Girls Under Glass Nightmares

This disc nicely sums up nine releases and 12 years of creating industrial tunage, and adds well-conceived covers and remixes by KMFDM and Die Krupps that haven’t been heard on this side of the pond. The fascinating mix by Die Krupps for “Die Zeit” happened in 1995 and still sounds fresh and exciting today. The band had to dig into the vault to find the 1988 KMFDM remix of “Ten Million Dollars.” One of the best reasons to pick this up to is hear how the industrial scene has grown and changed in the last decade. Buried in the middle of the career retrospective, which proceeds chronologically, is their cover of Gary Numan’s “Down in the Park,” which predates Fear Factory, Luxt and many others by several years.
