Listen free to Skinny Puppy – Last Rights (Love in Vein, Killing Game and more). The album included a ballad ("Killing Game"), a first for the group, as well as the dance-floor friendly track "Inquisition", and dense sound sculptures like "Download" and "Riverz End" (a joint remix of two tracks from the Rabies album, "Rivers" and "Choralone")  .

Last Rights is easily the most atonal, challenging, elaborate, and angry of their career, and it is so much the better for it. This was the sound of a band that was on a personal downward spiral, but talented enough to convey that fall through their music. The album ends with the eleven-minute song Download which is entirely derived of random chaotic samples, layers of undulating white noise, sparse drones and absolutely no beat or rhythms at all making the previous songs seem like easy listening. I personally think Skinny Puppy is one of the best the genre has to offer, even to this day when they're not really on the top of their game. Acumen Nation won't top this album, but that album I recommend and "Territory Universe" are both good and different enough to not be direct competition anyway.

Last Rights, Skinny Puppy's final album before a five-year hiatus, and their second to last overall, is a hailstorm of electro-distortion ten years ahead of its time.

This is the first US pressing of this CD with the track indexing error in standard jewel case.

A subsequent version with corrected track indexing was released.

Track 10 was deleted due to copyright problems. It was later released as a limited edition single.

haha POISON on side 1, that's hilarious. you know what... playing puppy and poison back to back at a party just might work...
  • Bragis
Second best Skinny Puppy's album, Too Dark Park being number one. This pressing is awesome, I just don't understand why the artwork on front cover is so small on this release comparing to other full size ones.
  • Minnai
I'm glad this mystery was finally solved. I bought my copy in Copenhagen at the time of release and when arriving back home (in Sweden) I was very irritated 'cause it was mispressed. I remember selling it to get another copy, something I've regretted later. But hey, I was a teenager back then.Anyway, I'm the guy referred to in the links and remember that this was before shazam and similar services. My response to the A-side was a mix of shock and disgust. ;)I still enjoy the album, even though I consider it the first on a downward slope...
  • Whiteflame
A-side and B-side is Poison. $6 and Mint by Tradera
  • Maximilianishe
I think, I was the same irritated that time, too :)
  • Samulkree
Does the label collected impressions ? I never saw one of these to sell .
  • SING
The last Industrial album from the 1980's era. People seemed to moved on to rock or techno after this. Generalizing of course.
  • Dorilune
Amazing Skinny Puppy album. 1992 Europe cd.---------------------------------------------------------------------------This is a soundtrack that describes the destruction of an alien's galaxy .The music shows Incredible complexity of the production , electro industrial In all its glory. Listening to the music is a journey through sounds and effects from the distant future , the music is a Mix of aggression and beautiful sadness in a way that only Skinny puppy can provide, Waves of chaos and paranoia being transmitted from the speakers.The Frequencies on the second part in the last trackare the last sounds of a dying star a few seconds after his exploding .
  • Virn
Some clarifications on realdemagic's comments:The poll was held by Nettwerk, not the band. They asked the members of the forum. Therefore, the poll could only include Nettwerk releases... which is why the Process, etc. was not included. It was also not a simple "rerelease", it was to be a remastered release... meaning which album folks most wanted to hear get the big treatment for vinyl.
  • VariesWent
Just out of curiosity, anyone know how many copies of this were pressed?
  • Shakar
I'm interested to know what happened to the mispress I used to own. One side was indeed Skinny Puppy, the other contained some classical stuff. I regret selling it... a lot!
  • grand star
Seems like there were a few unfortunate issues with this vinyl release. I bought this when it was new and both sides played some fairly standard sounding rock'n'roll crap. I returned the vinyl and re-ordered it a couple of times but got the same pressing from the Norwegian distro on at least three occasions, by which time I had already given up and got the CD - which had mastering errors as well. I suppose I should have held on to it, but I was more interested in getting the new SP record and besides it didn't seem rare to me as I had gotten a few of them with the same fault.
  • Sti
Weird combo... but a standard Skinny Puppy release I take it? The weird with mine was the mispress.
  • Oghmaghma
lol i got something very similar - whereby i found a Beautiful South CD stuck in behind the CD tray for Rabies :P bizarre... how the two can even come close to sitting in on the same table is beyond me :P
  • Ubrise
This vinyl set is the result of a poll the band held. They asked the fan community which release they would want released on vinyl. Here's the bad news-Last Rights was released on vinyl in the UK and saw promotional releases in the US. While it may be pricey, it WAS previously released on vinyl. Why everyone voted for this and not The Process, Greater Wrong of the Right, or the Back and Forth series is beyond me. One of these would have expanded SP's vinyl catalog and pleased completists everywhere. So that is a HUGE bummer. However, the good news is you can now get this album on vinyl cheaper and easier, and the vinyl is 180 grams at 45 RPM, which is WAY better than the previous release. This also comes with a bonus CD of the album for easy digitizing, and if you're like me and own the original pressing with the tracking errors, it's nice to have a corrected CD.
  • Prorahun
I voted for Last Rights on Litany because it was the missing link in my collection of Puppy albums as it was the most expensive record--at that time it was retailing for $200 for an original version with the full artwork. If they re-issued the rest of their catalog with treatment like this I would buy two copies of them all. Having 2x180 gram LPs just added to the quality and the added CD was a nice touch. It truly is a shame that Left Handshake still couldn't be included.
  • Hasirri
To add some corrections to and help answer your questions about "why":It was Nettwerk (not the band) who held the poll. They polled the members of the forums about which Nettwerk SP release should be issues on limited vinyl - Last Rights won that poll.
  • Corgustari
you answered your own question as to why this was chosen. nettwerk is who was releasing the vinyl, so the process and tgwotr are immediately disqualified, as they never owned the rights to publish those records. last rights is, while you may disagree, considered by many to be their finest work. a natural choice. i myself voted in the poll (for this record), and own a copy... and it is simply fantastic. i couldn't be more pleased with this. my only wish is that nettwerk would give too dark or rabies similar treatment (or any of them, for that matter).

