A wonderfully diverse intro to Gothic music...
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This was actually the first compilation of Goth tunes I ever set ears on, so it's always been kinda special to me in that regard. It was through this compilation that I was able to discover many of the bands I continue to enjoy today. This is a wonderful compilation, with a wide variety of modern and classic Gothic Rock songs. Also some hard to find gems on here. (I don't know of anywhere else this particular version of Rosetta Stone's "Nothing" appears, for example..this version is far creepier than the others!)Pick this up if you're looking for an intro to some of the lesser known bands in the scene. Granted, most of the groups here are on the Cleopatra label, but there's enough of a mix to give anyone who's curious a good flavour for the scene. It certainly served me well, and I can't possibly recommend it highly enough.If anyone from Cleopatra is reading this, take note: PLEEEASE keep this comp in print, as future fans deserve to enjoy it as much as I have...Oh, one last thing - under 20 bucks is a GREAT deal for this double-CD compilation. I paid over 40 bucks in the store for mine, pfeh..."

"Some cool music! A bit on the hard side. Not for people who like more mellow goth like 'Disintegration, by the Cure' (my personal fave goth album!)"
