"MLWTKK was one of the most cleverest groups in the early Wax Trax! days. A clever blend of Disco/Industrial complete with plenty of gay sensibility, camp and cheesy B-movie Satanism. Groovie Mann and Buzz MCCoy along with the Bomb Gang Girlz delivered some of the most memorable club hits of their time. This collection includes what is truly the best of the Thrill Kill Kult. As the group went on, they lost some of that magic touch. This is the Classic TKK. Includes the great 12" Dance Single "A Girl Doesn't Get Killed . . ." Too bad it is missing the KMFDM Remix of "The Days OF Swine and Roses" which is one of the best club singles ever. Find it!"
Great Album Gets Better

"One of the few albums that I still like hearing, finally re-issued including their best twelve inch single 'A girl doesnt' get killed by a make-believe lover... cause it's hot' (which contains the remix of Daisy Chain for Satan). This collection has always been an exceptional mix of TKK's original sound, but along with the additional tracks, and all remastered, it becomes a classic re-issued. Definitely worth the purchase."
Cooler than "Kooler Than Jesus".

"From what I see, this disc is basically just the "Kooler Than Jesus" ep with extra tracks. Hey, fine with me, I'll take those first 7 tracks remastered. Obviously besides the better sound, this includes another 6 prime cuts. "A Daisy Chain For Satan" and "Leathersex" can be found elsewhere, but both are excellent. We get a couple songs from the "Showgirls" soundtrack on the end here too. But the best addition is the "A Girl Doesn't Get Killed By A Make-Believe Lover/'Cuz It's Hot" combo. In a way it's a rather strange collection, and in another way, it's absolutely essential to the TKK fan. They have a "best of" out also."
Cuz it's kooler than hot

"I can't get into most new music... I can't get into a lot of newer "goth" either, it's hard to just like newer stuff for what it is. So, I've been going backwards for the past several years, & I've been playing catchup with some of the bands I didn't get a chance to hear before, or have liked for a while & it just took me a while to get into them... as is my case with TKK. I first heard "Sex on Wheels" in '92 & slowly heard some other songs along the way. I was too young for the early Wax Trax days, & didn't really get into them until college when I got I See Good Spirits & I See Bad Spirits. This quickly became one of my favorite driving-to-or-from-a-club cd at the time, & I also recognized a couple of songs that they played at these clubs. However, I didn't get this cd until last year... & I wish I had gotten it much sooner!! I'm not even sure why I got it, I just saw it & grabbed it cuz I desperately was lacking some more early TKK. Here're my track comments:
1. basically a remix of "And This Is What The Devil Does", or maybe even a rerecording that I read somewhere? 2. a slower track with an excellent creepy feel... really effective driving around in the dark *grin* 3. this always grabs me for some reason... just has some unexplainable hypnotic vibe 4. cool bassline... yes, after hearing The Crow soundtrack a zillion times b4hand, it dawned on me why the lyrics sounded familiar 5. another remix or remake of "And This Is What The Devil Does"... I'm confused as to the origins, I'll find out some other time I guess 6. it honestly took me a while to get into this one, but I do like this version better than the one on Confessions of a Knife (COAK), which is the version I've been more familiar with 7. heh, this song is just crazy, silly, dancy fun, I can never sit still. it makes me happy... the bassline is just too catchy... & the song's just too addicting! 8. ohhhh yes... although I really dig the songs b4 this one, making myself listen to them one after another makes this song well worth the wait. I know I heard this at a club one time years ago & didn't know who it was... so I asked the DJ, & after finding out it was them, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I just had no clue what album it was from, & forgot about it... now I know. definitely my favorite, & has quickly become one of my fave TKK songs. 9. I luv this song... the distinctive scream just describes your most aggravating day too perfectly... although I do like the mix on CoaK better. 10. I've heard this one before too, although probably the CoaK version. This one took time to grow on me, but I really dig it now. 11. omg (*semi-sarcasm*), this song is just too cool... I can't explain why, I won't even try. 12. very different than most of the songs on here.. saxes, horns, piano, etc... but it's still good 13. mmm, dreamy clubby goodnes... & I do believe I heard a glimpse of it on the movie Showgirls *grin*
Overall, a must-have for anyone's gothy-dance collection. I've had it over a year, & I've found myself listening to it VERY frequently, considering other newer cds by other bands I've neglected because I've overplayed this one... don't TKK feel special now *grin*. Now hopefully next month I'll actually catch them live for once!"
