More punk than goth or anything, which is striking gold and a cure for cancer! The deluxe version does'nt really mean shit except another disc with live stuff and demos. Great second disc, worth the money. My favorite damned song ever was live on disc two, Plan 9 Channel 7. One of The Damned's best releases up to par with Machine Gun Etiquette. Wait for the blackout, then pick this up. Before/While listening:
