And here we are 30 odd years later with another one star review!I'm amazed that the funny little band that saw me through the last couple of years of school have become so lionised (particulary by our American cousins).You can't knock this album as it sounded like nothing else then and holds up well even today.
Like the Beatles(!) a remaster has been a long time coming but let's hope it sounds better than ever.
I dare you !!!!
Having had the original cd for years out of sentimentality I bought this for the extra bits and bobs and because I'm a sad old thing but was pleasantly surprised that the remastering has returned the sheer power to the tracks that I had forgotten completely,it now sounds almost like a different record(showing my ae there!).
Buy it now.
Lovely box by the way which seems to have been assembled by small children in a craftwork class.
For the quality of the music I'll simply quote Ned Raggett's review in All Music Guide. "Few debut albums ever arrived so nearly perfectly formed; that In the Flat Field practically single-handedly invented what remains for many as the stereotype of goth music -- wracked, at times spindly vocals about despair and desolation of many kinds, sung over mysterious and moody music -- demonstrates the sui generis power of both the band and its work. This said, perhaps the best thing about the album isn't what it's supposed to sound like, but what it actually does -- an awesomely powerful, glam-inspired rock band firing on all fours, capable of restraint and complete overdrive both, fronted by a charismatic, storming frontman...In the Flat Field started off Bauhaus' album career with a near-perfect bang."
To call any of it Goth (not necessarily Killing Joke) complete misses the point and unfairly labels what remains to this day, original and truly inspiring music.
This album still sounds as great as it did all those years ago. There's not many bands today who are prepared to take such risks but Bauhaus did and they pulled it off with aplomb.
