(Music) Advanced Electronics Vol 5

A German compilation of thumping Industrial arrived on my doormat this morning (along with Hocico's "Sangre Hitviente" which I've not listened to as yet). Now after yesterday's rather poor electronica compilation (actually it did have some decent remixes on in the end - it just started out badly) I was a little nervous.

Foolish child that I am.

Now the set is actually two CD's containing 17 tracks each and a DVD with a further 19 videos of songs which aren't repeated from the CDs. Admittedly I've only watched part of the DVD so far but it is f**king brilliant so I have very high hopes for the actual compilation CDs in the set.

There is music I am already familiar with (Skinny Puppy, Front 242, In Strict Confidence, MESH, etc) but there is also a bunch of bands I've not heard before (or atleast I wasn't aware of them by name). The Retosic sounded very good, and I quite enjoyed bot KiEw and IAMX too. 

I am into an incredibly wide range of music but have to admit that Industrial/Techno/Trance is still my music of preference even after all this time :)

EDIT: Ok, the DVD isn't *all* great. There are some really cheesey Europoppy and 80's sounding tracks on there too. I guess they tricked me by putting all the heavier stuff at the start :p

The Retrosic, KiEw (surprised you haven't heard of them, they've been going for ages) and IAMX are indeed ace.
There will always be some drivel on compilations but AE tends to be good. The best ones are the Septic compilations, though.
