KMFDM's previous album, Xtort, was a corrosive industrial metalfest that burned as deeply as most anything by Ministry or Nine Inch Nails. But fans expecting more gut-pounding, head-smashing euphoria are in for a surprise. The band's self-titled successor is light on the metal, heavy on the electronic--which isn't to say KMFDM are hopping on some Chemical Brothers/Prodigy bandwagon. They were futzing around with samplers and keyboards over a decade ago. It's just that diehard metalheads might find KMFDM's skittering beats and blipping keyboards a little too left-field. But for open-minded souls who like to dance and destroy, KMFDM should prove to be a hedonistic cauldron of carnal delight. --Jon Wiederhorn

This album is so good that I will discuss each song individually!!!
1.) Megalomaniac - Bright, almost optimistic electronic sounds, the lyrics are partially German with the balance in English. The distorted Kaptain K vocals describe how awesome KMFDM is.

You can have fun with this song right away when you cue up the album. 2.) Stray Bullet - A generally dark song with references to religion such as "I am your holy totem; I am your sick taboo" and "I have come...
Not the best KMFDM album, but damn close! Seems like all the best tracks are the odd numbers
