4.0 out of 5 stars Goth Goodness: Why Was I So Late to the Party?, 20 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Anthology - The Phonogram Years (Audio CD)
At the last minute, I bought tickets to see The Wonder Stuff (one of my top 5 favourite bands) supporting The Mission in Leeds. Realising I probably only knew maybe 2 Mission tracks ("Butterfly on a Wheel" and "Tower of Strength") and that this was a bit disgraceful for an ex-Goth, I went to Amazon to provide me with an album and this is the one I found.

After one listen I was deeply annoyed at myself that I hadn't heard much more of this before (this was confirmed at the gig, when they were wonderful)and could have been listening to this trove of wonder for years.

This seems to contain all The Mission you need, with so many loping guitar lines, Hussey's distinctive vocals and some versions on this that really bring out different elements. I wasn't aware of the cover of "Like A Hurricane", one of my all-time favourites from a hero, Neil Young. It doesn't touch the original, but it still soars, especially live. "Butterfly" and "Tower of Strength" are still the highlights, but this is an essential purchase for fan and potential new fan alike.
