5.0 out of 5 stars A great compilation disc 20 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is a collection of tracks from Some Bizarre artists that catches most, if not all of them at the high point of their careers. Like any good compilation album, there is a wide range of styles, yet it comes together as a unified whole. As a bonus most tracks are quite rare (they were initially exclusive for this album).

The artwork also reflects the Some Bizarre aesthetic of slickly packaging art that's somewhat disturbing and dangerous.

I own the LP version of this disc and it's been played many times over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Electro Pop and its dangerous 8 Jun 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
As the 2nd Some Bizzarre sampler its business as usual for the label founded by Stephen Pierce who compiled the Electro charts for Sounds.
The label after years of inactivity has just been revived for some of the newer acts.
Some of the singles are impossibly rare-The The's Flesh & Bones which had as its B side Virginia Astley's Waiting to fall-about as out of place on this collections as Vera Lynn would be on a punk compilation.It actually came about more by accident than design as Anne Stephenson,Jocelyn Pook and Audrey Riley did sessions at the label and roped in their friend to record her new song.
There's pretty shocking unPC stuff here like the Australian artist Jim Thirlwell who named all his various projects with offensive names like Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel for a song called The Only Good Christian Is A Dead Christian
Meanwhile a lot of expense was employed to put this out-artwork horrible enough to be fascinating and the inserts inside with even the inner sleeve showing an airview of Some Bizzarre LPs and a green sticker outside.
What's shown here is only half of a sleeve loaded with detail

1.0 out of 5 stars A "pants" aural assault 3 April 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong, i'm quite an open minded guy when it comes to music, but this collection offends my ears in a disturbing way - it's hard to explain without hearing the damn CD, but i'm trying to make sure you don't have the misfortune to suffer as I did. There is a reasonable track in The The's "Flesh & Bones", but even Marc Almond who is normally in fine voice and who's songs convey both wit and emotion is somewhat mediocre on "Love Amongst The Ruined". Unfortunately there's nothing to recommend this release - even the artwork sucks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Mixture 27 Jun 2000
By Ulfster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Being the re-issue of a vinyl album long out of print, this CD is an interesting way to get to know the various forms of progressive industrial developed in the (late) 80ies. Collecting 10 songs of 10 (sometimes extremely different) artists, this album still can (and should!) be listened to "as a whole", as the different styles never clash in an unpleasant way. Some of the featured songs are in this form unavailable on any other album, e.g. Coil's "The Wheel" (Track 07) [for collectors: a different mix of this track has been included in the german release of "Gold is the Metal..."]. Einstuerzende Neubauten's "Wardrobe" (Track 10) is the classical album version, whilst Cabaret Voltaire's "Product Patrol" has been slightly altered, so the bass is a bit more prominent. For collectors, this item is "close to a must" (hence 4 stars), for those interested in the history of progressive (not necessarily aggressive, mind you) music, this is a highly recommended compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aural Spectacle of Boundary-Free Musical Ideas 18 Jan 2012
By James Cundiff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had this album on vinyl when it first came out. It successfully bridges the worlds of no wave and New Wave as they were transforming in the late 1990's into a more pop hybrid. Like an abstract multimedia art installation for the ears, it stands as a fascinating whole as well as stand-alone compositions. Before the days of iTunes, I taped mine on Maxell cassette tape and played it incessantly. To me, this compilation stands as a landmark of alternative for the '90's generation.
