"If you're a picky listener of eclectic music, this album is for you. While it may not contain My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult's top club tracks, it is more representative of their overall work than any other album. The ingenius use of samples, their trademark horns and the twisted lyrics of Buzz McCoy and Groovie Mann combine to make a shockingly pleasing sound. From the opening cut (which you may recognize as a different mix of "Kooler Than Jesus" than on Confessions of a Knife) it seems as if they have an obsession with Satanism and disco, something most people have an aversion to. The album's strongest cut, "Nervous Xians" later appeared shortened on the OMPS to the crow, and was titled "After the Flesh." In short, if you are a real TKK fan, and you do not own this album, it's time you do."
My favorite MLWTTKK offering

"TKK has gone through quite a change since their early days. Personally I stopped listening to them after Sexplosion (a bit too cheesy for my tastes) and I have to rank this at the top. The title track is my favorite, but I think the whole CD is top notch. All the songs have crazy movie samples. If you like Front 242 I know you'll love this. For those who like TKK's later stuff give this a try too. I don't think you'll be disappointed."
Good, but others are kooler.

"In short, this is a great 7 track techno/industrial album, with lots of good samples. But, I would recommend this to the TKK fanatic mostly. As good as it is, I would start another place if looking for your first TKK disc. "I see good spirits, and I see bad spirits", and "Confessions of a knife" are most like this, and both better overall. After these three albums, TKK go from a darker, to more dancy sound. Though "Sexplosion" and "13 above the night" are both excellent as well. Whichever TKK cd you choose, including this one, you'll be kooler for it."
Great CD, but MLWTTTK has better

"While this is a great CD, it's not the best TKK has to offer. This is, however, a great album from a great band. Every song is good, from the fantastic classic Kooler than Jesus to Shock of Point 6 (in my opinion the album's best song). Very clever use of sampling on all songs, a must-have for TKK fans. However, if you've never heard them before, I recommend 13 Above the Night over this."
