COMPILATION ALBUM NETTWERK,
MNW RELEASE: NOVEMBER 16, 1999 (NORTH
AMERICA), JANUARY 31, 2000 (SCANDINAVIA) REVIEW:
FEBRUARY 17, 2000
This is Release and here Skinny
Puppy need no introduction whatsoever.
Let’s just say, for the record, that this
is one of the most innovative, groundbreaking and impressive industrial high
tech bands ever. And when their old company Nettwerk delivers a compilation of
title tracks from deleted singles, it will immidiately become nothing less than
a gem in lots of CD collections. No real Puppy best of collection have been
released until now – quite a mystery actually. Better late than never.
Of course, all the masterpieces are here:
“Assimilate”, “Testure”, “Smothered Hope”, “Worlock”, “Censor”, “Addiction”,
“Dig It”... Actually, I could mention the complete track list. Fifteen songs
all in all, taken from the debut minialbum “Remission” to “Last Rights”.
Nothing to from the grand finale American Recordings release “Process”. And anyway, it didn’t hatch any
This is a CD filled with Skinny Puppy
trademark weirdo futuristic electronics, ranging from hard original EBM to
twisted machine ballads. Always with that very special edge, a dimension, that
most of their colleagues lack. And the songs are packed to the limit with
details - sounds, noises, samples... But in the end they are real songs after
all. Just the way I want it.
These are classics that I will carry with me until
the day I die.
