4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a few decent tracks 4 May 2013
By Ralph P
Format:Audio CD
Goth music is not a single genre, no doubt much to the disappointment of traditionalists. Cradle of Filth are not my cup of tea either, but neither do I begrudge them their place on this compilation, and I certainly wouldn't say that warrants a one star review. Goth music has moved on from it's dark-side-of-the-80s roots to embrace metal, EBM, folk, and other styles and this three disc anthology covers a good cross section. For me the inclusion of the likes of Skeletal Family, All about Eve and Christian Death makes up for the Cradle of Filth tracks - and to be honest, isn't that what iTunes playlists were made for?

1.0 out of 5 stars Another Goth comp. 13 July 2006
By Jones.
Format:Audio CD
Most of these tracks have already been featured on Gothik (Cleopatra 1995) or various other compilations... and far from providing a snapshot of contributers to the genre, this comp' offers a scattered and unfocused collection of random & average tracks.
Many of which aren't associated with Gothic music at all.

The inclusion of tracks from The Psychedelic Furs (pop), Superheroines (grunge) and Sigue Sigue Sputnik (pop, again) will no doubt confuse, but the addition of two (yes, two) Cradle of Filth tracks is inexcusable.
There's enough misguided debate as to what is 'Gothic' without the unnecessary inclusion of this Heavy Metal band.

I'd invest in some vintage 80's quality albums, rather than compilations like these.
Siouxsie and the Banshees, Southern Death Cult and Bauhaus are recommended for the early stuff.

Some of the tracks on this CD are awful, i warn you.

Haloes is the best track on the whole compilation.

This album serves as a great introduction to the more obscure cult hits in the Gothic genre.

I can see through other reviews that there are debates about what is and what is not Gothic music, I'd like to remind those reviewers that Gothic music has spread far and wide since the early 80's post-punk origins, often going into new wave, pop hits and even heavy metal in the past two decades.

I would not recommend this album to those beginning to explore Gothic rock, but rather to those who are well versed in their Banshees, Sisters and Bauhaus and are ready to delve into the lesser known cult classic bands such as Fields of the Nephilim, The Mission, Rosetta Stone, Christian Death etc. The album also gives a great showcase of the new directions Gothic music is being re-imagined.

As a reviewer looking for the obscure, I find this to be a fantastic compilation which has led me to more artists to add to my Gothic music collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Goth!! 11 Sep 2011

Waste of money, most are not Goth songs at all, some punk, but most are just terrible. Dont waste your money unless you already know the songs. The company should be sued for misrepresentation!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Goth 10 Aug 2006
By K. Ashforth - Published on
Format:Audio CD
A disappointing colletion of mostly b-side tunes. Pretty In Pink as a goth anthem??? This set is NOT worth buying. I strongly recommend Goth Industrial Club Anthems released by Cleopatra instead.
1.0 out of 5 stars Got the wrong thing...twice. 9 Jun 2012

Two times I ordered this item and both times I was sent some weird 80s movie (the same movie both times) that I threw out. Not bothering trying to have them replace it. Still don't have what I actually ordered so can't really comment on the actual product, just never buying from the vendor again.
2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing!!! 24 Feb 2009

For starters, I only got the 3rd disk, and it pretty much sucks! The only song I kind of like is Pretty in Pink, but I like it better when The Grown-Ups sings. This is NOT goth! I would not recommend THE GOTH ANTHOLOGY!!!
