It's dark, yet not depressing. It's like little else, really.
Dominion/Mother Russia is a fantastic album opener, and quite possibly the best track overall. Lucretia My Reflection and Driven Like The Snow also stand out similarly. 1959 is pretty much the only ballad-like song, and is somewhat separated from the rest of the album by this. Still not a bad track, though.
This Corrosion, however, is an absolute epic of a song, lasting - as someone said earlier - nigh on 11 minutes.
Fantastic song, fantastic album. Buy it.
Although a Goth rock band Andrew Eldritch Following the exit of Hussey and Adams who formed The Mission moved the sound from the conventional Guitar, bass and drum to more electronic sound and the album had that atmospheric sound very similar to Joy Division last album Closer.
The album had some all time classics such as the top 20 hits Dominion and This Corrosion but on the album they are some hidden gems such as Flood I and Flood II and my personal favourite Lucretia My reflection. Also there is a haunting tune called 1959 which may have inspired the likes of All About Eve.
I would put this up in the top 10 classics of the 1980s as the sound and production was fantastic mainly due to the skills of Jim Steinmann and the lyrics of Andrew Eldritch.
Buy it you wont be disappointed.
While I've never been able to separate their very best tracks, I will say that I think Floodland ranks as the band's strongest album overall. It's the one I come back to again and again. It has everything: bitter, sweet and bittersweet lyrics worthy of Philip Larkin, driving bass rhythms, and a masterclass in production atmospherics. The only gothic rock album by anyone else that even comes close, in my humble opinion, is Bloody Kisses by Type O Negative. Oh, and if anyone's interested, the videos made to promote this album, and available on the Shot collection, are terric too.

Better than I thought it would be. Had the singles back in the 80's. Album tracks not as good, but decent.Published 4 months ago by Dave W
