5.0 out of 5 stars Goth-Curious? This is a great starting point. 30 Dec 2006
This double album is packed with a rich diversity of alternative rock music. It's a superb introduction to 'Gothic Rock' that rewards repeated playing.

I'm not too sure about the exact definitions, but it encompasses a wide range of styles. These include hard, gothic, industrial, and corporate rock, AOR, electronica and even some folk-inspired songs. The common thread is that the songs all have an edgy beauty, whether in the music, instrumentation, or lyrics. Without wishing to sound too arty, the songs explore (and in some cases appear to celebrate) the sinister, nefarious or unfulfilled side of human existence - hence the title.

I just love this album. The more I've listened to it the more I've liked it. It rewards repeated playing - especially if you are new to this sort of music. Persevere with it and I feel you will be amply rewarded. I would have rated this 3 stars when I first bought it, 4 stars within a fortnight and now I have no hesitation in giving it full marks - it's 90+% killer with little or no filler.

The compilation features some of the biggest tunes by the best exponents in this area. It has introduced me to many new artists, as well as showing familiar ones in a different light and brought together some gems that I was already aware of. I will certainly be buying more albums by the featured artists on the strength of this set.

Another plus with this album is its balance: it contrasts heavy and light musical styles, and whilst the overall tone is black, the editor has injected levity by including two or three real oddities. These may make you laugh aloud on first listen and smile thereafter.

OK, the mix is somewhat eclectic... not easy to imagine an album which includes the bittersweet of 'Say Hello Wave Goodbye' only a few tracks away from the paint-blistering weapon-of-mass-destruction that is 'Jesus Built My Hotrod'... so maybe the album doesn't hang together too well - but for sheer value of all those tracks you heard at the Goth nights and couldn't get round to buy... unbeatable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Goth? Erm... 9 Nov 2012
Let's be straight - the goth songs on this compilation are classics. There's just not many of them. I'd say less than a quarter of the songs on this are even vaguely goth. There are better compilations out there.
