Enjoyable recording with memorable tracks., August 29, 2005
Reviewer: Jason Barker "kittynboi" (Tampa, FL) - See all my reviews
This album gets a fair share of attention because it's the live recording of the final TG performance. It has some great tracks on it, and being recorded by monte Cazazza gives it a nice novelty feel. Something Came Over Me is my favorite track on this, and this alone makes the album worth buying.

Going a bit potty, December 24, 2002
Reviewer: filterite "filterite" (Dublin, Ireland) - See all my reviews
Dark, fierce , paranoid and extremely scary. If this doesn't sound like the album for you then continue elsewhere . If it is however you are in luck. This was to be the final concert that Throbbing Gristle would play under the moniker Throbbing Gristle before disbanding into Psychic TV, Coil and other such projects.

The music here is blurred on first listen. This is due to the fact that the concert was recorded on tape and the sound resembles much more a chainsaw blurting it's terrible noise and Genesis P-Orridge's moaning drones and yelps make it seem like some guy's head has been decapitated. Unfriendly at best. What probably makes it even more bizarre is that you can hear what the crowd are saying. Now usually that's nothing more than chanting the band's name but TG go further. They make it sound like people have come to the slaughterhouse to see who the next victim is. And they talk about their daily routines as well. I think if I had have been there I might have just stumbled outside for a minute just to regain some sort of consciousness out of this nausea.

Now that I've given it repeated listens it's easier to hear the music and it's almost numbed out the paranoid feelings I had about this album. But I have to admit for a band like TG to make me feel so paranoid as that and make me envision music that extreme is something unique. This album is not for everyone, easily so, but those who like their music extreme and freakish will definitely enjoy this album

"Thee Mission" finishes up, January 26, 2000
Reviewer: DAC Crowell (Rankin, IL United States) - See all my reviews
This is the final 'official' release by Throbbing Gristle, originally only included as part of a 5-LP boxed set released in the early 80s. Later, this 'limited' release saw reissue as a single LP. At this point in TG's work, the fun was all over except for the last noise as required by contract, and that's pretty much what's going on here. Recorded in the audience at their final concert in San Francisco, the audio quality of this album is rather dodgy, as is some of the material. However, there are moments of wild brilliance, notably 'Spirits Flying' and the closer, 'Discipline'. But this isn't even up to the par of some of their other 'bootleg' concert recordings. One for completists.
