5.0 out of 5 stars The Mish are back with a belter!! 28 Sep 2013
By Carl P
Format:Audio CD
Mr Hussey and cohorts are back with a belter!

Lyrically as strong as ever (Hussey is an underrated genius with the written word up there with Springsteen and Martin Gore in my view). The album runs the scale from punchy, edgy, fast paced rock right through to some epic ballads at the end (the last two tracks are right out of the Mission top drawer).

This is the work of a hungry, tight, ambitious band ready to explore new territory so it's a surprise that it's actually come from such established rockers who have been around for decades.

Put aside your preconceptions about what you think you know about the Mission and get this! It's a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Mission 24 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a real stripped down dirty rock and roll record. Did anyone seriousley expect Carved in Sand 2 !!, its well over twenty years since those days, what band would not want to move on. This still has plenty of trademark Mission moments and the return of Simon Hinkler has added real bite into the guitar driven sound on this album.

The whole album is excellent but the last five tracks really do the business with aint no prayer in the bible my personal favourite.

I loved the last Mission album God is a Bullet but this sounds much more like a band effort.The return of Hinkler and Craig added to Husseys rasping vocals and first class songs giving it those extra ingrediants.

Music will always be personal taste and yes we all have our own favourite bands. I am just happy they are back together but delighted that the album has not dissapointed and come up with goods. Great work boys, bring on the UK shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hussey is a harlot...... 25 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely love this album! I saw most of the songs 'trialled' live in Bristol earlier in the year and have been waiting for this release ever since. Stand out songs for me are Black Cat Bone, Swan Song & Sometimes the Brightest Light Comes From the Darkest Place, but there are no bad songs or fillers. The album sounds raw and Wayne's vocals, in my opinion, sound the best they have for a long time. As a band, they sound happy & content, something that was missing from God is a Bullet, which is also a fantastic album.

This album rocks and sounds damn fine live as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is... 30 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Apparently the catchphrase during the recording of this album was 'it is what it is' and that pretty much sums up this record. It was committed to tape without over-thinking it after an intense period of writing/rehearsing and trying out the material in Bristol earlier this year. That inevitably has both its upsides and downsides. Hussey's voice sounds raw, bordering on hoarse on occasion; stripped of any effects that he used in the past. It benefits Hinkler's guitar parts when he gets a free hand on the hard-rock songs the band excels in. The dry mastering is modern enough to fit in with current tastes. 'Sometimes the Brightest Light' stands out and all the usual references to Led Zeppelin, John Lennon and his own back-catalogue are there. Inevitably certain aspects would have benefitted from more time. And it will be interesting to see how these songs develop in a live setting.

3.0 out of 5 stars A grower 25 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a huge Mission fan for the last 25 years and have pretty much everything they ever released so it was inevitable that I buy this. I saw them rehearse early versions of this album earlier in the year and have been eagerly awaiting its release, however I am slightly disappointed.
The lyrics are pretty dire in places, I know Wayne's written a mountain of songs so it's gotta be pretty hard but then share some of the writing responsibilities. I like lyrics, they can make or break a song for me and that's what has happened here. Also Wayne really does get gruff on some of these tunes, too gruff, he's got a good voice but it can grate when he sings like he's been up for three days with nothing to drink. It sounds like he's straining.
Musically the album is fantastic, the tunes are well structured and performed and it will be pretty good live. If you know the Mission then I'd put this album with Blue. The best album they have released in the last 20 years is Aura but they've left that sound far behind.
This is a bit maudlin in places and there's plenty of references to the bible and religion, not sure if Hussey's suddenly found religion or not.
Most of the songs on here are quite long, not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Songs like Drag pick up the tempo and will probably be a live favourite, it's a bit like 1969. Just Another Pawn in your Game is a bit like Maggie May in places. The highlight for me is probably The Girl in a Furskin Rug - more like "poppy" Mission. But as the title of this review suggests I think some of the others will definitely be "growers" and get better with more listens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart. 24 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Well, this album has certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons, hasn't it? I haven't seen a new album from any artist for many a year that has polarised and divided it's audience quite like this new album from The Mission. The responses are extreme, no middle ground wherever you look. Nothing average about this album. It's either being loved or absolutely hated.
The Mission, or should I say Wayne Hussey in particular, has never played it safe, has he? Every album he releases regardless of whatever name he uses has been different. Why, in the last two years alone he has released Curios with Julianne Regan which was all glorious shiny techno pop and then the Ungodly Hour with Marcus Birro which was Swedish poetry set to home-grown acoustic blues & folk. And now the dirty rock of The Brightest Light. One thing is for sure and that is Hussey is a maverick and does divide opinion. He very rarely conforms to expectation.
And this is the problem with this album for a lot of people. It doesn't conform to what is expected of either Hussey or The newly reformed Mission with both Simon Hinkler and Craig Adams back in the ranks. it was always implausible to expect a new Carved In Sand or Children or God's Own Medicine.
Sure, I can see if you're a fan of Wasteland or Deliverance then this album is probably not for you. But, like anyone that has seen The Mission live will attest, they are first and foremost a rock band. A really f***** good one too. They always have been contrary to public and media preconceptions.
This is a great rock record, quite possibly their best ever and certainly one of the very best of the 2013 releases.
It's a proper grown up album made by blokes who are obviously enjoying what they do and feeling like they have nothing to prove.
