This is a fantastic compilation album packed full of poular hip-hop songs being covered by industrial bands. This is a great concept, and it's executed extremely well on this album. These are hard-core aggressive guitar thrashing Cyber-Core songs performed by such bands as Christ Analogue, 16 Volt, Clay People, Society Burning, Terminal 46, Apparatus N.C., Battery, Numb, D.C.K., Tinfed, SMP, Colla Destra, Slave Unit, Institute Of Technology, Apolitiq, Insight 23, and Abstinence. Each song is very cyber with electronics, drum programming, synths, thrashy guitars, and screaming distorted vocals. They each have catchy hip-hop style rhythms and beats, and are extremely energetic. Most of the material found here is so thrashy that you can't even tell that they are covers of hip-hop songs. But there are also songs here that sound exactly like the original versions, but are much harder and punk style. My favorite songs on the album are "Natural Born Killaz", "Colors", "Night Of The Living Bassheads", "The Devil Made Me Do It", "Push It", "King Of Rock", and "Can You Rock It Like This". However, I like everything on this album. There isn't a bad song to be found here. This album delivers seventeen kick ass songs that I just can't stop listening to. If you're a Cyber-Core music fan, or are just looking for something different, you can't go wrong with this album.
