Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.79) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]his goth milestone brings the heaviness of metal without its clich‚s. Smith wails, guitars blare and drums pound in an echo-laden maelstrom of decay and loathing..."

Spin (p.102) - "Where all aspiring new-wavers go to study enunciation."

Spin (p.109) - "[A] druggy steel-cage match between death-disco drums and tarnished hooks that's somehow still fun to shimmy to."

Q (12/99, p.171) - Included in Q Magazine's Best Gothic Albums Of All Time - "...something uniquely, irresistibly nasty....It made sense of the abject horror of those mock A levels."

Uncut (p.124) - 5 stars out of 5 - "Smith's unearthed demos and live tracks from this period do not prepare you for the pure shock and awe of PORNOGRAPHY. Even today, nothing can."

NME (Magazine) (8/12/00, p.29) - Ranked #24 in The NME "Top 30 Heartbreak Albums" - "...Fueled by LSD, [it] is a dense, unrelenting wall of ugly noise..."
