This collection of rare and unreleased material is pretty good. Everything from the ultra-heavy "Godlike" (featuring the late William Tucker, may he rest in peace) to the more dancey, funky numbers that old-school KMFDM are known for. This album plays like a greatest-hits, which is funny because all of the songs on this are over a decade old (all pre-Angst). While ultra old-school fans will definitely dig this CD, the new-school ones shouldn't be turned off by it, either; it's a very consistent and fun album and has a certain "polished" feel that one doesn't really expect from KMFDM's older material. "The Zip" (an unreleased track) is probably one of the funniest dance tracks ever heard. It has a man talking about how he is going to "get into the zip," the zip being the zipper on your pants. The song "Godlike," on the other hand, is the highly political, ultra-heavy industrial rock that KMFDM have come to be known for since Angst. If you like KMFDM, this is a great addition to your collection and should not be passed by.
