4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good, But Some Odd Selections March 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was my first experience into the Lords music. Being a huge Stiv/Dead Boys fan, after the initial shock at the format/content changes, the songs became mainstays in my CD lineup. However, as I grew as a fan, I began to realize how a number of these selections, "Opening Nightmares," "Dreams and Desires," "A Gun Called Justice," and "Hey Tonight" are all good songs, there are more "Lordsy" songs that should've been included. "Pretty Baby Scream," "Partners In Crime," and the biggest omission, "Livin' on Livin'," are all selections that are much better representations of who the Lords were: A great garage band, exploring new territories all the time. The other included tracks that I felt should've been omitted seemed more like studio experiments and corporate pushes ("Like a Virgin, anyone?) All in all, a pretty good anthology and great introduction into the Lords of the New Church and who they were. "Killer Lords" is a great first CD, but their self-titled debut is where the listener starts to see what kind of band they were. Turner and James inherently playing surf rock, Tregunna on bass with some of the tastiest and simplest riffs, and of course, Stiv Bators, one of the greatest frontmen ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gimme some russian roulette... July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Lords of the New Church were a neglected 80's goth/punk band. This CD is a greatest hits of sorts which includes Dance With Me (which had minor play on MTV in the early 80's), Method To My Madness, and Russian Roulette (my favorite song by them). They even covered Madonna's "Like A Virgin" which is included on this cd. If you're into 80's goth such as Bauhaus, check out the Lords today!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lords of the New Church - Killer Lords CD. March 15 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Lords of the New Church are a group that are hard to find on cd. This "best of" covers all of their albums. With 19 songs on the
cd it is a good cd for the alternative music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Killer, No Filler Dec 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Lords Greatest Hits. Like any other LORDS album, a meaningful masterpiece and certainly significant theosophically, against the backdrop of most 80's vibrant/vapid offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars HEY TONIGHT THROW THIS ON June 2 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Always ahead of their time, it would be great if the Lords of the New Church found their time now. The CD combines the raw and the polished Lords. It just gets better with age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could have been Great! May 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who has never been exposed to the L.O.T.N.C. this is a good place to start. Their first (and best) album is out on CD but the other two (Method to our Madness and Is Nothing Sacred) are out of print. This CD has some unreleased songs and B-sides that would be better replaced by some of the better tunes from the two out of print CD's. Since this (Best of) CD came out right after their third CD it was appropriate material at that time. In hindsight the two out of print discs should have been better represented. I would like to see a new best of CD but I'm not sure there's enough public interest to warrent one? Either way if your curious you will find plenty to interest you here. If you really like what you hear then buy there first CD and search out the other two on vinyl or tape. I think you'll be completly entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the purchase - no doubt July 9 2008
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com

I actually use to own this way back when and its definately worth the purchase but I need to mention something... I noticed that Opening Nightmares is included on this recording. From memory that one was only available on the single of "Live for today" previously. Its worth the purchase for that one alone. All their hits are on this record... and unless you are hardcore Lords fan you'll not notice killer tracks like Livin on Livin dubiously missing. How that didn't make the cut over the ridiculuous "Like a Virgin" is beyond me.

Anyway... killer tracks here:

Dance with me
Method To My Madness
Nightmares and Dreamscapes
Live for Today
I Never Believed
