Skinny Puppy Format: Vinyl. There is not a single bad track on this album. I can't believe I've lived so long without hearing the brilliance of Skinny Puppy music. Although i have to say that this is not music for everyone.

Skinny Puppy disbanded for a time, following the death of Goettel by overdose in August 1995. Their final album "The Process" was completed and released in early 1996, and quickly became a bridge that earned the band many new fans. After a 5 year absence, they reformed in 2000 for a one-off concert appearance at the Doomsday festival in Dresden, Germany (which has since been released as Back And Forth, Vol. 5 in 2001). The first studio album since their reformation "The Greater Wrong Of The Right" was released after years of anticipation in 2004.

Was the vinyl version affect by the Dolby noise bullshit?
This album will be reissued on vinyl hopefully by the end of this year or next.
This has never been one of my favorite SP albums, as such I knew something was wrong with my old 80s pressing (mistakenly mastered with Dolby B by the label - many such copies are out there) that I never bothered replacing it with a "corrected" copy. Recently I finally got around to it and the difference is seriously night and day. If you're looking for the "right" one you'll have to check pressing matrix info here to find a '93 or later version or look for a copy with the clear CD tray, which I believe is on the '98 or later editions.
Killer album. This pressing is very good like all other SP pressings of the 80s.
While few of my friends would name Rabies as one of Skinny Puppy's top albums, it's been my favorite of theirs since its release in 1989. "Tin Omen" is one of the most kick ass songs they ever did, and yes I know Al Jourganson played a major role in this album, thus the guitars for virtually the first time, at least at this density, nonetheless, I loved the slight shift in sound. More aggressive while retaining the Puppy core & attitude. "Worlock" and "Rodent" are two more songs I think are strong on this album. Meanwhile, the short "Rain" is more typical Puppy terror at its best. And in case you haven't looked at the track listing, the final song is a near-17 minute live song that's not bad at all. I view this as a fairly unique Puppy album, mainly because of the reliance on thrashing the heck out of those strings, when previously it had all been synth, sequencer, etc. I thought it added something positive. Still, I recall some "purists" being offended at the heavy use of guitar on this album. That hadn't been their style, they weren't "allowed" by some fans and critics, even, to experiment and broaden their sound. I obviously disagreed, still do, and to this day, I play this album at least once a week. Since 1989. That's a long time. For anyone who wants to hear the pseudo-"fathers" of industrial basically mix it up with Ministry, this is a great album. If you're an old school purist, I understand, it's not for you. Still, for me, I give it 5 stars & couldn't recommend it more. If you can't "slam dance" (haven't heard those words in decades) to "Tin Omen," something's wrong. Cheers!
Just FYI, I believe all CD and digital versions of the record, other than perhaps the first (and poorly mastered) CD version, have the same error. The thunderclaps at the beginning of "Amputate" should be at the end of "Choralone." Standard Nettwerk stupidity, sadly.
I have 0 6700 30040 2 2 version and it has a clear spine hinge as well as clear inside tray.
This album is a very polarizing one for SP fans. The issue is that it was made after "VIVIsectVI", an album that was based atop a foundation of noisy layers and complex structure. You see, "Rabies" is the opposite of that. This album tried to bring the group back to their "minimal" sound from "Remission" and "Bites", which were both excellent releases, and very worthy of a listen. Now the whole issue with this decision is that the latter of those two was made four years prior to this, and since then, they had been doing a very different thing with their music. Some of the tracks here really work with that direction (HeXonXonX, Two Time Crime [as it's apparently meant to be called], Amputate) and sound like they could have been made for Bites, but have merely been remixed for 1989, other tracks have a very obvious flaw. You see, Rodent is a good song. But, it does NOT need to exceed five minutes in length. It should have been around three. There's such a lack of song structure and form to break up monotony on some of these longer tracks that it causes frustration. And lest we forget the "Al Jourgensen" tracks. Oh heaven help us. Tin Omen has remained a live staple since this album, manly because it can be powerful live (see Back and Forth Series 4), but regrettably, it is really dull in the studio mix, and Fascist Jock Itch is absolutely one of the stupidest tracks SP has ever made. It'd be a decent punk or metal song, but it's unfitting on an SP album. Worlock is what most (including me) people buy the album to hear. It is NOTHING like the other tracks here. It isn't compromisingly "minimal", it has no guitar (save for a Beatles sample), it has a structure with a real chorus. As a result, it works. It isn't crippled in any of the ways that some of these tracks are. And it is truly amazing.In short, I would reccommend this album if it were relatively affordable and it were the non "dolby b mix" version, but only to someone who has first had a listen online or something to that extent, because you want to know for sure if you will or won't pitch it out the window for it's ugly spots...