First of all: Skinny Puppy’s “Last Rights” and Coil's " Love's Secret Domain" are the most progressive electronic music album at the beginning of the 90's one can possibly imagine. If one considers which music at that time was labeled IDM (Intelligent Dance Music), see Warp Records for example, their music appears such as child quark compared with the albums of Skinny Puppy and Coil. Do not understand me the wrong way, I love IDM and WARP, however SP and Coil experimented with multilayered sounds and Samples approximately 6-10 years before such producers such as Autechre or Richard Devine even had the idea to produce highly complex music at all. Regarding “Last Rights” I must say that it’s a surreal monster and a personal soundtrack to an atomic apocalypse: energy-laden, cold, sad, destructive, melancholic, dirty, fast, slow…none of these terms can fully describe the dark atmosphere of "Last Rights". Nevertheless I have personally two associations with two films also developed at the same time which convey a similar dark and hopeless atmosphere: Terminator 2, Alien 3. However “Last Rights” is and remains an indescribable album. Whether it’s the opened „Love In Vein“ (with synths recalling Coil’s “Anal Staircase”), “Killing Game” (where Ogre even dares to make a ballade), the powerful and my personal favourite “Inquisition”, the sad “Riverz Ends” (actually a new enhanced mix of "Rivers" and "Choralone" from the Rabies LP) or the noisy sound collage “Download” (which casts a shadow on Merzbow’s ever same and repetitive “music”)……all tracks do convince. The live drums and samples of cEvin Key and Dwayne Goettel are ingenious, the music harmoniously with soft transitions and multilayered, partly hidden sounds. Ogres vocals are at their highest peak with powerful lyrics which were so personal that he decided not to print them in the booklet. Also not mentioned is Martijn de Kleer synth contribution on “Download” recorded without his knowledge during a rehersal to the Last Rights session, additionally underlining the “freestyleness” of the track. Careful listeners will also recognize previously recorded sounds for the “Too Dark Park” album and Tear Garden’s “Last Man To Fly”.The time around “Too Dark Park” and “Last Rights” creates the zenith of SP’s creativity, unfortunately also of their drug abuse, and all of SP’s fans do know where this did lead. Urban legends even tell, that under the sound layers of “Knowhere” a heroin shot by Ogre can be heard. However, the truth is that this album describes mourning, fear, aggression and suppressed feelings in such a good way that I would not recommend it to listeners which suffer from depression or a had a really bad time.In contrast to this and talking about sadness or disappointment, all owners of the first original us pressing of the CD will be angry as hell because the track-index was set at the wrong places and that means that every song starts with a 30 seconds delay.Technically not imperfect but artistically very much, is the omission of the 10th track which is also mentioned in the booklet. It’s called “Left Handshake” and contains speech samples of Dr. Timothy Leary which lead to licensing and copyright problems leading to finally to the fact that the song was not pressed on the final album. Fortunately it was later released on a limited to 1000 pieces cd single called “Track 10” on the Doomsday Festival live in Dresden in the year 2000. The german and european versions of the “Back & Forth Vol. 3 & 4“ compilation also do contain it, especially the one with the cat# SPV 085-22402 DCD. Demo’s and different versions of this tracks are also floating on the internet. Oh and don’t forget to listen to the B-Side to “Inquisition” called “LaHuman8” from the same sessions.All in one a great album showing that Skinny Puppy don’t fit in any musical cliché, especially regarding the various “black scenes” (and I don’t mean the afro-american ones ;) ). A true germ which took (imho) the original experimentalism of classic industrial music to new and interesting and maybe more accessible grounds, remaining haunting, creative and honest.
  • Budar
