Put me in the "most 242 fans" camp. While I liked 06:21:03:11 Evil, I can barely even consider Off a Front 242 album. By the Off release, I felt they were being reeled in by the electronic music collective. Off was a venture away from their "core competencies" but instead of initiating the artistic direction of the music, it was more a reaction to the electronic music of the time. Front 242 was good to Chicago, and Chicago good to Front 242 - due, in part, to one of their record lables being headquartered there. They played there often and I was able to see them live three times. The shows were great, especially considering the difficulty of translating the studio product to a three man live stage.
