AllMusic Review by

On Newer Wave, 15 industrial bands revamp new wave anthems for the tougher course of today's dancefloors. This is fun and a real history lesson to listen to. Obviously weaned on the stuff, these bands (Hate Dept., Battery, Acumen, Black Metal Box, etc.) pick some of the best songs of the genre; "Turning Japanese," "I Ran," "Cars," "Candy-O," "Never Say Never," "Destination Unknown," "Master and Servant," "I Want Candy," "You Spin Me Round," "Whip It," "Relax," "Sex Dwarf," "The Chauffeur," "Whisper to a Scream," and "Red Skies."
