"The Best Of…," Clan of Xymox

Reviewed by Alex Slawson and Herman Snell

As progenitors of the Euro-Disco movement in the mid-80's, Clan of Xymox' trademark sound was that of atmospheric synths, driving bass lines, danceable beats and gothic vocals. After a triumphant run on the college charts in the late 80's, the popularity of CoX began to wane stateside. However, they continued output for their devoted European fans and only just recently [2003] made their "Farewell" album. "The Best of Clan of Xymox" captures their 20-year presence almost perfectly and includes several remakes of their earlier classics.
