I bought this on the strength of the song 'Aisha' and whilst all the other songs aren't quite as good and certainly not as intense, there are some really strong songs. Being a rock and metal fan, this was quite a departure for me. Apart from calling the sound 'Death in Vegas' the best pigeon hole or label for the band would be electronic minimalism...I guess, with a little bit of rock thrown in as well. Opener 'Dirge' is exactly what the title suggests, an eerie atmospheric number with a melody beatifully sung by a female voice. 'Soul Auctioneer' featuring Bobby Gillespie is slow and sleazy and one of the best tracks to feature the frontman for a long time. My personal favourite 'Aisha' featuring Iggy Pop on vocals portraying a murderer confessing his crimes to a girl he's just met (that's basically a large chunk of the lyrics!), is dark, intense and features heavily distorted guitars and reasonably similar to Nine Inch Nails.
Despite its attention grabbing moments, this album is also great background music as well. A lost classic.

What a treat to behold i own the original album and this is well worth buying 2 if your a fan of Death in vegas to add to your collection. Disc 2 contains remixes of some of the original tracks and a nice booklet about the history behind the band.

Moody grungy rocking and edgy. I my opinion the best DIV album of all. LOVE the inclusion of Aisha track with Iggy Pop vocals!

Anyone with the slightest interest in music should own a copy of this seminal work from DiV. Even if you hate it, you will have experienced something unique by listening to it. If you like it then many new musical paths lay before you. Go exploring!!
