    Rhino is known for their lovingly selected and packaged box sets, but they've completely outdone themselves with LIFE LESS LIVED: THE GOTHIC BOX. It gives a bird's-eye view of the antecedents, offshoots, and major practitioners of Goth rock, attempting--and in large part, succeeding--to provide a definitive overview. Die-hard Goths may quibble over who truly belongs here, but with a track list that includes Joy Division, Bauhuas, Gene Loves Jezebel, Throbbing Gristle, Siouxie and the Banshees, the Sisters of Mercy, and almost everyone else whose music caused listeners to don black eyeshadow, it's difficult to really complain. In addition to three discs worth of music, there is also an extensive, sumptuous booklet and an excellent DVD featuring 12 tracks.
