Format: Audio CD
Borrowing heavily from 'The Sisters of Mercy' and 'The Mission' this CD covers all the standard goth bases but without the group ever forging an identity of their own.

The result is average goth-fare, but it could have been so much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even a match for the imperious Sisters. 28 Oct. 2008
By Sera69 - Published on
Wholely derivative yet utterly brilliant, this is pure Goth and as close to the perfect Sisters album as it's possible to get without being from Leeds or featuring Andrew E.

It's unadulterated by the later industrial stylings the band would adopt and unencumbered by the dreaded cover version or remix that props up so many of their albums. This is 'First And Last And Always' with a beefed up production and slightly more Ooomph. It's depths aren't as dark but the choruses are bigger.

All that may make it seem as if 'Eye For The Main Chance' is some poor rip off but it stands squarely on it own two feet. It's just about different enough to give Rosetta Stone their own identity while still being soaked completely in Goth. Real Goth too, not HIM or Marilyn Manson etc.

If you like the Sisters, snakebite & black and black you'll love this. Try also to d/l the song 'Adrenaline' (It's on one of Rosetta Stone's many compilations) which is a pure-bred dancefloor classic up there with 'Temple of Love' and the pinnacle of this bands achievements before they descended into sub Nine Inch Nails electronica.
