Having read some rather unimpressed reviews, I went to buy this album having heard, and liked, Bait and Switch.
I was surprised by what I heard. Despite owning well reviewed KMFDM albums such as Nihil and Naive, I would actually call this album, 'Blitz', my favourite. It's just so varied and playful that i can't help but enjoy it. I own most of their albums, and I'd say this is one of their best, if not the best, along with Hau Ruck, Nihil and Xtort.
If you've never heard of KMFDM, but like The Prodigy or Rammstein, give this a listen. It combine dance beats and guitars better than most albums.
Top tracks would be Symbol [Up Uranus], Bait and Switch and the superb cover of Human League's Being Boiled.

Been listening to KMFDM for a while now and they certainly know how to keep the standards high with each album they release. BLITZ is no exception, mixing industrial beats with crunching guitars, they really are such a unique band to listen to. This is more a dancy style album but will please fans of their older stuff, such as NIHIL and WWIII all the same. Overall, they've stuck to a formula which has worked for over 20 years now and they are showing no signs of slowing down any time soon, which isn't a bad thing!!
