Girls Under Glass's new album from Van Richter Records is a compilation of their previous work (9 Albums), but now availiable to a North American audience, with a few extra bonus tracks, including three covers, the movie theme for Halloween, Simple Mind's "New Gold Dream", and DAF's "Der Mussolini". A combination of Industrial and Gothic Rock, Girls Under Glass offer a slightly different twist and the result is quite good. I'm not a fan of Goth Rock (like Sisters of Mercy, etc.), but with the addition of a more Industrial feel, my problems are eased. This album contains a few covers, besides the ones mentioned above, there is also a cover of Gary Numan's Down In The Park. There are also remixes by Die Krupps, and a remix by Sascha Konietzko and En Esch of KMFDM. My only problem is with their more ballad like songs ("Reach for the stars" (track 13) for example, whose inspirational message also bugs me a bit), but maybe this is just my problem. I realized recently that I don't think I like ballads. With 17 Tracks in total, this CD will give you a good overview of what GUG is all about.
