5.0 out of 5 stars Put The CD In And Press Play!, 3 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Press The Eject (Audio CD)
Press the Eject and give me the tape, well apart from the outdated title, now that we are in the CD era this CD is the best Bauhaus album released. It includes all their best tracks from the first two albums while Bauhaus were still mixing their unique gothic music with a harder punk edge. Kicking off with probably one of their most famous tracks In The Flat Field; Peter Murphy's vocals live are even more passionate than in the studio which simply enhances their raw energy unleashing track after track of the best Gothic band of the eighties. Of course Bauhaus live just wouldn't be complete without including Bela Lugosi's Dead, probably one of the most famous of their songs, even live they kept the atmosphere the track was intended for. As with the more melodic Hollow Hills Bauhaus show that they can diverse their style without sounding disjointed as one track keeps you in anticipation for the next. The highlight of the album for me is tracks 10 and 11, Stigmata Martyr is probably my favourite track from the band, which just builds you up to Dark Entries a heavy drum loaded song with almost vicious vocals. The extra tracks on this CD are not just time wasters either with the Classic submarine intro from Double Dare and the Lou Reed cover with Nico as special guest fill this CD with 72 minutes of hard Gothic - Punk from the best in the business.
