The Singles Collectionby Skinny Puppy
It's not a compilation of across-the-board greatest songs, but the Skinny Puppy singles collection does the old 12 Anthology one better by including tracks from the group's three Nettwerk albums of the 1990s (Rabies, Too Dark Park, and Last Rights). For fans, it's long been a dream to have the full fruits of the industrial kingpins' long career all on one disc -- "Dig It," one of Skinny Puppy's first and best singles, appears right beside "Worlock," from 1989's Rabies. Also aboard are a baker's dozen of well-selected career highlights, including "Assimilate," "Tormentor," "Deep Down Trauma Hounds," "Stairs and Flowers," "Testure," "Tin Omen," "Inquisition," and "Killing Game." Though a chronologically ordered compilation would have been a better idea, The Singles Collect sounds excellent all the way through and proves that Skinny Puppy was, hands down, the best and most adventurous band of the industrial era.
