Carcass - Choice Cuts (2004) Retail CD
Carcass were a band who at their best produced the greatest grindcore and death metal ever released, so why only 3 stars? Mainly, because Choice Cuts a bafflingly pointless exercise. Who needs a Carcass ‘Greatest Hits’ compilation album anyway? Some people prefer the early grind stuff, some people prefer the later more commercial stuff, and virtually everyone loves their middle Necroticism period, but even if you are a complete newcomer looking for a sampler you can get the ‘Wake Up and Smell the Carcass’ compilation, which as well as covering all eras of the bands history has the bonusmore… of being comprised of non-album rarities. So – tracks 1-13 are mostly brilliant musically (though personally the Swansong era material isn’t to my tastes), but if you like this stuff buy the actual albums – Greatest Hits collections are for rock and pop bands, not extreme death metal! Anyway – there is some purpose in the dedicated Carcass fan shelling out some money on this due to the bonus inclusion of the bands two John Peel sessions. Eight great tracks from the bands Symphonies of Sickness period, when the death metal riffs were starting to come through but the sound was still wonderfully grimy grindcore. Not massively different from the album versions it’s true, but historically these sessions were very important for gaining Carcass exposure (I can still remember thinking ‘what the hell was that noise!?!’ after hearing Foeticide on the radio back in 1990), and they are at least unavailable elsewhere on CD, unlike the rest of the tracks.So, some rare Peel sessions and a nice long Ken Owen interview in the booklet make this a reasonably worthwhile purchase for committed fans of the band – if you’re new to Carcass and want a sampler ignore this and just get ‘Wake Up and Smell the Carcass’ instead.
