Suspiria is an absolutely amazing band. Matthew Carl Lucian has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. Combine that with ingenious synthesized music and some of the most beautifully poetic lyrics I have ever heard, and you have yourself one good band.
However, I will say that while Dancefloor Tragedy is a good compilation of Suspiria's work, it is nothing compared to the sheer masterpiece that is another of their albums, Drama. The full vocal version of "The Treacher Song" appears on Drama, and it is frankly the best song that I have ever heard, period. (The version of this song that appears on Dancefloor Tragedy omits most of the vocals.)
I beg of you, look for Suspiria's _Drama_. You will not be disappointed. It is a bit difficult to find, but if you look on some of those more obscure online music stores that cater to gothic and industrial music, they might have it.

Thanks to Amazon for turning me on to this band. Somehow, they flew underneath my radar during their heyday. I'm usually right on top of any new goth/darkwave bands to hit the scene, but oh well!

From what little I know of the band, there were only a couple of studio albums out there ("Drama" to name one). So while this is a "best of" album, it's certainly not a retrospective covering half a dozen or so albums. Thankfully, there are the obligatory soundclips included here, so you can get a little taste of what to expect.

I suspect this album will entice quite a number of goth/darkwave devotees. While I certainly can't pigeonhole this band into one particular sound, I'm certain that fans of Bauhaus, The Sisters of Mercy, Rosetta Stone, The Cruxshadows, and other similar goth bands throughout the generations will find familiar ground with this one.

Since soundclips are often deceptive, I'll throw in my opinion of the better tracks on this collection. By far, "Allegedly, Dancefloor Tragedy" and "Assassin Soul" are the album's standout tracks. "(Now we see) the Swine," "Olympian in Ivory," "Glitter," "Goodbye 70's," and a cover of Depeche Mode's "Behind the Wheel" round out my second place choices. Aside from these 7 superlative tracks, however, I can't wholeheartedly recommend anything else as a standout track---the others don't suck, they just don't satisfy as much. I'm fickle of course, and as some of these other tracks grow on me I may find myself drawn to them in the future. For now though, I'll give these 7 tracks the "5 stars" they deserve and leave it up to you to decide the rest.

This great album is a mixture of rock and groove and it works out well. There is a Depeche Mode cover on this album (Behind the Wheel) and if you think highly of those guys then there is a good chance that Suspiria will also be to your liking. This duo follows the 80s goth-disco tradition founded by such groups as Alien Sex Fiend and Specimen but it also contains that high pitched guitar style that makes gothic rock so unusual. The singer uses a very old world accent in his singing which, along with synthetic organs, gives this music a very dreamy undertone. Best track is 'Allegedly, Dancefloor Tragedy'.

The whole cd is good, but just Allegedly, Dancefloor Tragedy is well worth buying the whole cd.
