AllMusic Review by

The seminal Japanese punk-electronica band Mad Capsule Markets has always walked the line between punk, electronica, and metal, including elements of multiple genres in their recordings. Just after guitarist Ai Ishigaki left the group, the band began delving a little deeper into the metal end of the spectrum, making a heavier guitar sound more prominent in their work. Between 1997 and 2004, the group worked in this heavier vein, releasing the albums Digidogheadlock, OSC DIS, 010, and Cistm Konfliqt, as well as gaining attention from the inclusion of the hyperactive track "Pulse" in the Tony Hawk video game series. This output, with its attendant singles, is chronicled thoroughly on the 1997-2004 compilation.
