5.0 out of 5 stars
Finally a decent compilation out there, 3 Jun 2003
In the past I have been very wary and sceptical of compilation albums. They would generally have a few songs you like and then be filled with mediocre material just to fill the CD. However this time I took a chance and bought DarkSide of the 80's and I wasn't dissapointed.
CD1 has your darker more 'gothy' tracks and CD2 is dare I say it a little more bouncy. There were a few bands and tracks I hadn't heard before but these seem to fit in well with the overall feel of the album, giving it depth and not just full of fillers.
I'd reccomend this to any fans of The Sisters of Mercy, The Mission, Fields of the Nephilim etc.
