AllMusic Review by

This double-CD, 44-song compilation is the best way to approach F.S.K.'s unwieldy '80s catalog, which includes numerous LPs and EPs, none of which were issued in the States. It's also about the most eclectic single-artist anthology you could shake a stick at, veering from drum-machine-backed goth-rock to chipper post-punk variations on polka and yodel, along with Nico soundalikes and oddball covers of songs like "My Funny Valentine." As such its appeal is limited to underground cultists, but adventurous listeners of recombinant rock sounds will find something to chew on here, though it's doubtful anyone will like every single cut.
