Similar to the 1997 release Reclamation, Monument is essentially a best-of compilation, with several previously unavailable remixes included.
With selections taken solely from their 1989-1993 period (what many fans feel was their peak), all of the tracks on Monument have been edited together by band producer/co-collaborator Greg Reely.
Proving to be a worthy companion to Reclamation, the album shows once and for all why many put Front Line Assembly in the same class as other influential electro bands from the same era (Ministry, NIN, Meat Beat Manifesto, etc.).
The same harsh vocals and repetitive electronic percussion that Front Line Assembly used extensively in the early '90s have been inherited by such present-day bands as Fear Factory and Stabbing Westward -- "Big Money (remix)," "Mental Distortion," "Virus (Cauterized Mix)," and "Laughing Pain" are all prime examples.
Containing over 73 minutes of music, Monument is another fine compilation of Front Line Assembly.
