AllMusic Review by

Cleopatra's triple-disc Gothic Maladies has an appropriate title, since it's a collection of 43 goth-rock obscurities and also-rans. Of course, goth is a cult genre and anyone that is into it will likely recognize other names besides Alien Sex Fiend. Even so, this isn't a particularly interesting collection, since it contains nothing but second-tier songs and obscurities. Perhaps goth fans who have grown tired of everything in their collection will find this a diverting listen, at least initially, but it will be hard to sustain interest after the first time through.
