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.

Out of the ashes of the old Sisters, in the aftermath of litigation and recrimination, this album reaffirmed the faith of die-hard fans. As far as I am concerned, the Sisters never made music like this before or after - and neither has anyone else! From the thumping bassline of Lucretia to the Baroque swirls of This Corrosion, the record takes your breath away. And still does. It's hard to believe we first heard it in 1987; it was so far outside of it's time that it has not aged at all. There are still twists in the lyrics that suddenly make sense after more than a decade. A masterpiece.

This album absolutely owns. Admittedly, I wasn't a fan of what is classed as "goth", but regardless, I love this album.
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.

Quite possibly one of the best albums of the 1980s. It was a while since I heard any of SOM material as did have some on vinyl but over the years the items go missing. I decided to buy the album to relive the youth and the album sounds even better 20 years on!

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.

Well old Goths never die they only get darker..... There are a whole generation of Emo's who think music started about 2005 they need to buy this album and find out about their dark heritage...Andrew Eldritch burst onto the scene with First and last and Always the seminal Goth album. This was his second release as the SOM after the original band broke up ( to form The Mission). This album broke the charts, both album and singles and all of a sudden the Gothic Music Scene had an acceptable radio face. Singles This Corrosion, Dominium and Lucretia, my Reflection blew the radio pop away. The Darkness finally had a champion.....For an album nearly 30 years old the songs still stand strong and should be an essential addition to any would-be emo's download collection

Gothic rock? Call it what you want, this is a simply brilliant album. The presence of the extra tracks is welcome, especially the cover of Emma (originally by Hot Chocolate), but it's the classics that make this worth your money. All three of the Sisters' LPs have their moments. For me, the absolute standout tracks on First and Last and Always were Nine While Nine and Some Kind of Stranger, with the title track and Marian bringing up the rear. On Vision Thing, the mighty I Was Wrong and Something Fast were the two that really stayed with me, with a tip of the hat to When You Don't See Me and More. Everyone has their favourites, but I believe Floodland's highpoints stand comparison with the Sisters' very best work. I'm thinking in particular of Lucretia My Reflection, Driven Like The Snow and 1959 - written after someone suggested to Eldritch that he try composing something on the piano.

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.
