COMPILATION ALBUM NETTWERK,
MNW RELEASE: NOVEMBER 16, 1999 (NORTH
AMERICA), JANUARY 31, 2000 (SCANDINAVIA) REVIEW:
FEBRUARY 17, 2000
Nettwerk releases two single
compilations simultaneously, one with the actual single tracks and one with the
extra tracks. A good idea to, as opposite to the old "Twelve Inch
Anthology", which included everything in one CD.
"B-Sides Collect" is of course
mostly for the fans, but here one gets a lot of rare material remastered, on CD
and in all one row. All Skinny Puppy singles are now deleted, but even when
they were new they weren't always easy to find. And at least myself seldom play
old singles anyway.
Skinny Puppy was a band that had demanding
and experimental pieces on most of their albums. Therefore extra tracks and
remixes were even more so. Nevertheless, most of these 14 tracks are quite
interesting when played at the proper time.
