    Smart selections make this the best and handiest introduction to a group crucial to the development of industrial, post-punk, and dance music.

    This one should give the uninitiated a fair idea of the delights on offer.

    #7885 is an ideal primer for the curious previously cowed by their considerable legacy. [Aug 2014, p.102]

    As an entry point into two of the distinct faces of Cabaret Voltaire, #7885 is an undeniably valuable document, and one that’s as much about the importance of growth and change as it is about the birth of a sound.

    This is a great entry point into the catalogue of one of Britain’s most inventive, iconic bands--but the shallowness of the record makes it largely unnecessary for anyone that owns the Original Sound compilations, or indeed the albums themselves. ​

    Unfortunately, however, no matter how listenable the latter half of this compilation is, it’s hard not to feel that it’s a shame Cabaret Voltaire abandoned their early abrasiveness as quickly as they did.

    Fans will have all these recordings already, but it’s nonetheless fascinating to chart the band’s shift in sound over this time period.
