Customer Reviews

School for fans of noise...

I can't believe I'm the first to write a review. Skinny Puppy's music has never been very accessible...but this album together with Last Rights pretty much define industrial noise rock. Thick with noise and ominous textures...chaotic and dense...but still rocking it at certain of Nine Inch Nails should appreciate that Trent Reznor basically took this formula and made it more accessible to the pop audience. These guys are founding fathers in a sense, or at least important innovators in the industrial spectrum of noise...

Mind Splatter

I'll be the first one to say I was introduced to their newer stuff first, and so the older music was a tad too rough for me--but this album is horrifying...and I couldn't love it more. Every second listening to it, there's a million nuances going on at the same time, you feel encased in their dark world and just thirty seconds of any song on the track list gets your heart pounding. I could listen to this on repeat for hours.

A pinnacle of the genre

This record is uncompromisingly grim and claustrophobic. There are no Front 242-style club sensibilities, here --- no sizzling NIN-style synths or Ministry-style machismo. This record has nothing to do with the "cyberpunk" aesthetic of Clock DVA or Front Line Assembly. Simultaneously pointing backwards towards the pioneering, transgressive work of Throbbing Gristle --- and forward towards the greater musicality and technical sophistication of Mouse on Mars, the Books, and Matmos --- this record sums up the unique aesthetic power and appeal of industrial music. Listen to this sucker in a dark room by yourself, and you won't be laughing. You'll be frigging terrified. That's not to say the record is "heavy": there are light touches here and there that make the whole that much more powerful. God knows what was going on in Vancouver in 1989, but somehow, these guys had a flash of insight into the future we are now fast approaching: urban decay, addiction, acid rain, and political mass-suicide.

Drawing from the pioneering work of artists like Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and Suicide, the dark avant-industrial group Skinny Puppy formed in 1982 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Originally a duo comprised of former Images in Vogue drummer cEvin Key (born Kevin Crompton) and Nivek Ogre (aka Kevin Ogilvie), Skinny Puppy followed their debut cassette, Back and Forth, with the EP Remission, the first of many recordings with producer David "Rave" Ogilvie, in 1984.