your review is very fair to skinny puppies productions etc - though Last RIghts is clearly not my favourite - but i think its unfair of you to be putting Warp releases of the time in the same bucket, as you yourself know you are talking about completely different musical genres - essentially the IDM type stuff that had come out by then (wasnt even labeled IDM at the time, the term had been coined, but it was still very much emerging) - but essentially i dont think its about the amount of layering involved, as essentially the vibe each artist is trying to achieve is the sound of their own scene - neither black dog, nor B12 for example ever had the intention to make music sounding anything like SP as the crowd going for that sound was clearly not into SP not anyother industrial / ebm sound of the epoque - so what you are saying is super clear, and makes perfect sense, but i dont think its fair to any artist on Warp or anyone that produced alternative sounds for the IDM/ambient/ nor any of the other scenes since then / sure layering has become more elaborate again with scenes like Glitch etc - also its worth noting that a lot of the layering in Skinny Puppy's productions also has to do with the sometimes chaotic / distorted sounds they were trying to achieve - essentially sounds purely associated with Industrial music. just my take on this - a hardcode SP fan, turned techno, house, idm, ambient, triphop lover, though now i nearly only ever listen to 70's soul ;) progressions progressions :P
  • Tcaruieb
As far as progressive, I'd throw in Cyberaktif's - Tenebrae Vision as well. Great review!!!
  • Hallolan
I bought this album in one of its Capitol incarnations in the late 90s, so by then the track problems had been fixed, but I could imagine that was quite annoying. Technicalities away, this is definitely Skinny Puppy's opus. It is a good example of a well-rounded album in my book, one which, while having some stand-out tracks ("Killing Game," "Knowhere?," "Scrapyard"), does not interrupt the flow with singles-to-be. The band really explores extended ambience as well as the peak application of Key's live drumming and abrasive sampling. The album is like a stripping away of layers and layers of self and ruined emotion towards a spiritual preparation for death. Every track coheres into this theatre of the mind. That said, the album really does suffer from the lack of the original Track 10, Left HandShake. It was the most simulataneously mirror-stare meditative and medicatively gut-wrenchingly disorienting track on the album, a perfect climax before the stunning explosion into satori that is Download. However anyone who uses a computer who's acquired Track 10 knows how to arrange the album the way it was intended to be heard in the first place.
  • elegant stranger
Through the first few listens, I was drawn to Scrapyard for some reason. I then gradually started to favor Love in vein and Killing game. Riverz end is a rehash of Rivers from Rabies. Inquisition is not too bad, but there are better singles out there. The song names are quite interesting in how they are spelled and utilize homonyms as well as synonyms.
Many of the initial released copies were defective. A second issue of 'Last Rights' was released with a sticker slapped on the cardboard box marked "quality controlled".
  • Ferri - My name
I don't know whether it's the same on the Nettwerk release of 'Last Rights' or not, but the tracks on Capitol's release are cut incorrectly. excluding the first track, every other track starts at the last 30 seconds of the preceding track. Very annoying. Also, here is a quote from regarding track 10: ----- The tenth track, which is missing from the track listing of Last Rights, was originally entitled "Left Handshake," and was a song featuring extensive samples of Timothy Leary. However, the owner of the source of the samples threatened Skinny Puppy with a law suit, if they used the samples in question. Not wishing to be involved in legal complications -- although Leary personally had given his permission for use of his words in the song -- Skinny Puppy decided to drop the song altogether. It has since appeared on the European release of Brap, as well as on a couple of bootlegs. -----
