I'm getting older and, with age, it is becoming a pleasure to listen to full discographies instead of just singles or favorite tracks and KMFDM sounds excellent from their first demo to the latest. It's not a matter of which is the better album or track, KMFDM its a sound, a noisy persistence day by day. All albums on loop is my fav track.
I hope they come up with something really special for their 20th album. They pretty much stamp their albums with the same elements for pretty much whole career. Would be good at least to have some CAREFULLY made album even if it takes few more years rather than just same things over and over again. I love all the stuff they do, but come on...
these guys gotta slow the fuck down with their output. i'm pretty sure they haven't gone a single year since 1985 without putting out an album, ep or single of some kind (including MDFMK). in the 90s they were great but constantly putting out stuff the way they do has clearly worn them down, their new albums sound so tired and uninspired. i think it's time for Sasha to just end KMFDM and work on something new, because OK-ZTEIN-OK was really good and that came out just a few years ago so clearly Sasha can still put good music together - just not with KMFDM.
If someone missed it, KMFDM released a great 30th anniversary live concert video + interview documentary recently! You haven't seen videos this good quality from them before. Get it from http://wearekmfdm.com/ and play it loud :)
Symbols, Adios and Opium are my favorites by quite a wide margin. Most of their other stuff is both mediocre and same-y. The Ogre appearances on some their more recent albums have been pretty good though.
Unlike seemingly the majority, I thought they were pretty uninteresting live, pretty much all the stuff I find interesting in their music got drowned out in the mix.
KMFDM 'used to be' a lot of things, industrial funk to industrial dance to industrial metal, and although I see it all as high quality, my favorite KMFDM style is Xtort - present, so much energy and aggression!
