Customer Review

on 11 November 2008
Following on from the popular fourth volume in the series, noted above its three predecessors for its more concise tracklist and occasional song segues, comes this, the best Archive yet.
The collection's strengths lie not only in the mid-length runtime and segues (this time between most songs, giving the impression of a singular album or possibly three EPs), but the quality of the material contained. The most finely honed tracklist of the series, it draws largely from the Dead Cities era (including the ISDN Show favourite G Eletro, now renamed), plus an interesting look at a 1992 demo, Tokyo Travel (which apparently became 1994's Dead Skin Cells after a drastic rework), and an unusually playful side of the band on the catchy The Exhibition.
Most of the interest in the album, however, came from the opening four tracks, drawn from the band's unreleased 1997 sessions, including the fan favourite The Shining Path (now renamed Sendoro Luminoso). These tracks are worth the price alone - the only downside is the absence of Tudor Oake from the same sessions.
