I initially bought this CD for 2 reasons; it had the song "Welcome To Paradise" on it, and it was highly recommended as their shining moment, their first album to be cohesive and deep enough or whatever...their coming of age perhaps I guess is what I got out of some reviews? I had read about EBM and how they came about it and all, but really had no idea that they did this song, when I realized they did this song, I had to get this Cd, and it was a relief that I liked just about every other song also, and that I did recognize a few songs from clubs in my youth. "Headhunter" was one of course I had heard before, but didn't really know who did it or the name of the song for that matter, and a couple others sounded familiar also, so who knows when you're young and out ya know?
That's how I got into Nitzer Ebb also, I recommend that band also....but first start with this gem, you will not be able to hold still while this is playing....a true classic.
i have been a fan of front 242 for a while . it is funny how i did come across them . this was within ten to fifteen years ago when cds were not around and when you would go to a music store you would have to buy the basic cassette tape . so finally cds were starting to make there way into the stores . i might see myself trying to be tradition with things but sometimes you have to change a little bit. so trying to stick to the basics of cassettes and eventually everyone turning for the cds . most of it was what you would call tecnology . most people seem to get very compeled with the term tecnology . so eventually i took part of the move into tecnology wich was the cd . even to this day it is a little bit like that the era of tecnology . so the long story about front 242 was from a tape at the record sore called tower records . the reason why i think i did buy it was really because of the name . then i think because of the album cover . when i buy music i am always trying to find something that is more on the different side and something that not everybody has heard . so sometimes the one thing that has always worked for me was buy the apperance of the album or maybe the title of the band . so better the title or better the cover most of the time the album would not be that bad . so threw the course of buying music i have come to find out about a lot of bands . so one band that i came across over a long time ago was front 242 and the one thing that i like about them was that were differnt and even to this day there sound is more hard and hard to find .
