Many people would say that this cd (as well as the earlier ones) are just for die-hard fans. I understand it, but think otherwise. I would advise this cd to all people who like electronic music and would like what can be done with a relatively limited equipment.
ok, Corroded Disorder is not 'Tactical neural implant', that's true, but it's amazing what some people (say, Cevin Key, Bill Leeb...) could do without the technological innovation and facilities of today.
Of course, this cd cannot be compared with FLA's masterpieces (Caustic Grip, TNI, Hard Wired, Implode, Epitaph...), but it's an example of what grounds Leeb was treading to arrive at what he would do later. We can say that from 1989 'Gashed Senses & Crossfire' and especially since 'Caustic Grip' with Fulber as full member of the band, FLA marked a milestone in electronic music. Before that, Leeb and co experimented with electronic equipment and samples, mixed Gregorian chants (previous to Enigma (they had already been used in Skinny Puppy's 'Dig it' actually), hard beats, distorted voice, in a similar way to Front 242 but much harder and less catchy.
Corroded Disorder is a blend of 2 eps from 1988. Some songs are very good: 'Body Count', which is an anticipation of what was to come, 'Concussion', 'Lurid Sensation', which is a quite original EBM song (maybe the only song in which Leeb's voice leaves his usual deep voice for a moment: a scream), 'Obsession', quite 242ish, 'The Wrack', which sounds as if Kraftwerk's 'Man Machine' was filtered through a liquidizer (ha ha, horrid metaphor, I know), 'Headcase Fargone', with a quite weird bass beginning, 'Dark dreams', with the 'In the name of Jesus' sample, the same as used by Front 242 in the archiwellknown 'Welcome to Paradise'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Any true FLA fan will adore this album Dec 8 1999
Format:Audio CD
"Corroded disorder" is a medley of two early Wax Trax! releases, "Corrosion and Disorder" with 2 extra tracks from the Rhys Fulber days included: (Mutate-{a non-vocal version of "Mutilate" from the "Mindphaser" single, I believe}, and a complex bass-driven track entitled "Teardown". If you can appreciate FLA's work, including "Hard Wired", "Implode", "Tactical Neural Implant", and especially "Caustic Grip", you may be able to appreciate this primitive offering from Bill Leeb and company. I must mention that this disc is quite repetitive in nature, so if you opt for variation with your corrosive listening pleasure, purchase one of FLA's later albums such as "Tactical Neural Implant" or "Implode" and you shall not be dissapointed. This album's standout tracks include "Mutate", "Teardown", "Concussion"-(With a hint of the "Gashed Senses" era), "On the Cross"-(A dark, experimental track also included on "Total Terror Part One"), "Dark Dreams"-(My personal favorite on this disc, full of tele-vangelist samples and religiously oppressive tendencies), "Body Count"-(Very avant garde, almost "Caustic Grip" sounding), and finally "Die Sect"-(A repetitive, yet intoxicating track). To put all of this into a nutshell, if you are interested in being exposed to the early FLA sound, buy this album before buying "State of Mind", "The Initial Command" or the "Total Terror" series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not their best work, by a long shot... Dec 7 1998
Format:Audio CD
Front Line Assembly has gone down in my book as one of the greatest techno-industrial groups out there. Not quite as hard hitting as KMFDM and NIN, they have a distinct sound which I have yet to hear another band duplicate. Unfortunately, Corroded Disorder does not reflect this. The Album is horribly repetative...it lacks the distorted vocals and ingenious use of clashing harmony which made Tactical Neural Implant and Hard Wired so fantastic. If you listen to the first 20 seconds of Corroded Disorder, you've just listened to the entire album. I was very disappointed in this release.
