2CD: Remastered 12-track album + 9 track bonus disc. 6-panel digipak with 6-page lyric insert. Limited edition of 500.

There's a new shine upon Chaos' dark beauty. On its 31st anniversary remaster, the ethereal gothic ambience of Black Tape For A Blue Girl's 1991 fourth album swims in a sea of memory, a heart filled with pain and despondent hope. These 12 existential tales inhabit a chaotic realm of reflection, fear and desire set upon dense electronics confronting pained emotions. Oscar Herrera's intense, searing vocals and Julianna Town's sensitive siren song are strongly complemented by Vicki Richards' sinewy violin. Throughout it all, songwriter and band leader Sam Rosenthal stirs up a brooding undertone of electronics, expressing the stages of desire and despair.

Remastered by Martin Bowes of Attrition.

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE: Black Tape For A Blue Girl is a treasure of a band. Their sound is lush, full and beautiful, which is not to say wimpy. This is beauty with an edge, perhaps even a slightly desperate air. Richards supplies sensuous violin lines. Recommended.

ALL MUSIC GUIDE: Chaosratchets up the lyrical intensity even more strongly than before. Given how intense Rosenthal generally is anyway with his words, this may seem a hard task to accomplish, but one listen to the lengthy, majestic album centerpiece, "The Hypocrite Is Me," will confirm it -- Herrera delivers a lyric of deep self-loathing with command, while the music backing him is an intense series of rumbling electronic tones matched at the end by a great, gently reverbed violin solo from guest performer Richards.

BSIDE MAGAZINE: It's actually sort of hallucinatory, the way things add and subtract and slowly swell... like the ocean. A CD for people who listen to Dead Can Dance and see mystical visions. This makes the Cocteau Twins sound upbeat with more of an emotional depth, more of a real despondency.
