5.0 out of 5 stars Defining goth... 1 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
I lived through this period with a pallid complexion, big black hair and the miserable demeanor that comes rather naturally to me. Goth ranged from the comedy of the Damned to the deadpan Sisters. Serious goths took the Sisters seriously. This album contains the tracks that enabled the orthodox goths to believe. David Butcher's review is not helpful. 'Real fans' will already have these tracks on 12" and welcome the opportunity to buy the songs on CD. The production on the very early tracks does not have the quality of the album 'First and last and always' but the songs are as good and perhaps more accessible. Everyone should buy this album, dye their hair black, take themselves very seriously and sit back and wait for the end of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars The early years... 27 Jan 2007
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
The Sisters of Mercy are a reminder that like Cocteau Twins & The Smiths of the potency of the single/e.p. format in the 1980s - building their sound over the releases compiled here and waiting five years before releasing their debut album `First and Last and Always.' Not something you'd get from bands these days or even in the last decade or so...

Some Girls Wander By Mistake was the compilation of their early years and a companion to the major label compilation A Slight Case of Overbombing. It includes their 1980 debut single The Damage Done, which became very collectable and was rumoured to have been paid for by the Psychedelic Furs' singer Richard Butler. I can't say that any of the three tracks are that exciting - The Damage Done is slightly better than the Gary Marx-compositions Watch and Home of the Hitmen.

The band expanded with the arrival of Craig Adams, later followed by guitarist Ben Gunn - a series of classic singles and e.p.'s were released. 1982's Body Electric b/w Adrenochrome was great stuff - drug inflected goth that nodded to their influences with included Motorhead, the Stooges & Suicide. Body Electric would be re-recorded for 1984's Body & Soul e.p., possibly in a superior version - while Adrenochrome remains a favourite, despite the fact its central guitar riff is a speeded up version of Bela Lugosi's Dead by Bauhaus!!!

The Furs' John Ashton produced the next wave of material - 1983's Anaconda b/w Phantom, the Alice/Floorshow/Phantom/1969 single, and the Reptile House e.p. Anaconda is a demented version of pop which some object to, I think it's fine, but do wonder why Good Things (which featured in a Peel Session of the era) didn't make the cut?

The album is a collection of all the Sister's 12" singles up to 1984 and shows how the band developed before releasing its first album in 1985 (First last and always), the contrast in experimentation is easily spotted between tracks from the first E.P (The Damage Done {1980}), the 1983 'Reptile house E.P' (featuring some very slow drum and vocal melodies) through to the almost Dance-like Tracks such as 'Floorshow' (Alice E.P {1983}) and the original version of the 90's Classic 'Temple of love' (Temple of Love E.P {1983}- which also includes an excelent cover of the rolling stones song-'Gimme Shelter').With the progresively intermingling melodies and imaginitive Drum beats this compilation of E.Ps is a must for anyones' Rock collection, as it contains very influential material that still influences Rock, Indie and Even Dance artists even today. Verdict-Recomended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection 23 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion most post punk bands released their best work in the earlier part of their careers. The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cocteau Twins and Killing Joke spring to mind.

The Sisters of Mercy were no different and this compilation pulls together the singles and EPs from 1980 to 1983 that were previously only available on vinyl.

The group's sound is characterized by Andrew Eldritch's deep voice, cynical lyrics and stripped down rock sound. The minimal drum machine rhythms and Craig Adams distorted bass drive the songs forward with real purpose. The guitar playing throughout is stripped back only kicking in where necessary.

I personally much prefer this period of the band to the later more commercial records. I just feel that the early records have more menace, intensity and atmosphere despite the smaller recording budget. I find Floodland a little overblown at times and Vision Thing never really did it for me.

Most of the tracks are really strong particularly Alice, Floorshow, Body Electric and Burn. Temple of Love is perhaps too long and I'm not sure about their cover of "Gimme Shelter" but the rest are very enjoyable.

I grew out of "Goth" years ago but this collection still has something about it. My only big complaint is that they should have extended the time period to include the "Body and Soul" EP as this included an excellent version of Body Electric plus a chilling track called "Afterhours".

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational! 11 Dec 2010
By sbdags
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a delight.

It can be hard going for the later Sisters' fan but there are some real gems on here. Stand outs are Alice, Temple of Love, Body Electric, Andrenachrome and Gimme Shelter. The production is what it is - a band beginning their life and this adds to the charm. I actually love The Damage Done and it shows what a great flying start they had.

The Reptile House EP tracks are not for the uninitiated. You have been warned. They are somewhat dark and atmospheric compared to the rest. You can tell that the band wasn't really involved and these are solo tracks.

Another must have Sisters album and it preserves the genius known as Andrew Eldritch.
