Skinny Puppy formed in 1982 from the partnership of cEvin Key (Kevin Crompton) and Nivek Ogre (Kevin Ogilvie) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Key was dissatisfied with the pop direction of his then-current band Images in Vogue and began Skinny Puppy with the intention of doing something more raw and experimental. The duo recorded their first self-released cassette Back & ... Read more in Amazon's Skinny Puppy Store

This was the first Skinny Puppy album I ever bought, and I hit the jackpot. I have since obtained several other's (thou not all), but this is still the best. Boasting no poor or filler tracks, Cleanse... is there most consistant, relentless, and disturbing release. The sleeve notes sum it up best when it says "Audio Sculpture By..." to introduce the band members/instuments played. The sound hits you from the off, with a massive drum loop that descends into the music. Appropriately, the first track is called "First Aid", which is what you feel you need after hearing this! Throughout, there are weird noises and samples coming through the music, the most unsettling of which is on "The Mourn", which makes Aphex Twin-Come To Daddy sound like Agadoo! And that is only half way thru the album. Next,the end of "Second Tooth" finishes with a blood-curdling scream; "Anger" would not be out of place on any album by the afor mentioned Aphex Twin; the album ends with the light relief of a sparse-music piece discussing the validity of the Turin Shroud, detailing the various wounds on the body. A good starting place for the curious.

Almost any Industrial/Electronic/Dance music within the era of mid 80's to early 90's is of great interest to me and there is nothing quite like it in terms of Synth-based music.
This is another great Skinny Puppy album from that era. The distinct mid-late 80's beats are present, sounding very much like Front Line Assembly's 'Gashed Senses & Crossfire' and 'Total Terror' and the mini-albums 'Corrosion' and 'Disorder'in terms of beats. The sample side of the music reminds me mostly of FLA's 'Initial Command' album. All other aspects are not really comparable to anything else.
This is a good album to listen to when you need something that is really wierd and takes you on a very old horror movie type journey through your own dark imagination. May take a few listens to get full effect and appreciation of, but this is highly recommended to all who like any of the albums I have mentioned in this review.
I like the 'VIVIsectVI' album very much, and I think it's Skinny Puppy's best album, but 'Cleanse, Fold & Manipulate' is just as great, but don't expect it to sound like 'VIVIsectVI'. Well I can't really say that any 2 Skinny Puppy albums sound the same or have the same effect on the listener.
Another thing I must mention is that I can listen to this cd multiple times in one sitting without getting bored, drousy or feeling like I have already listened to this once need something different. I guess it's because this is something different.

No doubt one of Skinny Puppy's best albums, beautiful, influential mayhem that sets the foundation for industrial music. Would highly recommend!

Dramatic end of the 80's 6 April 2002
By Michael Thompson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
While most Skinny Puppy albums are easily labeled "dark", CFM is certainly one of the most. Cevin Key later reflected that the production technology employed had as much to do with it as did the mindset of the band at the time. This was the band's first album written completely to hard disk, and the use of the computer as arranger certainly added a cold, technical element to it.
Musically, the CD broke new ground for the group. While many of SP's songs made references to film samples, and often began or ended in dark, ambient loops, whole tracks here are devoted to such. Draining Faces, The Mourn, and Epilogue contain a track long presentation of film samples, loops, and general background noise that are crafted in a way to create dark, haunting pieces. While more dismissive comparisons have been made to Pink Floyd, this element made a lasting and distinct impact. In a strange crossover, SP's use of film in its tracks led it back into film; for example, many years later, the Blair Witch filmmakers listed Draining Faces as a track on a tape found in the project's abandoned car.
Other tracks were more accessible to the DJ booth. The second track, Addiction, which was also released as one of two singles, features the layered and rhythmic approach that would be the signature of many CDs to come from SP. While a song with serious lyrical content, Ogre's vocal style on this was actually a dig on Front Line Assembly and former SP member Bill Leeb's vocal style. The second to last track, Anger, while devoid of most lyrical or musically thematic content, provides a fantastic conclusion to the album - a driving, pounding beat comprised of six or seven separate elements all beautifully orchestrated into one, with Ogre's clenched-teeth ranting moving in and out of the track.
On a slightly critical note, some of the tracks seemed to rely on pre-set synthesizer sounds (some of them you'd hear on a The Cars album!) rather than the fantastic abilities of Dwayne Gottell and his multi timbral, polyphoic signature pads and noises.
SP's promo shot for this album featured Nivek Ogre sporting massive bruises to his face and appearing to be an inch from death; most of his lyrical content on this album was highly focused on the politics of repression and violence. Songs like Second Tooth, Tear Or Beat, and Deep Down Trauma Hounds are all suggestive of the contrived politcal power of many third world countries during the cold war eighties.
An essential album, for it represents more or less the last of SP's eighties sound before Vivisect VI gave it a head start into the 90's.

