In every respect, this is an awesome album. The acoustic guitar that gently leads us into that lyrically unsurpassed masterpiece "Like A Hurricane" swing us and twist us and give love purpose, no matter how hopeless it may appear, as we are carried fantastically by the newly formed guitar combination of Wayne Hussey and Simon Hinlker, supported by Craig Adams' resonant base. Over The Hill And Far Away And Naked Savage, lift us gently and fill our every fibre with the passion of life as they prepare us for Serpents Kiss, the ultimate Mission classic, and Dancing Barefoot. But what could possibly prepare us for Wake? This is The Mission and their darkest, their most sublime. This is love and death and the tragedy of life, poetically brilliant, musically haunting, this is, indeed, God's Own Medicine. And yet, as if Wake was not enough to lift the soul to a new plateau, the reprise of Like A Hurricane (Extended), reminds us that in life, love and music, there is only the moment... That moment is now!!!
