3.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad, just not very 'Mission'., 7 April 2009

This review is from: Masque (MP3 Download)
OK, first the bad news. This was a *real* big departure from the Mission's usual fare, in fact it's a stretch to call this album 'gothic' at all. And it doesn't really tie together like truly good albums should, you won't want to put Masque on 'Play All' on the CD player.

But the good news is that some of the tracks aren't that bad. Tracks like the opening 'Never Again' and 'Shades of Green' are catchy, sounding more like Siouxsie and the Banshees trying to be commercial than the Mission, admittedly. But what's so bad about that?

'Even you may shine' and 'Sticks and Stones' are good and 'You Make me Breathe' and 'Until there's another Sunrise' are very upbeat, feel-good pop songs. Not very Mission at all but I liked them. Overall I liked about half the tracks on the album so I'd advise anyone thinking of buying it to maybe preview the tracks first and buy a couple to see what they think. Heck, buy the first two songs as they will tell you everything you need to know about the album.

In short not the best Mission album ever but not the disaster that other reviews make out. Don't hate the Mission for trying to go a bit mainstream occasionally! Everybody does.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better options...., 19 Feb 2009
This review is from: Masque (Audio CD)
Not sure what a "masque" is, but a "mask" hides something, this album definately hides what The Mission were about.

Even Wayne admitted this was the wrong direction for this band.

Not sure what else can be said, apart from please buy their other material, as it is worth owning - especially the awesome "Children" album.
