5.0 out of 5 stars Bass, Synths, Percussion & Proclamations 27 Feb 2014
By A W W
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is wild and wonderful, apocalyptic Khaos, dark dark demented murder, acid, speed and death all wrapped up in a hurtling through the stale pub air slobbered over kebab at 4am as the bar has shut just that bit too early but way way too late and you eye the dregs of the losers around you while rolling a smoke through half opened watering eyes all flapping and squinting and prism soaked just like the noise mingling with the decades old patterned carpet, the wall to wall and the ear to ear meeting as the subway car screams to a halt in your pants and the wind chases up and vanishes your pathetic limp smoke and you realise you finished your whiskey, ice and all, & now the bar is closed and you still remember your name, oh no, wait, you don’t, mission accomplished. Yea, the album is kinda like being conscious when you would be better off a sheep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soft Cell as they wanted it 10 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
Soft Cell's fourth and last studio album, "This Last Night In Sodom" is the music that Ball and Almond wanted to make. This album reflects the results of much time spent by the band in the USA at the time and is a grittier more aggressive sound that is far removed from the pop of "Tainted Love". Choosing stand out tracks is diffcult as they are all good in their own way - "The Best Way To Kill" would be it at a push. If you've only ever heard Tainted Love, Bedsitter, Torch, etc. this will come as a real culture shock, but it reflects a period of unstability and confusion within the Almond/Ball combo which has manifested itself in a great album of angst and frustration. Fantastic, dark and moody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soft Cell's messy adieu from 1984 - 19 Nov 2005
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
'This Last Night...in Sodom' was Soft Cell's messy adieu from 1984, the result of an announced 'retirement' following Marc Almond's meltdown which involved Marc & the Mambas, a whip and a music journalist. They'd stopped having hits (ironically with two great singles 'Where the Heart Is' & 'Numbers'), Dave Ball's 'In Strict Tempo' had him record with Genesis P-Orridge and Gavin Friday, while Almond's Mambas-material was set on auto-destruct ('Catch a Fallen Star', 'A Million Manias'). Soft Cell took to murdering Suicide's 'Ghost Rider' with Foetus' Jim Thirwell , as Almond was briefly in The Immaculate Consumptives (with Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch & Thirwell) as well as guesting on Psychic TV's 'Force the Hand of Chance' (on the fantastic 'Guiltless'). Soft Cell were anti-pop here; the reformed 21st Century version of SC returned to the classic pop of 'Non Stop Erotic Cabaret' and much of 'The Art of Falling Apart.'
Almond & Ball were apparently aiming for a blend of amphetamines & R'N'B, opener 'Mr Self Destruct' epitomises this approach with harmonica, dirty organ as Almond seems to invite self-destruction "shooting the 'A'" and all that. 'Slave to This'is very Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV - a babble of Almond raps colliding with each other as Ball goes for an industrial sound.'Little Rough Rhinestone' meanwhile shows that Almond & Ball could still do pop if they wanted - which tracks like 'Surrender to a Stranger' & bonus-track 'Disease & Desire' similarly highlight.
