"We start our journey with the mind-blowing artform that is electronica...  This mini-album from the undisputed master of electronica  packs an incredible amount of genius into just 6 tracks"

"Squarepusher is another artist whose skill at programming, sampling and sequencing have made him legendary throughout the electronica world... Keep an open mind when you listen to this one"

"BOC are a Scottish IDM duo who make some truly beautiful and original music... Geogaddi is their latest release"

"This was absolutely massive worldwide... there arent very many music fans out there who wouldnt recognise the whining double bass lick from Brown Paper Bag. A fantastic urban/mainstream crossover"

"This is one of the defining albums in the world of Trip-Hop where ambient beats meet hip-hop attitude. The DJ Shadow crew are the undisputed kings on this wonderful CD"
The Downward Spiral

"Nine Inch Nails... No matter what happens in the industrial music scene it all comes back to Trent Reznor and NIN. This is probably the best NIN CD to start with and doesnt sound dated even for 1994"
Pretty Hate Machine

"This is different to most other NIN material it's not so heavy and downtuned. instead it seems to re-invent the Electropop genre with a far more sinister twist. This showed us the potential of NIN."
And All That Could Have Been - Live

"Trent Reznor makes most of the NIN stuff almost singlehandedly, but when on tour NIN is a band... This live album gives us a chance to hear the spectacle of a live NIN show."
Intelligence And Sacrifice

"Alec Empire from Atari Teenage Riot makes another fantastic solo album. Totally stompy, overdriven, lo-fi Industrial music at it's craziest."

"Rammstein make hard Industrial metal.... just as it should be: Repetitive, hard and mean. Harsh, German vocals, crunchy guitars bass and drums, plus interesting keyboard work make this one to own."
Machine
Machine
"Bone Crushing Industrial metal that benefits from top quality production. Wayne Static's breathy howl complements the futuristic industrial guitar and bass lines perfectly."
Vapor Transmission

"Orgy are an Industrial band that have been very popular in America but never really made any headway over here. Very Unique beats and electronic sounds accompany the steady Industrial Grind."
Hello Rockview/Losing Streak

"I love this album, it's pure happy music. There isnt a single filler track on it... It's easy to see why Less than jake are regarded as the best ska band in the world... one to own... ska rules!"

"The Ataris are my favourite modern punk band, their stuff is easy to listen to and very emo-ish in nature... dont get Blink 182, get this instead :)"
United By Fate

"Rival Schools are probably the most original Emo band on the scene right now, they dont just stick to the same emo-punk script."
Siamese Dream

"In my opinion, this is one of the best albums ever.... The Smashing Pumpkins are unique in every sense of the word, they are impossible to pidgeon-hole,  if you buy one thing today make it this CD."
Rotten Apples, Greatest Hits
Rotten Apples, Greatest Hits
"This is the Smashing Pumpkins Greatest Hits album... It illustrates how they re-invented their sound several times over their 5 studio albums, thus always remaining the true alternative band..."

"Incubus rock, and their latest album brings a fantastic new perspective to their sound, and i love it, i would of bought this album just for the excellent "Aqueous Transmission""
Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine
"I thought rage were just a shoddy crossover attempt until i finally got my hands on the debut album, This album is fantastic, political fury mixed with some crazy lead guitar and awesome bass work..."
Toxicity

"System Of A Down are so damn heavy that it's a shame their beautifully subversive political message seems to go unrecognised... brilliant album"
And Justice For All
And Justice For All
"Metallica were arguably the best 2nd generation Metal band, and the godfathers of Thrash Metal. This is their best album, it lost the cheese of their previous releases and replaced it with pure rage"
Reign in Blood

"I cant get enough of this album, Slayer have refined Thrash metal to a fine art... and this is their best... revel in the speed and darkness"
Great Southern Trendkill

"Pantera have an uncompromising Southern attitude and Thrash Metal speed to match. Along with slayer they basically rule the thrash metal genre"
Tomb of the Mutilated

"Cannibal Corpse are a Grindcore band... the heaviest of the extreme metal genres. Stomach-Turning lyrics, grunted vocals out-of-time drums... the purest mosh music... fantastic stuff."

"This is just nuts... everybody i have showed this to thinks it's rubbish, frankly they dont have the balls to listen to it... A.C make the most ungodly noise in the history of music, HEAVY AS F***"
