Rated: *****
Psyche formed in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in late 1982. Through the years they gained a cult status for the, here included, Q Lazarus cover of "Goodbye Horses" (that appears in the "Silence of the Lambs" OST) and released many albums with a distinct but ever-evolving style mixing ebm, minimal synth, synthpop and a softer blend of industrial. The first album was out on the legendary New Rose label, home of French coldwave bands Charles De Goal and Résistance and famous for having put out the first cd edition of Virgin Prunes. From the beginning the nucleus of the band consisted of Darrin Huss - with the help of many collaborators. This collection is meant both for fans that didn't follow Darrin's latest progressions and for people approaching Psyche for the first time because includes some classic stuff. There's also an update to their classic hit called "Unveiling the Secret 2.0" (which came out in 2006 both on cd and 12" with lots of interesting remixes). Judging from the many dates on Darrin's myspace (, Psyche are alive and kicking in 2008.