I wouldn't recommend buying this just for the song Warlock, when you can buy the Warlock single and also get that wonderful gem known as Brak Talk..
Considering the bulk of Skinny Puppy's catalog, this album is definitally, at least in my opinion, a very confused album and for that reason falls into the weaker side of the SP spectrum. The standout tracks for me are RODENT, WORLOCK, RIVERS and CHORALONE. I used to like WORLOCK more than RODENT but recently i may have changed my mind. RODENT and WORLOCK save this album, and are usually the two reasons i ever put it on. :P As far as the ending goes… the thunderclap to end it is cool, but noticably weak, and the band knew this and they give you a 'proper' thunderclap ending on TOO DARK PARK :) I like some Ministry, but not nearly as much as i love SP, and, yeah because Al J was on this thing, and the tension and mood he created for the band, kind of confused cEvin and Dwayne i think. Should they make tracks that sound like SP tracks? or tracks that Al would like? we end up having a bit of both and the album feels incomplete or scattered in a way. This is probably the only SP record i DONT feel i HAVE TO LISTEN to the WHOLE THING THRU. Because pure and simple, its not that kind of an album, its not very cohesive, it has some very cool tracks, and some middle of the road tracks. and then theres FACIST JOCK ITCH which is easily the weakest part of the record for me. Ogre got drunk and hassled some skinheads and they later beat him up for it, (the story goes somewhere along those lines) so he wrote the lyrics for that track… and while its aggressive, its not SP aggression, its not unique, its just machine gun drumming and guitar wanking; it sounds like Ministry, and if i want Ministry, ill go put on Ministry. Al got Ogre into doing Heroin on this album, and it shows. He lost a lot of his flair and focus.ANd as far as this album being the most bought or 'liked' i feel that it is most accessable to people who arent into the classic Skinny Puppy sound, which would be plenty of people, think about it, probably there are more people out there who dont listen to SP than do, and for them, this sounds most like the 'music they're used to' The heavy metal guitar sounds probably has a lot to do with it… go figure. Again, sure RABIES might have a 'harder sound' or more 'aggressive feel' to some, but to me, it just seeems like theyre being aggressive for the sake of being aggressive. No clear motive or idea that flows thru the album to tie it together. Ill take MIND or VIVI over RABIES anyday.
When I heard the song Worlock I felt that I hear the crying of the robots,outstanding vocals and very touching melodies , a duet between sadness and Anger. A very exciting track.For me Worlock is one of the best songs in the band's discography.I love the production on the album : Combination of aggression and beauty. superb samples from movies that add a lot to the music. My favorite tracksHexonxonx - The singing accompanied by effects and frequencies that Causes Engravings in the brain, there is a break on the track that takes you to another dimension in space, combination of film samples and sound effects Fascist Jockitch- Hysterical singing full of madness with fast guitar riffs and rhythm.Worlock - This track is a demonstration of unbelievable Heights of emotion and perfect production -This is a robots anthem. The effect on the singing in the chorus, the Sound selection, they connect and create an Exciting and powerful masterpiece .Tin Omen- Steady beat and Exemplary digital order of the music and the singing , then comes the break , during the break there is an explosion of machines , the machines are out of control, after the break the music repeats the first passage in the song. Rivers - Beautiful synth lines melody and fast rhythm with samples from 2001 - A Space Odyssey , A Clockwork Orange ,the Fearless Vampire Killers,Dead and Buried/ this is a perfect combination.Choralone- Lament from another galaxy.
I have to agree with Scrap_Iron in saying that this album is not at all a worthy follow-up to VIVIsectVI. Sure, Rodent, Hexonxonx, and Warlock are good songs. I actually even like Two Time Grime a lot for whatever reason. Tin Omen and Fascist Jock Itch just sound like really bad Ministry songs, sorry. I really hate sampled guitars, especially in Skinny Puppy songs. The rest of the album is pretty much just filler. I will never understand why this seems to be one of their most popular albums.
