Greatest recorded work from rock's most neglected talent,
By A Customer
This review is from: Floodland (Audio CD)
This album is the second long player released by the sisters - who for all intents and purposes are Andrew Eldeitch. Floodland is the greatest work from rock's most neglected talent. Forget the ball and chain 'goth' tag and instead concerntrate your attentions upon the work of a lyricist whose subtext's have subtexts and a (very) dry humour all of their own. From a first listen the stand out tracks are the powerful 'Lucretia' and the opereatic 'This Corrosion' co-produced by that old ham Jim Steinman (the track Meatloaf could never quite pull off) but repeated plays reveal 'Driven Like the Snow' as the album's high point. The song builds to an emotional climax of stunning intensity. Leave your prejudices behind and discover the work of an artist who proves that rock still has a lot to offer beyond the usual cliches.
