5.0 out of 5 stars "Don't back away yet, from destinations set", 27 May 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Crackle - The Best of Bauhaus (Audio CD)
If you're like me, one of the things most likely to impress
upon you from this disc is just how seamlessly the band members'
skills and talents interweave into a perfect, flawless whole.
The first track "Double Dare" for instance starts with
ominous, relentless bass, shimmering guitar (both are pure
electricity) and chaotic pummeling drums that constantly
waver from left speaker to right. Pete Murphy's vocals complete
the circle with urgency and no time for second best, in
his rant against conformity.
Bauhaus create an ominous and electric mood that defies
complacency and celebrates defiance. Other classic tracks
include "Sanity Assassin", "She's In Parties", "Dark Entries"
as well as an inspiring cover of Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust".
And of course, the masterpiece "Bela Lugosi's Dead" -
the tapping drums, dread inspiring bass and wavering
yet constant guitar have surely passed into legend and
Pete's delivery simultantenously evokes sympathy, dread and regret. A
startling debut single and an all time masterpiece.
Of course a predilection for gothic imagery and punk
abandon is desirable but whatever your prefernce, when you
discuss tight, perfectly formed and executed bands, Bauhaus
should definetly be on your list.
