    All of this is worthy of re-visitation or discovery.

    It makes for a stark--often chilling, often exhilarating--collection of music that spans the genre(s), from the well-known to the esoteric, the accessible to the impenetrable.

    One of Strut's best compilations to date.

    This is the merde, and essential for anyone interested in the history of alternative dance and 80s electronic and industrial musics.

    More so than any record I can recall, Metal Dance cuts the widest possible swath through the zeitgeist that was British post-punk. Antichrist, meet then your children's archivist.

    As a listening experience, Metal Dance is necessarily inconsistent; as a cultural document, it is invaluable.

    It's hard not to think that Jackson would have made a better case for this music if he'd put together one blinding disc of stomping giants and polyrhythmic oddities, rather than padding things out with so many wannabes and never-could-bes.
