Like the title of '20 Jazz Funk Greats', 'Throbbing Gristle's Greatest Hits' is named with tongue poked firmly in cheek. They of course had no 'hits' as such but they did basically invent industrial music. Mostly terrifying, they weren't averse to the odd stab at disco on tracks like 'Hot on the Heels of Love'.

To my ears this is one of the finest greatest hits compilations ever. I used to carry my CD copy around in my pocket for ages and pull it out at various friends houses when we wanted something to listen to. It since went AWOL, never to be returned. For any TG newcomers this is probably the best place to start as the track selection is fantastic, covering the dynamics of the multi-faceted TG sound. Even for seasoned listeners it is a collection worth owning as the running order of the tracks is like the perfect TG mixtape. Arguably pretty much all the classics are on here: Hamburger Lady, Hot On The Heels Of Love, Subhuman, AB/7A, Six Six Sixties, Blood On The Floor, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, Tiab Guls, United, What A Day, Adrenalin. Brilliantly remastered by Chris Carter like all of the previous installments in the reissue series there is expanded booklets and bonus CD tracks. I remember playing this at home after the Love Parade in the year 2000 and tripping off my face. When Hot On The Heels Of Love came on, the sun started beaming through the curtains and I had just got together with my future wife. It was a perfect psychedelic moment which I will never forget. “Entertainment Through Pain” - Count Me in.
