Artist: Kidneythieves
Title: Phi in the sky
Format: CD
Label: Extasy Records
in all honesty...the only real reason to buy this (other then if you are a big Kidneythieves fan) is for the KMFDM remix of Spank. nothing else really worth noting here...

Artist: Kidneythieves
Title: Zerospace
Format: CD
Label: Extasy Records International
this cd is a mixed bag. the first half of the cd is excellent, making you glad you bought the cd...but then it starts to unwind and mellow out...like the last hour of a keg party. it just gets all somber, and depressing. The female singer has a beautiful voice, and a lot of the music is done well, but after 20 or so minutes...do you still care?
Artist: EBN
Title: Telecommunication Breakdown
Format: CD
Label: TVT Records
eh. not that great. if you see it in the 2 for $5 bin at your local record store, pick it up...otherwise...don't waste your money.
Artist: Bella Morte
Title: Where Shadows Lie
Format: CD
Label: Cleopatra
you know...i saw Bella Morte at my local "goth club". they were excellent live, and filled with a lot of energy. heh...Andy kept making this funny faces...anyway...

that night i bought "Where Shadows Lie"...(and got to bs with Andy about Peter Jackson films...but i digress). a few days later, when i popped this in the cd player, i started to remember how fun the show was...and wondered where some of the energy went. don't get me wrong, it's a great cd...but the live energy is missing here. The first few tracks are excellent, namely "The Rain Within Her Hands" and "Relics". then i usually skip ahead to "Where Shadows Lie", the coolest song on the cd. The BM version of "Metro" is awesome as well. The rest of the cd is true goth. slow, and dramatic. depending on the kind of mood you are in, it could be a good thing, or bad. Andy has an unbeleivable voice, and Gopal and Bn are great at their respective intruments, but a few more upbeat songs would have made this a must listen. as it is, it will probably appeal mostly to the depressed, or the open-minded music lover.
Artist: Skinny Puppy
Title: Rabies
Format: CD
it's hard to give an honest review of Skinny Puppy. on one hand, they were one of the most influential industrial bands today, (along with Throbbing Gristle,KMFDM, Einsturzende Neubauten, and Ministry), spawning countless imitators...on the other, it's my job to point out all imperfections in the music, meaning i have to put aside all my personal love for the music and try to rip into it. well...on Rabies, Skinny Puppy had aid from Al J. from Ministry on guitars and production (i believe...). let me tell you...it is by far the best release in the entire discography that is Skinny Puppy. The first few songs start getting you into the mood, and the BAM. Rabies hit's you with the BEST Skinny Puppy song EVER, "Worlock". then "Rain" comes in, which is less a song, and more a filler track. I never really care for it, though. "Tin Omen" picks things up again with the most intersting intro to a song ever. All in all, an excellent cd that should be in every rivets library.
