AllMusic Review by

A collection of songs from singles and BBC sessions more than a cohesive album, still it presents an excellent overview of this tremendously innovative group. Crushing distorted guitars combine with a drum machine and experimental synthesizer sounds to startling effect on tracks such as "Hystérie Connective" and "Panik," while the slowed tempo and layered electronics of "Lady Coca-Cola" sound as dark and menacing as any music of the era. Metal Urbain was not known for excessive variation, and their relentless formula is difficult to take throughout the entire 16 tracks on Les Hommes Mort Sont Dangereux, though the inclusion of all the songs from their singles makes this a worthwhile acquisition. The original edition came with a free 7".