Breakdown amidst the mixtures of Skinny Puppy 18 May 2004
By mrgrieves08 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Although I am a huge fan of All of SP's music, as far as I am concerned nothing that they have done compares to Cleanse Fold and Manipulate, even though Vivisect VI ans Too Park Park are also great great albums in their own rights. If you are thinking of buying their reunion album, or better yet catching one of their few US concerts, and want to see just how far they have evolved, by all means get this album now! Of course, CF&M represents Skinny Puppy in their gloomiest and darkest era, and this is truly a beutifully punishing album to listen to. Tracks like Shadow Cast, Draining Faces and the Mourn meld gothic horror, ingenious sampling, with industrial percussion like no other band ever has, :wumpscut: probably coming the closest on Eevil Young Flesh. On other tracks such as Addiction and deep down Trauma Hounds, cEVIN and Goettel manage to meld seamlessly catchy, even dancy beats with the menacing lyrics provided by Ogre, which as always have something to say about the ills of contemporary society, without sounding preachy or pretentious. And who said Industrial music couldn't be a vehicle for social change! Cleanse Fold and Manipulate sounds as fresh and original as any Industrial music out today, being far more original and inventive too, and is an essential album for any fan of industrial music, ebm or darkwave.
Brap On!

Their First Awesome CD! 26 May 2005
By Mike - Published on
Format: Audio CD
For the first few years in their career, Skinny Puppy released some fine material in the Industrial/EBM movement that was just getting bigger and bigger. Yet for me, Manipulate is the first SP album that began to prove that the band was here to stay. Manipulate easily proved that SP could do more things with loops, beats, and synths. It proved that they were evolving as a tight unit and had plenty to say to the masses.

This would be their first great socio-political conscious record played to a moody, creepy background. Issues such as political agendas (Trauma Hounds) and abortion (First Aid) are fiercely played and sung. Mention about people's rights and countless deaths, among other problematic realities, run throughout the album. Sampling in this album is also better than on previous releases.

First time I bought this cd, it crept me out mainly because the music and lyrics were so chilling. It also got me hooked for more and I haven't stopped listening to it since. Draining Faces and Addiction are among the best, not to mention the very chilling ender, Anger / Epilogue. Manipulate makes a fine first impression to an SP newcomer and shows how important they are in the Industrial/EBM music.

Intense Skinny Puppy 23 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm just commenting on the Seattle music fan who is so upset that Skinny Puppy don't sound like NIN. To which I cheerfully say THANK GOD. In terms of talent, that little Spin-cover posing, noncing mincing girl's blouse of a Marilyn Manson svengali Trent Reznor couldn't match Nivek Ogre on one of his WORST DAYS. If you're into Gadzooks clothes and wearing white greasepaint to your local HOT TOPIC to buy your latest Korn T-Shirt, leave Skinny Puppy alone. But if you're a dark SOB and like drinking in pure atmosfear, SP are the way to go.

SP- A dark musical addiction 2 July 2000
By C. Gorski - Published on
Format: Audio CD
What can I say about this albulm? Its one of the darkest albums I have ever heard. Every song is relentless in its attack. Skinny Puppy really experiments into the dark emotions of the human soul. Songs like First Aid and Shadow Cast will quickly hurdle you into SP's sinister world. Songs like Addiction and Deep Down Trauma Hounds will slowly drain at you. Songs like Draining Faces and The Mourn or more experimental and "audio sculpture" and will really paint a picture in your mind. I would NOT call this album "electronic goth rock". Its way beyond that!
As for starting out with this CD, well one thing I found with SP is that everyone has a different favorite album. They are not a band known for one good album. EVERY Skinny Puppy album is good in its own way. I would recommend getting Too Dark Park before this but thats just my opinion. Also others have said this and it is true- the first time you hear puppy it will sound like distorted garbage. The second time it will you will hear more of a 'song' behind the garbage. Keep listening and you will be Addicted!
