Blast First/Mute, 2007
Sadly this was a disappointment. Being a huge Alan Vega/Suicide fan, I was expecting more of the trademark lo-fi synthpunk that Vega is known for. Well, the MUSIC is still impeccable, but odd production pushes the vocals very far up in the mix. This detached sound detracts from the songs. Which is a shame, because the music IS on par with anything else in his catalogue. That having been said, this is an essential addition to any Vega/Suicide collection, and it DOES beat the last Suicide album by a long shot.
