I'll review the entire cd below, but first I'll talk about the import version. The only import version worth paying import prices for is the Japanese import (make sure you know what you`re getting; many sellers don`t understand and/or have knowledge about the different import versions; most imports are simply the American version distributed through Continental companies). NOTE: The Japanese import is a different compilation than the American version. The Japanese version includes "Tokyo's On Fire" but takes out "Fetus" and "Little Death" to do so. And you don't want to miss either of those. The Japanese version also has much better packaging, including the full picture of a razored fetus rather than the American cd which has a picture of floating razors. This brutal packaging truly brings out just how wickedly evil W.A.S.P. intends to be with this cd. NOW TO THE FULL REVIEW: This entire cd (of which there are at least two compilations, about which I'll say something later) sounds like it was engineered using over-amped power tools wielded for very sadistic purposes. I first came to this after _The Last Command_ days. When I first heard _KFD_, I thought it was the most horribly, pneumatically-crafted, painful stuff I had ever heard and couldn't believe how badly the band had devolved. Now, however, I think _KFD_ is Blackie Lawless's most daring conception and W.A.S.P.'s most fully realized cd. Like he says in "Killahead," Blackie's out to prove that he's "the darkest motherf---r on the planet," and by the time he's grandstanding by asking, "Who's the one?", you're agreeing, that, yeah, it's him. Because this is nothing less than _Apocalypse Now_ on cd. The two first songs are absolute rockers, and the third is a dental-drill screech of a ballad. You don't get harder than a first song that says all you get from life is to "Kill F--k Die" and means it. "Take the Addiction" is Blackie's monomaniacal rage at his addiction being tougher than yours is; it is anger at whimps like you who can't face injected torture. And then he breaks down and admits that his soul is tortured to extremes. Then it's back into songs of all things "orgasamatic" and lethal and wicked and murderous. The cd is rounded out with "The Horror," a controlled, nearly soothing scare-fest of a postmodern pagan ritual of murder in which the sacrifice is begging you to "F-- me, kill me, drink my blood." Truly scary stuff. THE DIFFERENT COMPILATIONS: If you like _KFD_ as much as I do, I wouldn't want to miss out on the Japanese version that includes a hard-rocking song called "Tokyo's On Fire" that has one of the best guitar riffs (immediately after the chorus) that Chris Holmes has ever inspired and surprised W.A.S.P. fans with. But you'll have to buy the American edition, too, because the Japanese version takes out "Fetus" and "Little Death" (two excellent songs: "Fetus" for a biologically excruciating addition to the aura of the album, and "LD" just for absolute awesomeness) to add "Tokyo's On Fire." (It also says it has a bonus, "Wicked Love," but it's just the same as what's on the American addition. LAST NOTE: Don't believe for a minute that "Kill Your Pretty Face" and "U" (with the chorus "you f---ing suck") isn't Chris Holmes's and Blackie's loving words for Lita Ford. Somehow I think they are all too much for her.