The Rollers of Vildar
Maybe not the best Skinny Puppy album, but definitely a really good place to start out for someone who is not already into their sound. The opener Rodent is a great, upbeat track, typical of Puppy, utilizing all the sounds and production methods we've come to expect from them, and followed up by Hexonxonx, probably one of the more "funky" songs we'll ever hear from the band. It's catchy, and it works. Two Time Grime keeps the par up, but doesn't stand out much following the first two tracks, and acts a bit like a filler. However, the pace changes completely with Fascist Jock Itch. Based on a fast, hard hitting EBM beat with grinding guitars and manic drumming. It has a very raw and aggressive punk sound, which I like. While it might not have the unique integrity you've come to expect from this era of Skinny Puppy, it adds some interesting variation to the album. Besides, the album more than saves its it own skin with Worlock, being arguably the best track SP have ever made - If not one of the best tracks in the world. Like a good book or movie, it feeds you with impressions without ever revealing more than it has to. The overprocessed vocals, samples and atmospheric sounds all come together in a perfect masterpiece that will have you in its grasp by the panic-ridden end of the song. Worlock alone is a reason to buy this album. But that doesn't mean you should stop here. Rain works as a creepy like outtro to Worlock, before Tin Omen stirs things up a bit with its very characteristic guitars, that probably make this song the best evidence of Al Jourgensen's production. If you like early Ministry, you'll also like this. Rivers and Choralone are two of my favourites here, finally taking the album into its more downtempo exit with a sound that could have been the soundtrack of a horror movie (both tracks come together in the masterful Riverzend three years later on Last Rights). Amputate pulls the album even further into the depths of despair, before the live recording "Spahn Dirge" tears it all apart in a 16 minute terrible industrial opus, that truly shows why Skinny Puppy is a worthy successor of Throbbing Gristle's legacy. Conclusion? It's impossible to buy a pre-"The Process" Skinny Puppy album and regret it later, and this is no exception...
Exactly! I've always said this is the SP album for the non-sp fan. (Though I think Weapon may have taken that title in recent years.)
Very cool.
Worlock is the pinnacle of the album, but only because of the vocoder. Spahn Dirge is also cool, but because it is live, it sounds rather plain and nasty. Rivers is okay, because it is an instrumental. If you look into Puppy's lyrics, they are a but nerdy. Those lyrics, though, are what makes them interesting, in their poetic, incorrect grammar. (They also tend to repeat themes. Sorry, Ogre.)
The follow-up to a masterpiece is usually a pain, and "Rabies" makes no exception. After "VIVIsectVI" (Skinny Puppy's immortal milestone), this LP is a bit disappointing, for two main reasons: first, it heavily suffers from Al Jourgensen's bad production, and second, it is the first record where the Puppies massively exploit sampled heavy metal guitar riffs, which not only I dislike, but don't even sound much appropriate when put above their suffering, creepy electronic music. "Tin Omen" is the worst moment here, while most of Side B is made of movie samples and other sounds which get boring after a while. "Rabies", however, has some very great songs on it, not only the mighty chartbuster "Worlock" (which is amongst the three best Puppy songs of all times), but also "Rodent", "Hexonxonx" and "Two Time Grime" sound excellent. "Fascict Jock Itch" suffers from an excessive amount of the above mentioned sampled guitars, but beneath them it has a striking oldschool EBM structure, reminding me of the best Nitzer Ebb! Surely this is the weakest ring in Skinny Puppy's 1980s' discography, but still worth picking it, were it not for the first three songs of Side A and "Worlock".
"Two time crime" was a miss print on the song listing for the album, it was supposed to have said "Two time grime", and was later corrected on futer releases on other labels.
i have yet to ever see a printed copy that said "two time crime"i know that "deep down trama hounds" was a miss print on the cd release of "mind tpi" but never heard of this that you speak of.
The worst in my opinion of all the SP records. Poor production and poor songs (Fascist Jock Itch anyone ?), though does include one saving grace in the beautiful Worlock.
from earth
Worst? This is no doubt their best album. Poor production... What level of equipment are you spinning this on? This album rocks. Played back to back, this is a high point in industrial recording history. From the opening track to the end, a perfect example of the best on offer from this genre of the decade. Only Ministry's 'the mind.." is on equal ground.
Rolling Flipper
That's utter nonsense: Rodent, Hexonxonx, Warlock, Tin Omen, Rivers, Choralone - this album is rad.
The album as a whole is a little too influenced by the buzzsaw treatment Al Jourgenson brought to the table, but still a great album. The first 4 or 5 minutes of "Spahn Dirge" are an amazing document of numbing guitar/noise ambiance.
