To celebrate over 25 years on the industrial music scene, KMFDM collected all their best cuts on the excellent Würst and then added a disc of deeper cuts to create this set of Greatest Shit. Tracks are arranged in a non-chronological order for maximum listenability and 12” versions, single versions, or remixes are chosen if longtime leader Sascha Konietzko deems them better than the originals. Some of the tracks are just simple “edits,” most likely because of run time and the desire to have a fat track list, and while this may disappoint the purist, nothing here seems overly slashed. The Würst package was light on the liner notes but Greatest Shit comes with a fat booklet, filled with history and credits. Longtime fans should pick this one and will be rewarded with different cover art, featuring the same femme fatales as on Würst but they’re being a bit less, ahem, modest.
