4.0 out of 5 stars Pure goth rock at it's mystical best 11 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Serpent's Kiss is a classic. Other highlights include Like a Hurricane, The Chrystal Ocean and Naked and Savage. The 1st Mish album is raw and dark. Great live band now back together. If you like this buy Aura their new album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mission - The First Chapter 27 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars mISSION uK 17 Dec 2004
By Joseph Laguna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this CD online. I have the original - album version. I got it hot off the press back in the day. This was and is one of my favorite albums.

I recommend the Chameleons UK if you like this stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leading the way for the revival of modern goth 18 Jun 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes, the first chapter has been written and a dynamic chapter it was. But don't fret, goth is not dead. Hear for yourself! I only wished they included the 12" versions for each song.....

5.0 out of 5 stars A Super Cool CD to Own!! 28 Jan 2004
By "80sretromusic" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A real gothic album that makes XTC look like children. I have been following this band since the separation of Sistes of Mercy in the 80's. In the later years thier sound was like Led Zeppelin which this previous CD a must for anyone who wants to relive gothic rock.
