, Limiter, and definitley Lilith/Eve...that song is very creepy. For those who like their music loud and heavy. Rocketh on!"

"I haven't heard this CD is quite some time and so while I was digging around through some of my $hit I found it and realized that I used to LOVE this CD...well, the song "Butterfly Wings" which in my opinion (and seems like quite a few other reviewers) makes this CD. The other songs are great and deeply political, but it's 'Butterfly Wings' that is still the best track here and a HUGE reason to purchase it. Love that song. Sometimes just one track can be worth the $15.00 and 'Butterfly WIngs' is that track."

"MOLG have the honor of being one of my favorite bands of all time. No, not every song sounds like The Crow soundtrack. But it has produced some excellent songs, including "Albert Speer," "Limiter," and "Ancestor Cult." There's not much to say that hasn't already been said, except that this cd is still relevant to the times and I don't think the music sounds dated at all. It's such a shame that they had to break up. Three albums is too few from this awesome industrial band."
