Soft Cell's fourth and last studio album, "This Last Night In Sodom" is the music that Ball and Almond wanted to make. This album reflects the results of much time spent by the band in the USA at the time and is a grittier more aggressive sound that is far removed from the pop of "Tainted Love". Choosing stand out tracks is diffcult as they are all good in their own way - "The Best Way To Kill" would be it at a push. If you've only ever heard Tainted Love, Bedsitter, Torch, etc. this will come as a real culture shock, but it reflects a period of unstability and confusion within the Almond/Ball combo which has manifested itself in a great album of angst and frustration. Fantastic, dark and moody.

'This Last Night...in Sodom' was Soft Cell's messy adieu from 1984, the result of an announced 'retirement' following Marc Almond's meltdown which involved Marc & the Mambas, a whip and a music journalist. They'd stopped having hits (ironically with two great singles 'Where the Heart Is' & 'Numbers'), Dave Ball's 'In Strict Tempo' had him record with Genesis P-Orridge and Gavin Friday, while Almond's Mambas-material was set on auto-destruct ('Catch a Fallen Star', 'A Million Manias'). Soft Cell took to murdering Suicide's 'Ghost Rider' with Foetus' Jim Thirwell , as Almond was briefly in The Immaculate Consumptives (with Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch & Thirwell) as well as guesting on Psychic TV's 'Force the Hand of Chance' (on the fantastic 'Guiltless'). Soft Cell were anti-pop here; the reformed 21st Century version of SC returned to the classic pop of 'Non Stop Erotic Cabaret' and much of 'The Art of Falling Apart.'
Almond & Ball were apparently aiming for a blend of amphetamines & R'N'B, opener 'Mr Self Destruct' epitomises this approach with harmonica, dirty organ as Almond seems to invite self-destruction "shooting the 'A'" and all that. 'Slave to This'is very Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV - a babble of Almond raps colliding with each other as Ball goes for an industrial sound.'Little Rough Rhinestone' meanwhile shows that Almond & Ball could still do pop if they wanted - which tracks like 'Surrender to a Stranger' & bonus-track 'Disease & Desire' similarly highlight.

Soft Cell's most honest album. Just listen to those lyrics and read those song titles, Mr Self Destruct, Slave to this, Surrender and The best way to kill. Their last studio album is certainly different from previous output, the songs appear to be more personal and heartfelt with an undercurrent of despair or perhaps even anger. The electronica is tuned down a little replaced by a slightly more melodious and often grander sound altogether. Almonds clear ambitions for far more musical diversity is obvious and we didn't have to wait very long. Perhaps this move to a slightly less commercial but far more personal eventual end product eventually broke up the band and allowed Almond to experiment even further in his later albums.

I played this album to death when I was studying for my A levels and remember it well spinning on my cheap turntable with terribly tinny speakers in my tiny bedroom. Happy days! Stand out tracks for me are Soul Inside and Down In the Subway.

The end of short lived but prolific era.

This is wild and wonderful, apocalyptic Khaos, dark dark demented murder, acid, speed and death all wrapped up in a hurtling through the stale pub air slobbered over kebab at 4am as the bar has shut just that bit too early but way way too late and you eye the dregs of the losers around you while rolling a smoke through half opened watering eyes all flapping and squinting and prism soaked just like the noise mingling with the decades old patterned carpet, the wall to wall and the ear to ear meeting as the subway car screams to a halt in your pants and the wind chases up and vanishes your pathetic limp smoke and you realise you finished your whiskey, ice and all, & now the bar is closed and you still remember your name, oh no, wait, you don’t, mission accomplished. Yea, the album is kinda like being conscious when you would be better off a sheep.

This last night in sodam soft cell !! I still remember how many times I played this album when I was young a beautiful album that I still remember the excellent songs of soft cell last album together , heart breaking song where was your heart when you needed it most and down in the subway !! Every track on this album is fantastic and is one of the best albums ever made , it was the last album Marc almond and Dave ball would do together !! Soul inside explains it all , this collection of songs moves away from the disco side of soft cell and more into rock side of soft cell !!

One of Softcells best albums very dark i love it no-one comes near to Marcs voice he knows how to get the crowds and drawing them in at the same time mysterious to although poor Softcell have had some awful things said about them not true what you see is what you get they are the best electronic band of all time there will never ever be anyone like them again not in this life time they are so of there time and should be praised for all the hard work they put into what they do and been Last Night In Sodom i wouldnt mind the CD now i have the album i could play all day and play it Loud and be proud to be along and Massive Fan to And Of Marc Almond aswell they started with nothing remember that they have done fantastically very successful so i have nothing but admiration for them well done it gets my vote as do all there albums.
