Often cited as Godflesh's finest hour, and with good reason, this album is the perfect fusion of their formative influences - extreme metal, the spiky angularity and dissonance of post-punk/No Wave (albeit moving at a far slower tempo than most of those bands), together with the caustic samples and pounding, primitive drum machines that formed the backbone of the 80's Industrial scene.
Although later albums, such as 'Selfless' and 'Songs of Love and Hate', unfortunately smoothed down these sharp edges for a more streamlined style, largely jettisoning the discordance and harsh samples in favour of more bland, straighforward metal riffage, this is one of the most bleak, corrosive records of the 80's, combining sludgebass riffs, howling feedback, Dark Ambient soundscapes and the omnipresent mechanised beats.
Unlike most so-called Industrial Metal acts, this genuinely connects with the roots of 'Industrial' (bands like Swans and SPK). Fans of MOR, corporate 'alt-rock' bands like NIN or KMFDM (whose lightweight, poppy sound is closer to Bon Jovi than it is to Swans), may find this record too caustic - this is not angst-as-lifestyle-choice/fashion-statement Goth posturing for the PVC set, but genuine, lacerating abjection and nihilism.
Although there were occasional flashes of the old fire on later Godflesh records, Justin Broadrick's best work during the 90's was to be found on side projects like Techno Animal, and particularly Ice, whose 'Bad Blood' album recaptures some of the spirit of this record.

Following the release of Napalm Deaths influential 'Scum' album in the mid 1980s, the band underwent a number of personnel changes. The most notable members to exit the now legendary brummie grindcore outfit were bassist/vocalist Nick Bullen and a punk guitarist called Justin K. Broadrick.
By the late 1980s Nick was working fulltime with Napalm Death drummer Mitch Harris on experimental outfit Scorn. Justin K. Broadrick was by now working on his own project along with his ex- Fall of Because bandmates G.C Green and Paul Neville. This band became known as Godflesh.
After the release of the bands self-titled EP Godflesh, it was time to get to work on the first real Godflesh album. The line-up became Justin K. Broadrick on guitars/vocals and ex-Fall of Because man G.C Green on bass. As has become a recurrent theme with Godflesh there is no drummer. Instead dull moody rhythms comes from a drum machine adding to the oppresive feel.
In May 1989 at Soundcheck studios in Birmingham, Godflesh set to work on the first side of Streetcleaner. Later that month the band started working on the second side of the album at Square Dance studios in Derby this time with Paul Neville bolstering the line-up as a second guitarist. With the cover-art taken from the disturbing yet visually stunning film 'Altered States' you know that your in for a rough ride as you place the CD in the player and press play.
From the bleak yet catchy opening track Like Rats to the more darker and sinister tracks like 'Christbait Rising' 'Pulp' 'Streetcleaner' and 'Wound' this album is a complete classic. Each song is filled with guitar feedback, screeches and a pounding bass all the time driven by the mechanical rattle of the drum machine as it keeps rhythm.
Alot of people have said this is their peak.

If there is one thing I had to say to sum up this album it would be intensely moving. The album is one of the heaviest albums of all time but not by screaming and thrashing guitars, their music is powerful and raw, their pulsating beats, mixed in with bass and eerie guitar riffs are a superb mixture of a type of music that has never graced this earth before. When I play songs like Pulp, Christbait Rising and Devastator I can almost feel the earth's crater rumble. Their music is art and I'm not surprised Godflesh have influenced big bands like Fear Factory and Korn.

Their music resembles the end of the world. It's very apocalyptic and intense throughout. The crushing riffs and almost demonic vocals are just perfect and are pinpoint accurate. The new re-mastered version is a great buy and worth a buy, even if you own the original version. I bought this immedatly even after owning the original for years.

Godflesh are one of the most important and interesting bands of all time. JK Broadrick is an artist and a true musician. His music and Godflesh are like nothing I have ever heard before. This album must be owned by a true metal fan.

This album is a 5/5 no question about it.

This is basically the soundtrack to Travis Bickle's tortured mind!
An insane drum machine, tortured vocals and an overwhelmingly distorted bass guitar plus a selection of samples & ambient, nightmarish sounds.
Lyrics are as nihilistic as they are misanthropic and this is possibly too ugly for fans of the much cleaner NIN or Rammstein. Even Ministry sound produced by Bob Rock, compared to this apocalyptic score from the godfathers of British Industrial music.
It can sound a bit repetitive, but that is one of Industrial music's main
features.

IF you ever invite a girl round and for some reason you need to make excuses, then put this on your CD player - Trust me, it works!

The perfect companion piece to David Lynch's Eraserhead!
