For those of you who are WaxTrax! or Skinny Puppy fans then you already are probably familiar with Doubting Thomas. Doubting Thomas was a side-project for cEvin Key and Dwayne Goettel. Doubting Thomas fills in the gap between the time of Skinny Puppies Rabies and Too Dark Park albums and also predates Key's Download project by many years. This 2 disc Special Edition of "The Infidel" contains 26 tracks including the Father Don't Cry EP. Now before I go on I do have to mention that all 26 tracks were previously released on Sub-Conscious's very limited and out of print, From the Vault series, although this version does offer alternative artwork. With that said the remastered version of The Infidel is still worth picking up. In addition to the fatter bass and a better stereo mix you also get 6 new songs that weren't available on the 1991 Waxtrax editions. This is pretty much an instrumental album although when there are vocals they are delivered via sampled dialogue. To this day however tracks such as "Father Don't Cry" and "Clocks" are still considered to be club staples. There are some interesting songs and sounds on the album as tracks such s "Turn a New Leaf" actually have a Jamaican feel to them. The only tracks with "real" vocals is on I.D.L., where the voice is contributed by Naomi McLeod, who had previously worked with Sarah McLaughlin, also if you are a fan of Nettwerk records as I am, it is worth noting that Tom Ellard of Severed Heads fame who scores some co-engineering credits on a couple of the songs. All in all this is an album that should be in everyone's collection whether you are a fan of Skinny Puppy, Download, WaxTrax or IDM music
