Mute's 1991 CD reissue of an industrial compilation originally published in 1986 as an LP on Lustmord's Side Effects label. This is such a great album. Music from Laibach, Hunting Lodge, Gerechtigkeits Liga (a group I'd love to hear more of!), SPK and Lustmord, with incomprehensible liner notes by Graeme Revell.

va - The Tyranny Of The Beat (Original Soundtracks From The Grey Area)

A compilation from 1991 intended to preview Mute's Grey Area sub-label, announcing their plans to make classic industrial and post-punk sides available again. This was very exciting when it came out. Before this, the original albums were very hard to come by. The disc included music from Throbbing Gristle, Non, Swell Maps, Monte Cazazza, Chris Carter, The Boys Next Door, Can, SPK, Dome, Wire, Die Krupps, Einstuerzende Neubauten, DAF and more. It's still a hell of a collection.
