Remix the TKK 3 Oct. 2004
By Christopher W. Curry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult has woven a complex and diverse musical tapestry that spans well over a decade. Just listen to 1988's I See Good Spirits... coupled with 1995's Hit and Run Holiday to see what I'm getting at. Whether they're putting on a groove involving sex, drugs or Satanism it's all uniquely Thrill Kill, and it's all infectious.

2001 saw the project release The Reincarnation of Luna, a collection of titillating discotheque favorites and esoteric jazzy lounge tunes that should have Angelo Badalamenti squirming from the competition. 2002 has been gloriously christened with Golden Pillz: The Luna Remixes and without a doubt the year will be better for it.

Golden Pillz is a stylized reworking of an already good album. We're not polishing a turd, here; TKK's material is good, damn good. To screw up these songs up would be like screwing up your own funeral. The notable differences are basically the same as with all remix albums. The vocals have a varying array of digital effects added to them and the sequences are reconfigured in an attempt to distinguish it from the original number. Markedly different on this particular release is the use of acid house bass lines in addition to or in place of TKK's groovy slap bass style. In the end the tunes are punched way up for the dance floor, and the outcome is well worth the price of admission.

TKK 2002 10 May 2002
By "brianfelt" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Golden Pillz" is an album of remixes based on tracks from My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult's album "The Reincarnation of Luna". The band is known for its mixture of b-movie attitude, aggressive electronics, and tongue-in-cheek commentary on sex & Satan. Thrill Kill Kult's sound has changed a lot over the years, and "Luna" found them updating their unique combination of eletronic beats, house, and rock & roll.
"Golden Pillz" features 14 remixes from that project, most of them done by individuals outside the band, so this gives it a haphazard quality that provides interesting but uneven results.
The best cuts seem to be the ones that stick close to TKK's original game plan. The curious appearance of movie samples has always been a hallmark of Thrill Kill Kult, and while their appearance on "Luna" was spare, here they crop up in several places. "Asylum Disciple" gets two different retreads, most effectively by Jonathan Cox. Julian Beeston from Nitzer Ebb provides a mix of "Radio Silicon" that contains the throbbing synths that were characteristic of his former band, and it works here as well. The album track "Flesh Playhouse" also gets several revisions here, most notably by Bill Van Ryn, who recasts the album version in a sleazier environment, replete with campy samples that hearken back to the Kult's glory days. Buzz McCoy himself contributes several of the mixes, with "Untouchable Class" being revised as an aggressive stormer with robotic vocals, and "Girl Without a Planet" repositioned as a giddy instrumental romp akin to something off of 1999's "Dirty Little Secrets" project.
There are several misfires too, that could be seen as either curious experiments or blatant mistakes. The repitition of some of the tracks gets to be a little exhausting (did there really need to be three different versions of ANY of the songs?). The truncated length of the tracks also prevents "Golden Pillz" from providing anything truly suitable for current dancefloors, stunting any ability to draw a dancefloor in with lengthy passages, builds, or breaks. Rather, "Golden Pillz" seems designed more as an odd radio collection, giving a number of producers the chance to inject their own madness into the mythos of Thrill Kill Kult.

What a shocker, it's good! 7 Aug. 2003
By DeEmVe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Honestly I expected this CD to have some really lame remixes by some no name mixers and just bought it because I have all of TKK's other CD's. I love TKK and I also love electronica, trance, dance etc and this is a fantastic fusion of the two. If nothing else I thought the first cut, remix of Temptation Serenade was cool just for using a teeny tiny but nevertheless there, sample from Pet Shop Boys song "Heart" in much the same way as they used Jody Watley eons ago for "Cuz It's Hot." Good solid remixes all the way through. I"m glad they didn't stick to the original songs, that's not what a remix is about.
Also check out the Elektrik Inferno Live CD. Again I thought it would be poor quality but it kicks...!

Yes!!!!!! Excellent!!!! 13 May 2002
By HBW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is why I stay loyal to this band...they surprise you every couple of years. This album rules! I have kept it in steady rotation for the past week and it has no signs of dropping off my list. If you like techno and have never heard of this group before this album, then buy it, you won't regret it.

I'm disappointed :( 1 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a huge TKK fan, but I must say I wasn't overly impressed with this album, one of the best attributes of TKK is their unusual sound, and I found this album to be rather mediocre. if you are big into techno stuff buy it, but if you want more of the good ol' TKK we all know and love I say pop in confessions of a knife, Hit and run holiday, or 13 above the night and enjoy.
