The question mark here refers to your state of mind after you have heard these songs for the first time. On this album The Comsats knock off all the rough edges evident on their debut album. The level of intensity shown here is many ratchets up on "Waiting for a miracle" except maybe for "Postcard". The only lightness on this second album are the songs "Dark parade" and "Goat of the west", and then only because these two songs deal with real life political events (a rarity in this band's output). The playing is that bit more assured, and there is a real sense of anguish coming through that you can only avoid by not listening to these songs. This CD reissue comes with extra tracks that didn't make the original vinyl version (tracks 11-15) of which "At sea" is outstanding, proving that rock musicians can create a requiem. An album to seek out as others have sought the grail. Words fail me, really!

This album is due for release in April. The great thing about this, is that it will give a second opportunity for people to get access to the Comsat Angels finest hour. Never a commercial record but who cares? This is a record that is very much in the Unknown Pleasures genre in its sounds and existential focus. The outstanding opening track Eye Dance with its guitar power chords and psychedelic chord interplay backed by an aggressive drum pattern makes it such a wonderful cathartic experience. Gone proves that putting the drums high up in the mix can produce a wonderful record. This reminds me of the Gang of Four in how they drift in and out with their instrumentation and rejecting all the familiar predictable constructs of composition. But lets face it the Comsat Angels were pioneers in their own right. They never succumbed to the bland, predictable and throw away pop of the 80's. Sleep No more can still be played and still has its essence intact. We can see their influence in both the Bloc Party and Interpol. Mik Glaisher's drumming is extremely prominent throughout the record giving the record its strong foundations which allowed Steve Fellows, Andy Peake and Kevin Bacon to improvise without concern about the backbone of the sound. Listen to this, if you old you will find out just what you have been missing! If your young you have just found your Holy Grail!! Both ways just thank you lucky stars you got here in the END!!

I'm prompted to make some comments by the fact that there is only one other review, which is a shame considering how good this CD is. I get the impression that there are a lot of people who have not heard this that are missing out on something special. The fact that the Comsats were quite obscure in 1980 was part of the attraction but at my age that doesn't matter anymore. How can such quality lay forgotten and undiscovered ? This is the Comsat Angels at their peek, at their best. You can listen to Sleep No More any time of the day, any mood but you should be in the right mood to fully appreciate it. This is a collection of some melancholy songs. Put some headphones on and get lost in the unique sounds the Comsats make, great vocals, guitar and that drumming has always impressd me.
One of my favourite albums alongside others from the same era such as Crocodiles, Unknown Pleasures,17 Seconds, The Correct Use Of Soap and From The Lions Mouth.
This is a masterpiece with some very good extras (tracks 11 to 15).

The best album of the eighties from the most underrated band of all time. Dark and moody, probably not for everyone but atmosphere- wise it pre- dates that menacing, gothic tone which was later popularised by bands with eyeliner, but never improved upon. If you haven't got this and 'Sleep no more' your collection is woefully incomplete.

This needs a rainy afternoon, a big subwoofer and a bottle of red wine. It will shake you with its majestic and rolling basslines, dark lyrics and immensely danceable songs. Do your best shoegazing to this and you will end a happier, shinier and wiser human being. Dark Parade, Eye of the Lens smack your brain up and chide you for not listening to this music every day of your sad little life. Get one of these CDs and grow up to be big and strong.

From the ominous opening chords to the final drumbeats, this dark masterpiece delivers and has stood the test of time. Difficult to believe that it was recorded in the early 80s as it still sounds compelling and contemporary. The influence on the likes of The Editors and Interpol is undoubted but the Comsat Angels surely deserve to be more than a cult band fondly remembered by some and forgotten by too many. This album contains one of my desert island discs, "Our Secret", but in truth there is not a bad track. Strangely, when I saw The Angels in a rare gig in Sheffield recently they only played one track from this album, seen by many as their crowning achievement, and that the admittedly darkly impressive "Be Brave". Perhaps this album is so intense, so oppressive, in atmosphere and production that it does not lend itself to the superficial pleasures of a live concert, where it is too easy to slip into all surface, no feeling mode when a band is trying to cater for the typical concert-goer who "wants a good time". A good time for all is certainly not to be had on this album because brilliant as it is it is certainly not easy listening in any sense of the word. The sound is huge, powerful, in fact over-powering as the drum sound is large, perhaps a little too large as it tends to drown out Steve's superb vocals at times. The lyrical subject matter is all despair and paranoia but with chinks of light showing through (the afore-mentioned, almost uplifting, anthemic "Our Secret")and reveals its disbelief at the election of Reagan as president and, with stunning aural story-telling, the true story of a fatally-botched mission to save American hostages called "Dark Parade".Read more ›
