06:21:03:11 Up Evil is an album by Front 242, released in 1993.[5][6][1]

Album Title[edit]

Utilising a simple alphanumeric conversion from numbers to letters, i.e. 1=A, 2=B, 3=C, ..., 26=Z, the title can be interpreted as:

  • 06 = F
  • 21 = U
  • 03 = C
  • 11 = K

Which gives a full album title of Fuck Up Evil.

Critical reception[edit]

Trouser Press called the album "strong but not striking," and preferred 05:22:09:12 Off.[5] Entertainment Weekly called it "a tad ambitious," writing that "this aural exorcist is more gripping than previous efforts."[4]
