Do you remember a time before the words "dance" and "rock" were linked by a hyphen and the synthesized sounds of the '80s were a regular part of the modern musical landscape? The members of The Faint do, because they were there when it started to happen. In fact, you could even say the Omaha electro-punk band was one of the main reasons it happened at all.

Now comes the remastered deluxe edition of one of the crown jewels of the dance-rock movement, 2001's Danse Macabre. In addition to being remastered from the original tapes, the deluxe edition features a second CD of bonus material as well as a DVD including archival video footage from The Faint, live projection videos from that era's tour dates, the "Agenda Suicide" music video (MK12), some live footage and more.

"These songs may ride on new-wave synth swells but they've got a New Order-like urgency and art-punk edge that throws off comparisons to Depeche Mode and The Human League. The album is primarily driven by keyboards, though Joel Petersen's live bass, Todd Baechle's occasional acoustic drums, and Saddle Creek cellist Gretta Cohn help the album avoid a sterile sound." — Pitchfork, July 2001
