Absolutely essential album, just make sure you know exactly what you're getting for your money 16 Oct 2005
By mretrain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Liquid Liquid is absolutely essential if you like bass and percussion-driven post-punk like PiL, ESG and Gang of Four. I hear a little Can in their music as well, which is more than fine with me. Old-school hip-hop fans might dig it too because of the Grandmaster Flash connection, but there's no rapping, and the vocals (of which there aren't much) consist of barely intelligible John Lydon-esque wails and moans, also not unlike Damo Suzuki of Can. Again, this is more than fine with me.

Unfortunately, the prices for this hard-to-find CD are getting outrageous, and the item you're buying from resellers may not be the original 1997 release on Grand Royal, but what's called a "CD on-demand" release produced by a company called The Disc Kiosk who work in conjunction with Universal Music to release simplified versions of Universal's back catalog. They are official releases and they have the original artwork, but the original liner notes are not included and the art on the CD label is simplified. It's great, but it's still not the original 1997 Grand Royal release from a collector's standpoint.

I paid half a Ben Franklin on another used/resale website (but the same seller does do business on Amazon as well) and I received the CD-on-demand release. I guess I was lucky since I could have paid even more, but I could have just gone to the Disc Kiosk's eBay store or website and gotten the exact same item for less than a double sawbuck. It is an official release, and the sound quality is exactly the same as the original release, but I still felt like I was taken. Rather than complain about it, I figured I would just give others that want to own this CD a heads-up.

If you are interested in the CD-on-demand release (which is a great buy if you're paying the normal price and not overinflated collector prices) check the Disc Kiosk's eBay store, or their website, which is easy enough to google. If you're buying from resellers, always ask whether you're buying the 1997 Grand Royal release or the 2004 CD-on-demand release from the Universal Music Archive Collection.

GREAT recordings, but shop wisely! 20 Nov 2003
By Mipham J. Muckpo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, this is the post-rock and dance-punk "Holy Grail", but you shouldn't have to lose your shirt to own it. In September I found a brand new sealed copy of the even rarer original UK CD version (it came out first) on the Mo Wax label for a MUCH more reasonable price than, ahem... I wonder if all of us collectors will be humbled one day by an eventual re-issue of this material. But since the dance-punk "craze" is fading very fast, it's tough to tell whether the demand will still be there.

a forsight into late 90's clubing - from the 80's no less 13 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this album is an unbelievable trailblazer, forking early in the 80's from a seeminly emminent commitment to soulless guitar thrashing. Its tunes were obviously well before their time, and resulted in its underground keepings for over 15 years. The eventual evolution of ROCK AND ROLL (meaning all samples of music) would lead to the Beastie Boys' label, Grand Royal, reissuing their music. The album is a blending of one song to the next, where, to the new ear, its sounds are melted away and the experienced ear picks out the points which would be remade into late 90's techno and rap bass lines.

beautiful collage of sounds for body, soul and brain 12 Dec 2007
By Ivan Juras - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
rarley do you find music that you can went insane on the dance floor or contemplate on your bus ride to home/work or just stare at the wall wondering how this talented artists made such great and groundbraking music that layed the foundation of music to come. I only came in contact with their music recently and what i heard is familiar sounds from bands whose music i love, like ESG, Gang of Four, PiL, and bands that came years after them but were probably influenced by them like !!!, LCD and many more...
Ever wonder where White Lines came from? 12 Mar 2013

Ever wonder where "White Lines" from Grand Master Flash came from? It came from this record. Great, smart dance music.
