AllMusic Review by

This Is Neo-Goth is yet another daunting three-disc package from Cleopatra, one that compiles 27 industrial-dance tracks for the first two discs and then provides a mix from adequate Hawaiian DJ RiB (aka Razed in Black, who also contributes the song "Share This Poison") for the third. It's a fair and hardly definitive selection (considering the title), including material from Orgy, Velvet Acid Christ, :wumpscut, Electric Hellfire Club, Strawberry Switchblade, Wolfsheim, VNV Nation, and Spahn Ranch. Fans of these groups might enjoy the mix disc, which is pulled off with a good degree of skill. And, of course, nothing here actually dates from medieval times -- hence the "neo" prefix in the title.
