Alienating our Audience is a great cd. People may not like how short it is, but enjoy what you get, and what you get is very good music. Their live music is EXCELLENT, and the ignorant guy with the first review has no idea what he’s talking about. I saw them in concert and they were great.
5 CD set including remastered versions of Intium, Unholy Passion, November Coming Fire, Final Descent, and ’Live 85-96, each in thier own individual paper sleeves. Also included is the ’Live 85-86’ video with exclusive unreleased footage. All handsomely packaged in a 7’ x 12’ box set with an eightpage comic book and a 28 page booklet complete with color and black & white photos. A collector’s dream. 2000 release.

This is a great album and personally feel is their best ablum to date. All the new songs are great, and the old ones too for those who haven’t heard them yet. And for those complaining about the lenght, you have to understand that msi has no record contract right now. So all expenses come for either merchandise or their own pockets, it would have been longer but they just don’t have the money to do so. But anyways, msi has the best live stage presents of any band i’ve seen on a long time
With but one full length album (“Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy”) under their collective belts, fishnets and garters, one might think that it’s a bit premature for New York electropunk audioterrorists Mindless Self Indulgence to be issuing their first live collection. But one would be wrong (as one so often is), seeing as there’s nary a single song from “Frankenstein Girls” on the new “Alienating Our Audience,” and seeing as how MSI have probably played live before more and larger crowds than any other unsigned band in America, having been handpicked to open for the likes of Korn, System of a Down, Cypress Hill, Staind and Rammstein. They’ve earned a live record, dammit, and they deliver a good one with “Alienating Our Audience,” which offers six previously unreleased songs, plus such crowd-pleasing essentials as “Tornado,” “Molly” and “Diabolical” (from the hard-to-find “Tight” EP), and “Panty Shot” (from the impossible-to-find “Bring the Pain” cassette single). Sound is good throughout, with MSI’s hyperspeed riffs and histrionic rants making the transition from studio to stage very, very well–largely due to the nail-biting intensity of singer Little Jimmy Urine’s pre-programmed beats and bombs. Urine’s vocals, too, are strong (which may surprise those of you who think that, no way, he can’t really sing like that without studio effects, can he?)(yes, he can), as are the live musical meltdowns bashed out by drummer Kitty, bassist LynZ and guitarist Steve, Righ? Try as they might, Mindless Self Indulgence appear to be too good to alienate their own audience–and here’s betting, based on the evidence presented on this disc, that they might have even stolen some other acts’ audiences from them as well.
Brilliant songs that go from thought provoking to hillarious. Great Performances! Awesome new songs and amazing interpritatons of old and hard to find gems. This Is The Future Of Punk Rock! If you don’t get the joke than you probably are the joke. To the one person that gave them a bad review I say this: Of course Kitty isn’t playing all the drum parts. She is playing her parts while keeping up with complicated jungle beats that only a machine can create. Steve is playing all of his parts. The other guy you saw “playing” guitar is infact a guitar tech tuning Steves next guitar because he knows Steve might destroy his at any moment. You need to get out more and see more shows so as to be even slightly educated before reviewing a concert or live performance again. Mindless Self Indulgence aren’t brilliant musicians and thats not the point of what they do. Put down your dumb metal records and pick up the Sex Pistols “Never Mind The Bollocks” c.d. Maybe then you’ll get it. A clue that is.
Only 10 tracks. Only 22 minutes long. I don’t mind at all, this is a great cd. It includes live versions of 3 songs off Tight (Tornado, Diabolicle, Molly) plus some great new songs like Thank God and 2 Hookers & An 8-Ball. Not only that but it also includes Panty Shot. As an extra bonus you can put this cd into your computer and watch some Left Rights videos. Great little appetizer while we wait for a follow-up to FGWSSS.
